The Philippine Earth Data Resource Observation (PEDRO) Center installed the fi rst satellite tracking antenna in the country and established a Ground Receiving Station to access earthsurface information for disaster management, environmental monitoring, national security, urban mapping, rehabilitation assessment, and research purposes.

The PEDRO Center has stored, archived, and delivered 1300+ images to various agencies. The project serves as a platform for different agencies to access relevant earth surface data. All these efforts are targeted to make scientifi c and technological advancements in space exploration and in gathering earth surface information.
