Are there any public or private sources of LIDAR data for San Paul river in Palawan (Philippines)? Searching online did not lead me to any sources, and I am unsure how the commercial world of LIDAR works. I'm speleo and I would like to know this area better. Thanks

The Philippine government with the aid of the UN has been doing LiDAR mapping of the major river basins. Here's a press release:

It appears the effort is part of the Philippines DREAM project (for disaster risk/assessment):

The University of the Philippines Los Banos has a page for LiDAR mapping of the Palawan province.

    I don't think you need to delete the question on GIS. Just add a comment to your question pointing back to this answer. – Andrew - OpenGeoCode Feb 17 '15 at 21:10

  • @Andrew-OpenGeoCode The Philippine government with the aid of the UN has been doing LiDAR mapping of the major river basins AFAK, the UN is not involved in the DREAM project. It's purely funded by the national government. dream.upd.edu.ph/about-us Or is the UN offering technical help? A reference would be nice :) – R.K. Aug 26 '15 at 12:40
