The software was highly praised by the officials of Philippine government and scholars, and the local newspapers had reported it for four successive days with UNESCO, China to Davao project watersheds as the title to show their appreciation for China s support.
The Image INFO software, developed jointly by our school with many units, such as the China Academy of Surveying and Mapping, was recognized and promoted by the UNESCO. It has been widely used by many developing countries such as Pakistan and the like. As we know, at this time, the Philippine government will put the software into the water resources development and management project in the Davao river basins of the Mindanao Island.
