DILIMAN, QUEZON CITY – In the spirit of free data exchange towards innovation and informed decision-making, Grupo Kalinangan Inc. pairs up with DOST’s Project NOAH in combining digital heritage information with geological and meteorological data. As the team-up’s first step, participants screened from the pool of Philippine Heritage Map volunteers were trained on using OpenStreetMap, Project NOAH’s foremost source of building footprint information. Done last September 24, 2016 at the UP – National Institute of Geological Sciences, this is the first of a series of trainings aiming to gather data useful for both the Philippine Heritage Map and ISAIAH, Project NOAH’s new component advocating the use of the its data in providing capacity building activities for disaster risk reduction in local government units and other stakeholder groups.
