Reconstruction from 2011 tsunami

We have been building a better and more resilient future for communities affected by the March 2011 earthquake/tsunami, based on Kokusai Kogyo’s social infrastructure development experience.

Level National/Regional Level Local Level
Disaster risk reduction
  • -3D laser surveying (DMC, LP)
  • -Various simulations, ocean short-wave radar
  • -Emergency communication systems DRR education
  • -Slope/dam monitoring/management

3D laser scanning (tunnel)
  • -Property tax/cadastral surveys
  • -GIS to manage. waterworks, sewage, road register
  • -Hazard maps, DRR planning
  • -Spatial information, surveying data archive sales

Geographic information system (GIS)
Immediate aftermath
  • -Aerial photography (nadir, oblique), Photo interpretation/analysis
  • -Detailed tsunami field surveys, CG tsunami simulations ? rapid inundation analysis

  • -Local govt. administrative support
  • -Survey of collapsed/washed away houses

Local survey research
  • -Detailed disaster surveys, reconstruction planning
  • -Making maps for reconstruction planning
  • -Disaster waste surveys, making disposal plans
  • -Detailed disaster surveys, reconstruction planning

Waste disposal plan
  • -Survey of collapsed/washed away houses
