Hi! I would like to request information and copy of the following:

1) Highest Resolution available of Digital Elevation Data covering the National Capital Region

2) Maps and figures used in the Metro Manila Contingency Plan “Oplan Metro Yakal” in editable format such as GIS shape file. (Active Faults, Liquefaction, Earthquake-induced landslide, Fissures)

These following will be used on my Master Thesis. Currently, I am here in Japan studying MS Civil Engineering that is why I cannot be able to go in your office personally.

Hoping for your action.

Thank you so much!
