Hitachi Solutions Supports Fast Assessment of Japan Earthquake and Tsunami with TerraGo GeoPDF Map Atlas

The GeoPDF atlas maps to be distributed are comprised of three layers: residential cadaster maps from before the earthquake; flood estimate data and satellite imaging from after the disaster.  Users will be able to confirm the condition of affected areas by comparing the different layers, as well as utilize geographical coordinates to add information and images to each location.  

The GeoPDF map atlas incorporates residential map data from “Zmap-TOWN II” by Zenrin Co., Ltd., flood estimate data by Pasco Corp. and satellite images by DigitalGlobe.

Hitachi Solutions will also be providing Nikon-Trimble mobile terminal “GPS Pathfinder SB” that includes software to write data on the GeoPDF map to permit on-site uploading of current georegistered data and images to the GeoPDF map atlas.  GeoPDF maps can support the inclusion of georegistered audio, video, notes, Web services and other intelligence.

Hitachi Solutions plans to expand support coverage in response to requests from local governments, provide add-on tools for integrating data on the GeoPDF maps using cloud services and continue to seek ways it can assist in reconstruction efforts.

In addition, Hitachi Solutions will supply Hitachi StarBoard® interactive whiteboards, which can be placed in disaster response headquarters, for example, to disseminate information and draft support efforts more efficiently. Learn More
