DENR commences cadastral survey to curb boundary conflicts

Mindoro, Philippines: The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 4B, Philippines, commissioned Cadastral Survey Project in the municipalities of Magsaysay and Calintaan, Occidental Mindoro. The project aims to establish project control points and political boundaries. 
The survey of these municipalities will be implemented in three phrases. The first phase will install new geodetic control points using the numerical computation of coordinates under the Philippine Reference System (PRS) Series of 1992. The second phase will be the installation of the barangay boundaries and the mapping of the entire municipalities while the last phase will cover the identification of lots of owners in all barangays. 
All monuments under this project will now have the new coordinates based on the PRS ’92 System. The project surveyor, Engr. Polly Alberto, explained that cadastral survey is necessary. It will help residents to get title of their lands smoothly. Engr Alberto emphasised that the assistance of the community and appreciation of the projects will be the key to the success in the implementation.
Regional Technical Director (RTD) for Lands, Oscar C. Dominguez informed that the survey will be the basis for the computation of the internal revenue allotment (IRA).
