The CBMS Act mandated geotagging activities in all cities and municipalities. The Act defines geotagging as a process of adding metadata about government projects, households/housing units, service facilities, and natural resources to various media and of uploading to a web-based application to enable the government stakeholders to check the progress of government projects in real time.
For this purpose, the CBMS Form 7 (Municipal/City LGU Data Sheet) collects information on the infrastructure and non-infrastructure government projects, specifically on the project name or title, budget allocated/cost incurred, status and geographic location.
Intended respondents of the CBMS Form 7 are the city/municipal planning officers and other concerned personnel in the city/municipal LGUs. This form is being administered along with the request of the GIS or map files from the city/municipal LGUs in order to provide information needed for the geotagging exercise in the CBMS implementation in accordance to the provisions in the law.
The sections that follow provide the operational definitions and descriptions of the terms and concepts included in the CBMS Form 7 that will help accomplish the CBMS Form.
Government projects can be categorized as infrastructure or non-infrastructure. Infrastructure projects include construction, improvement, and rehabilitation or restoration of roads and bridges, railways, airports, seaports, communication facilities, irrigation, flood control and drainage, water supply, sanitation and sewerage systems, shore protection, energy/power and electrification facilities, national buildings, school buildings, hospital buildings, and other related construction projects that form part of the government capital investment. On the other hand, non-infrastructure projects include agricultural, industrial, social, environmental, tourism, reclamation, and all other types of government projects not otherwise classified as infrastructure.
Please take note to include all government projects from 01 July 2019 to 30 June 2022.
1. Title of government project
Indicate the title of the government project. Spell out all acronyms or abbreviations. The title of the government project can be seen in the project documents, annual accomplishment reports, project signages.
List all government projects that were planned, funded, started/implemented from 01 July 2019 to 30 June 2022, from oldest to newest. Include all infrastructure and non-infrastructure government projects that were implemented by the following:
- City/municipal LGU
- Provincial LGU
- Office of the Congressman/Congresswoman
- National government agency (e.g., Department of Health, Department of Public Works and Highways, Department of Social Welfare and Development, etc.)
- Government-Owned and Controlled Corporation
Provide the best accurate description for the location where the government project is implemented/will be implemented. Indicate the street name, purok/sitio/village/zone, and/or barangay. If applicable, you may record the unit/floor number, building number/ name, block/lot number.
This information will be crucial for the mappers to geotag the government project.
3. Type of government project
Identify whether the project is an infrastructure or a non-infrastructure project. Refer to the definitions provided above.
Government buildings and infrastructure projects may cater to the needs of city/municipal residents and other persons within the area particularly on health, education, service, agriculture, water, garbage and waste disposal, tourism, among others. Other infrastructure projects, however, are not necessarily in the form of building structure. Detailed descriptions of these infrastructure projects are as follows:
- Road (Road Concreting, Farm-to-Market Road) refers to any kind of road project.
- Bridge (Footbridge, Hanging Bridge, Footpath) is a structure built to span a physical obstacle without blocking the way underneath. It is constructed for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle, which is usually something that is otherwise difficult or impossible to cross.
- Drainage (Irrigation,Canal, Downspouts and Gutter Systems) is the natural or artificial removal of a surface's water and subsurface water from an area with excess water. The internal drainage of most agricultural soils is good enough to prevent severe waterlogging, but many soils need artificial drainage to improve production or to manage water supplies.
- Railway (Normal Rail Track, High Speed Rail Track, Subway Track) is a route between two places along which trains travel on steel rails.
- Dam (Gravity, Embankment, Hydropower, Coffer, Diversion) a barrier constructed to hold back water and raise its level, forming a reservoir used to generate electricity or as a water supply.
- Transport Terminal (Tricycle, Bus, Jeepney Terminals or Public Terminal, Stopover) means premise used for the transfer of goods primarily involving loading and unloading of freight-carrying trucks, and accordingly, involving the storing, parking, servicing and dispatching of freight- carrying trucks.
- Airport (Local, Domestic and International Airport) refers to a port for the takeoff, landing, and maintenance of planes, with facilities for passengers.
- Seaport (Fishports, RoRo Terminal) is a port accessible to seacoast and provides accommodation for seagoing vessels.
- Electrification Project (Streetlights, Generator Set, Lamp Post) is the process of powering by electricity and, in many contexts, the introduction of such power by changing over from an earlier power source. The broad meaning of the term, such as in the history of technology, economic history, and economic development, usually applies to a region or national economy.
- Hazard Protection/Control (Slope Protection, Flood Control, Seawall) the act or technique of controlling river flow with dams, dikes, artificial channels, etc., so as to minimize the occurrence of floods.
- Waiting Shed (Bus, Tricycle, Jeepney Stop) is a small structure built mostly alongside roads that serves as a place for people waiting for a ride. It is important to have a waiting shed on roadsides for commuters waiting for jeepneys, buses or any public vehicles. It can provide shelter from rain or from very sunny weather.

Other online materials discussing to the project can be be put in the Remarks. Just enter the URL of the video, website or document.
B. Natural Resources
The term is specified to include forest and grazing lands, mineral resources including those in reservation and watershed areas, and lands of the public domain.
Forest lands include public forest, permanent forest or forest reserves, and forest reservations.
Grazing land refers to that portion of the public domain which has been set aside, in view of the suitability of its topography and vegetation, for the raising of livestock.
Watershed is a land area drained by a stream or fixed body of water and its tributaries having a common outlet for surface run-off. Some that may be included are forest, river, and mangrove.
Public domain land refers to alienable and disposable lands classified and determined not to be needed for forest purpose. Classifications of public domain land includes agricultural, industrial or commercial, residential, resettlement and timber or forest.
Mineral resource is any concentration of minerals/rocks with potential economic value. Minerals refer to all naturally occurring inorganic substance in solid, gas, liquid, or any intermediate state excluding energy materials such as coal, petroleum, natural gas, radioactive materials, and geothermal energy.
Government projects can be categorized as infrastructure or non-infrastructure.
