BAGUIO CITY, Philippines – To improve the industry, the municipal administration has signed an agreement…
DOST provides cutting-edge IT systems for Baguio’s disaster recovery plan.
The local administration can use the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) cutting-edge smart technology to assist in precise planning for resident safety.
We are creating a 3D GIS (geographic information system), which can depict data even when it is read from a 2D map. An algorithm and appropriateness model that may assess the state of the subsurface in a city at the regional or national level have been developed by me. During a Monday visit to the Smart City Operation Center at the Baguio Convention Center, DOST Secretary Renato Solidum Jr. remarked, “We are constructing a suitability-like model and algorithm where you can decide on a national, regional, and even for the city).”
Benjamin Magalong, the mayor of Baguio, gave the science chief a briefing on the projects the city is pursuing in the area of smart cities.
“If you have all those facts, this could be helpful for building settlements and schools. You can be given permission to use the geomapper, and you can use it. Iyong geomapper pwede kayong mabigyan ng credential.
The DOST’s geomapper is an online tool that allows members of the public to view the risks that a particular place presents, notify the owner of a building ahead of time, or provide information the owner can use to prevent or lessen the impact of the risk in the region.
The DOST had previously provided the local authority with a seismic map that is particularly specific for earthquakes and will be useful to engineers when planning constructions.
earthquake research. If the building is built with a design that matches the frequency of the earth’s movement and the shaking is high-frequency and quick-moving, the structure will collapse as a result of the amplified shaking. According to Solidum, “the frequency of the soil and the design of the building should be different, depending on what the lupa and the building’s Indesign frequency is.
Additionally, he said that when designing buildings, engineers and architects could consult the map to serve as a reference for their work.
It was created by a Filipino and is well-known throughout the world. We have another software, called Plan Smart Ready to Recover, that the Secretary claimed the city government could also utilize, particularly with the operations center that has been established and funded by the city and the federal government for Baguio and is information technology ready.
For the city government to launch its smart city project in 2020, the Office of the President provided PHP200 million, enabling it to set up an operations center.
In order to have a database that is uniform across the country, Solidum stated it is critical that the city government’s system be synchronized with the federal government.
For instance, he claimed that by sharing a database, the BLISTT (Baguio, La Trinidad, Itogon, Sablan, Tuba, and Tublay) regions could test the system.
When the NDRRMC (National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council) requests a recovery plan, they only need to write the location’s name and submit the report; the tables, charts, danger maps, and analyses will then be created. Since there are already options in the system, the individual will just examine the impact and the intervention, according to Solidum, who spoke to Magalong.
