This Order, consisting of 11 sections, adopts the Digital Land Survey Data (DLSD) as a Standard Format for the Submission and Exchange of Survey Data in Digital Form under the Land Administration and Management System (LAMS). The use of DLSD aims to improve the services of all Regional Offices by: providing a standard format in the submission of survey data as input to LAMS; improving the processing time particularly in the submission and approval of survey returns; establishing a standard format for use in data exchange with other government agencies and other stakeholders requiring land information; serving as an interim phase towards paperless submission of survey returns for computerized verification and approval of surveys.

Implements: DENR Memorandum Circular No. 02 of 2012 creating the Land Management System (LAMS). (2012-06-13)

The Philippine Islands became a Spanish colony during the 16th century; they were ceded to the US in 1898 following the Spanish-American War. In 1935 the Philippines became a self-governing commonwealth. Manuel QUEZON was elected president and was tasked with preparing the country for independence after a 10-year transition. In 1942 the islands fell under Japanese occupation during World War II, and US forces and Filipinos fought together during 1944-45 to regain control. On 4 July 1946 the Republic of the Philippines attained its independence.
