Results of terrain mapping, geotechnical  zoning and kinematic admissibility analyses indicate that  Antipolo and its vicinity is generally underlain by several  slope and terrain units that have  varying response to weathering, erosion , slope/foundation movement including static  and dynamic loading.  Among the slopes/terrain units that have been modeled are the Cherry Hills and Peace Village, Iglesia Quarry, Teresa Limestone, and Glendale Subdivision.

Modeling results reveal that a combination of geometrical, geological, geomorphological, hydrogeological, structural and geotechnical features of the slope have significant implications to slope and  foundation  design.
