UP Applied Geodesy & Space Technology Research Lab.

Leading the Philippines in applied geodesy and space technology research and development.

Research Projects

Aside from research projects by graduate student members of the AGST Lab Research Group, the AGST Lab also undertakes several, externally-funded research projects. These projects  made possible the purchase of many laboratory equipments and facilities that are routinely used by the AGST Lab researchers, undergraduate and graduate students of the Department of Geodetic Engineering and other UP departments and institutes.

    • SMTFCMMS Component Projects:

      • Project 1: Determination of Water Impoundment Capacity along the Wawa Reservoir for Flood Control and Mitigation Applications

        • Project Leader: Prof. Louie P. Balicanta
        • Objective:  To determine the water impoundment capacity along the Wawa Reservoir for flood control and mitigation applications.
      • Project 2: Establishment of spillover elevation along flood prone river systems: Marikina-Pasig River

        • Project Leader: Dr. Enrico C. Paringit
        • Objective: To establish spillover elevation along flood prone river systems: Marikina-Pasig River.
      • Project 3. Modeling of Flashflood Events Using Integrated GIS and Hydrological Simulations

        • Project Leader: Engr. Jojene R. Santillan
        • Co-researchers: Roseanne V. Ramos, Girlie David, Sabrina Recamadas, Rudolph Peralta
        • Study Area: Pasig-Marikina River Basin, Metro Manila and Rizal Province, Philippines
        • Objectives: To develop flood models for near real time flood inundation monitoring, and for water level forecasting in Marikina, Pasig and San Juan Rivers.
        • Terminal Report: Download here
        • Major Outputs:
          • I aM AWaRe: a Google Map and Google Earth-based online visualization tool for monitoring flood inundation and forecasting of water levels in rivers as applied to the Marikina, San Juan and Pasig Rivers in Metro Manila, Philippines
          • Marikina RELieF: Marikina RivEr Level Forecasting – provides water level forecast for the next 48 hours at specific locations along Marikina River based on recorded rainfall events 3 days prior
          • Marikina River Near Real Time Flood Inundation Monitoring System – provides near-real time information if there is flooding or not along the banks of the Marikina River. If there is flooding, the system provides the extent of flooding due to overflow of the river.
          • Pasig River Near Real Time Flood Inundation Monitoring System – provides near-real time information if there is flooding or not along the banks of the Pasig River. If there is flooding, the system provides the extent of flooding due to overflow of the river.
          • San Juan River Near Real Time Flood Inundation Monitoring System – provides near-real time information if there is flooding or not along the banks of the San Juan River. If there is flooding, the system provides the extent of flooding due to overflow of the river.
        • Data Sources and Acknowledgements
          • Project NOAH and MMDA‘s Enhanced Flood Control and Operation Warning System (EFCOS)– for the real-time rainfall and water level data
          • Collective Strengthening of Community Awareness for Natural Disasters (CSCAND) agencies for allowing us to use the LiDAR digital elevation dataset that was used as main source of topographic information during model development
          • National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) – for the ALOS AVNIR 2 satellite images used in the land-cover parameterization of the HEC RAS and HEC HMS models
          • Jen Alconis of Project NOAH (for the shape to kml scripting and kml uploads to NOAH)
          • John Robert Mendoza and Nena Carina Espanola of ASTI Grid Operations Team (for the scripting)
          • Engr. Jessie Linn P. Ablao, Engr. Joemari Caballero, Engr. Edgardo Macatulad  – for the field survey assistance
          • DOST PCIEERD – for the funding
      • Project 4:  Development of Geospatial Analysis Tools for Catchment Runoff Responses to Extreem Rainfall Events and Implications for Disaster and Environmental Management

        • Project Leader: Dr. Enrico C. Paringit
        • Objective: To develop and test a distributed hydrological model for the Marikina River Basi implemented under a dynamic GIS environment with parameteizations based on remote sensing data analysis.
  • Pasig River Tributaries Survey and Assessment Study (PRTSAS) – Phase II (2011-2012)

    A collaborative project between the UP TCAGP and the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission.
    Project Leader: Dr. Enrico C. Paringit
