Hi. Thank you for accommodating my request. Ms. Serano from the Agricultural Land Management & Evaluation Division called me the other day to inform me about your online map library (http://www.bswm.maps.da.gov.ph/maps-library), which I already checked. I was not able to find any geologic map but I was able to download the available soil maps of the provinces encompassing the Pampanga River Basin (i.e., Tarlac, Pampanga, Bulacan, Aurora and Nueva Ecija). However, the shapefile for the Soil Map of Tarlac uploaded in your portal has an empty attribute table so there is no way for me to determine the soil type of each feature. In this regard, I would like to request for the said shapefile with attribute table. 

Thank you very much.
