Welcome to LiPAD!

LiDAR Portal for Archiving and Distribution

LiPAD serves as the primary data access and distribution center of the Phil-LiDAR 1 and Phil-LiDAR 2 Programs, a Department of Science and Technology initiative that engages the University of the Philippines and fifteen (15) Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) throughout the country, with the aim to produce detailed flood hazard and resource maps using LiDAR technology.

The datasets, which include Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), Digital Terrain Models (DTMs), Orthophotos, Classified LAZ, Flood Hazard Maps and Resource Maps, are available for download in open and GIS-ready formats, for use by Local Government Units (LGUs), National Government Agencies (NGAs), members of the academe, and researchers, among others.


How to request LiDAR Data

Flood Hazard Maps

Flood Hazard Maps are still available at the LiPAD FMC website, without registration. Please proceed to the FMC sub-website if you are interested on downloading Flood Hazard Maps.

Resource Maps

Resource Maps are available on their respective portals produced by the components of the PHIL-LiDAR 2 Program. Please see the RESOURCE MAPS menu above if you are interested on obtaining resource maps.
