Since urban areas, such as Cauayan City, are the hub of economic development and activity, there is a tendency for people and businesses to converge, with that, a risk analysis was done to analyze hazards for urban water infrastructures within the city. With the aid of GIS Software and gathered data, maps were generated for flood hazards with 5, 25, and 100 yr. return period, Analysis of liquefaction and ground shaking as well as drought hazard of urban water infrastructures in the City. Risk maps were generated in this study wherein water infrastructures such as drainage and water utilities located at the 4 barangays namely Cabaruan, Alicaocao, Turayong and Labinab were classified as high risk in flooding.

Attendance Management Methods using QR codes and face recognition technology are widely used in many aspects of people's lives; notably, during the pandemic where contactless systems were imposed. Hence, this paper aimed to development of an Enhanced Attendance Monitoring System. This system addressed the limitations of the existing Biometric Attendance Monitoring System of the Isabela State University Angadanan Campus which only store 60 employees in every device; it has no Leave Applications; and it has no auto-generation and auto-formatting of Daily Time Record report. The new system uses a camera and QR Code reader to log attendance electronically, and the attendance records are saved in a database. It can store multiple numbers of employees, process leave applications, manage remaining leave credits, and provide auto-generated Daily Time Records. Thus, the system reduces the requirement for fixed materials and employees to retain records. The system was subjected to end-users evaluation, and based on based on ISO 25010 standard, the quality of the software is found to be functional having rated with a general mean of 4.72 in the scale with a qualitative equivalent of ‘strongly agree’ on the different features of the system as it addresses the issues in the current attendance monitoring system of ISU.
