Sat, 11/17/2007 - 12:54
Note: This Information Product is a first attempt to provide guidance in preparing the information needed for the CLUP. As more knowledge is gathered, the IP will be updated. Likewise, updates may be required due to new or changing land-use policies. Furthermore, data will continuously be prepared by the custodians, which may require updates. For the latest update, please check HLURB Homepage: http://www.hlurb.gov.ph/ or contact HLURB: telephone +632 927 2698       Step 1: Provide a Background and Identify the Objectives of the GIS Analysis     Public participation in planning needs political representation at grass roots level. Given the proper instruments, the Barangay Captain will duly play an important role in representing the barangay constituents in planning. The introduction of GIS in CLUP preparation enhances the option to make comparisons of the distribution/provision of goods and services among the different barangays in the municipality. The Barangay serves as a good common denominator for comparisons as population statistics are available. Likewise, at a barangay level, it makes it easy for the general public to understand existing planning issues where they have a direct stake. The objective is to show in a map the location and physical condition of the Barangay Halls.     Step 2: Identify the Indicators to Evaluate Objective Fulfillment     A requirement is that the Barangay Hall is furnished with an office and a space for public meetings and hearings. Likewise, there should be an adequate provision of equipment and furniture so that community gatherings can be conducted. The Planning Office will provide the office with tailored Information Products such as a Barangay Map/Plan, and information about CLUP projects so that the community can easily follow progress.     Step 3: Create the Database     The following attribute table may be used for this sector (and is used in this example). BI01 Barangay Office/Hall     Spatial     The feature type will be a point on a small scale map or a polygon on a large scale map showing the lot. The location will be traced by a GPS. Use if possible one and same place for all the GPS readings of the Barangay Hall, for example the entrance.     Photo showing the spot for GPS reading (if needed)     City/Municipal Hall (is also captured as it can house a Barangay Office as well)   Barangay Hall/Office       Step 4: Analyze the Data     The following Analyses layers can be prepared based on the Baseline Information:     Barangay without an Office/Hall or still under construction/renovation and still unusable   A Barangay Office with critical physical condition - unusable old building with no facilities or equipment to conduct the daily work.   A Barangay Office with poor physical condition - inadequate facilities and equipment, daily work is difficult.   Step 5: Present the Data     The location of the Barangay Halls was overlaid with the Population Density map to show information on population distribution with respect to its location.
