    Hello Sir, I got a question. When was this map created? On what year?

    Thanks!

      Hello Cath, thank you for the comment. The map was created in 2009. However the data was digitized from an undated map that was produced using data from Bureau of Soils and Water Management (BSWM), as our source claimed, though they didn’t mention about the date of the original data. Browsing through the BSWM website, I can’t find the said map source that was mentioned. We’re sorry we can’t provide you any further details.

    Hello sir,
    We are two students who are doing research on Bohol, and we were wondering who we should contact to ask if we could get some of these maps as a dwg file in order to overlay and work further with them?
    Thanks!
