The plateau is long and narrow, has a length of about 20 km, and a width of about 5 to 7 km. It average height is about 151 m, with a highest peak which has a height of 310 m. - 30 M Taiwanese Dollar, 3 Years Project to do a throughout scientific investigation on Dadu Plateau ## Biological / Ecological Monitor - Led by NCHU Biologist Professor Hsing-Juh Lin - Ecological monitor times and frequency - Water area survey - 2016 Nanshi River (南勢溪) drainage survey 11 times - Terrestrial survey - In 2016, the team had completed 2 times, 7 sample stations, total 1950 cage-visit - In 2017, the team had completed 2 times, 6 sample stations, total 900 cage-visit - In 2018 (till September), total 4 month and 5 sample stations. ![](https://i.imgur.com/iILWorL.jpg) - Preservation strategies based on hard evidence and survey results ## Archeological Historical Investigation - Led by NCKU Archeologist and Archeology department director Professor Yi-Chang Liu - Field exploration and determine culture assets, active ethnic groups, and their acitivities' geographical boundaries of pre-historical, proto-historical and historical era ![](https://i.imgur.com/KBrPEf7.jpg) - Establish an integrated perspective connecting human activities and natural resources (and its limitation) ## Industrial Survey - Led by Tamkang University graduate institute of China studies Professor Jiann-jong Guo - From tourism, engineering to agriculture, all industries interview - Field survey and statistical data cross examination - Representing contemporary spatial land use survey and clarify its practical meaning ![](https://i.imgur.com/jpZnZIe.jpg) ![](https://i.imgur.com/0ZE9dBy.jpg) ## Aerial Photography and Video Production - Led by Director of Changhwa Environmental Protection Union Dr. Chia-Yang Tsai - Still Image Example: 牛罵頭 heritage site still photos ![](https://i.imgur.com/YGd4oUG.jpg) - Paranorma Photo Example: 牛罵頭 heritage site paranorma picture ![](https://i.imgur.com/L106hYN.jpg) - Video Example: 大楊油庫 1954 Sino-American Mutual Defense Treaty signed, Viet Nam war started and Taichung Ching Chuan Kang Airport (清泉崗機場), turned into US air carrier logistic base.
