DAR SulKud launches geotagging of infra projects

piaISULAN, Sultan Kudarat, July 14 (PIA) – The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Sultan Kudarat rolled out on  July 8  a  project to geotag all foreign-funded infrastructure projects on July 8, an initiative to mark its locations and verify its existence,.

The infra projects in the towns of Palimbang and Senator Ninoy Aquino were among the first projects to be assigned with geotag.

DAR SK technical personnel said that the geotagging of infra projects would yield in more benefits even in its initial stage.

Engr. Alinader Dima, chief of Access Facilitation and Access Enhancement Services (AFAES) Section said that with infra projects geotagged, any person can see at one glance the location of each project and the kind of project implemented for every municipality.

He added that other agencies planning to see an overview of the projects implemented in the province or identify projects for implementation can utilize the mapping data of DAR to avoid duplication of infrastructure projects.

AFAES Section technical staff, Engr. Richard Jay Gestupa said that although he is using a smartphone with a built-in GPS to perform the task, the difference in meters is only minimal as compared to using a top-of-the-line geotagging equipment.

Rodolfo Alburo, Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II, said that geotagging is a technology readily available today which if utilized can enhance the mapping of infrastructure projects of DAR.

He added that with this initiative, DAR–SK is up-to-date with technology in its approach towards improving services without incurring additional cost. (JJBDael-DAR-SK/ACAgad-PIA 12)
