Emergency Mapping Team Supplies Resources for Japan Disaster

More than a dozen organizations have come together to provide mapping support for the Japan earthquake and tsunami disaster. The group, known as the Emergency Mapping Team (EMT), is supplying maps and web services that are being used to make better decisions for relief and recovery efforts related to the recent Tōhoku, Japan, earthquake and resultant tsunami. EMT-produced maps are enhanced with information generated by disaster management experts that helps supply updated status reports on the overall situation. As new maps and services are created, they are made available online at the EMT website. Several organizations are involved with EMT: Esri, ESRI Japan Corporation, Honda Motor, Pioneer, and more.
