In order to start the project, a meeting with community leaders in Barangay Hall of Barangay Carmen was performed to set plans and strategies in mapping landmarks such as rivers and creeks in their ancestral domain within their territories.

Among the identifies results were existing land cover of one of the ancestral domain areas that are mostly brushlands, there is also aSecondary/ Open forest near Mabanlascreek  and a dense forest with hard woods in the upper part of Talomo River.
