In recent years, countries around the world, including Japan, have witnessed the frequent occurrence of disasters such as torrential rains and flooding events arising as a result of global warming and earthquakes. This has raised the importance of taking prevention measures against various forms of disasters.In the event of such large-scale disasters, preventing and minimizing damage is of the utmost importance. This can be done through enhancing the voluntary disaster prevention capability of each region, and through self-help and mutual assistance.PASCO creates flood hazard maps, earthquake hazard maps, tsunami hazard maps, and other hazard maps that serve as basic data contributing to the enhancement of voluntary disaster prevention capability. In this sense, PASCO provides support for the creation of a safe and secure society for the people.
- Hazard Map Printer
- The Hazard Map Printer Reception System is a touch-panel system set up in government offices and other locations to provide disaster prevention information that should be disclosed to residents. Through the system, users instruct the screen to bring up disaster prevention information in the form of maps, which they can then bring back with them.
- Support for the Disclosure of Disaster Prevention Information
- PASCO provides support for the disclosure of various types of hazard maps through the Internet, using ASP technology. In addition, PASCO also provides support for the establishment of systems aimed at enhancing the daily, public awareness of disaster prevention. This is carried out in ways such as setting up large touch-panel monitors at the entrances of government offices for the display of hazard maps.
