Earthquake Disaster Waste Disposal in Accordance with Local Features

Person in Charge of the Project : Takuya Okajima
"Earthquake disaster waste" generated by the Great East Japan Earthquake influenced disaster area and a victim of an accident. Disaster waste has to be treated immediately and efficiently because it's related to not only public health and security, but also city revival and economic recovery. However there are few local government, made a clear plan of disaster waste disposal. And there no academical proof for the "efficient treatment." We look at plan of earthquake disaster waste disposal again from these three points of view.
1. the waste emission rate
2. temporary places
3. waste treatment plant
We will propose a processing plan take regional characteristic into consideration, and new countermeasure for the earthquake disaster waste.

Accessibility assessment of collective relocation for post-disaster reconstruction - A case study of Kesennuma City, Japan -

Person in Charge of the Project : Takahiro Kanamori
The collective relocation is being carried out all over the tsunami stricken area in Tohoku after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake. While safety is much improved it is considered that the lifestyle of the migrated residents is to be affected. In this research, the effect on the lifestyle of migrants was analyzed in Kesennuma City by looking at walking accessibility of elderly people's physical burden. The accessibility to the nearest local facility from each collective relocation site was assessed.

Long Range Indoor Location Tracking System

Person in Charge of the Project : Ahmad Muzaffar Bin Baharudin
In this demonstration paper, we present a long range indoor location tracking system by leveraging RSSI on LoRa technology. Our system features two remarkable properties; namely deployment easiness and low power long range tracking. The indoor location of sensor nodes is estimated by using RSSI value. The location of sensor nodes is predicted by estimating the distance of sensor nodes from the gateway through the RSSI measurement. This system is useful for tracking moving objects in spacious indoor area such as hall, without using additional modules such as indoor GPS.

Improve of Daily Life and Bus Transportation by Digital Technique

Person in Charge of the Project : Yuichi Tsuchiya
EcoGIS Lab will make the application to solute our daily life and some disasters and use that practically. We use merit based thinking because we want to make the result more useful. Moreover, we should contribute to solution of one part of the disaster from view of IT through experience of making a lot value for the users of the applications. In addition, EcoGIS Lab display the electric bulletin board that tell the information about congestion of the buses by using technology of sensor. We want to remove phenomenon of send-off; this is about people who do not get on the bus because they want to sit down on the next bus. Thank you.

Disaster Risk Perception by NON-JAPANESE

Person in Charge of the Project : Ayaka Shibazaki
Exhibit the international comparison of risk perception survey. And conduct the questionnaire survey at the booth. The other survey that is incorporating promotion of consciousness of disaster prevention will be conducted too. To improve awareness and knowledge for earthquake and Tsunami disaster, Disaster Imagination Game will be taken place. This kind of the virtual experience is necessary to know how to act at the time of the disaster.


Person in Charge of the Project : Shun Nakayama
As it could be seen in the cases of the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Kumamoto earthquake, it takes a quite amount of time to get hold of the condition of the devastated areas. Mapping from the satellite data are done in times of disaster, however the time lapse of at least 2 days between the outbreak of the disaster and the completion of the mapping is remaining a serious issue. Consequently, drones are attracting attention. It is highly expected that capturing the disaster-struck areas by drones promptly will contribute to its recovery and research. In specific, it aims to gather the current condition of the roads and buildings in short amount of time, and create maps and analyze with GIS from those data in the near future.
