Authors: Mieko Inoue
Awareness of importance for renewable energy has increased in Japan since the Great East Japan Earthquake, 2011. To promote the introduction of renewable energy, some limitations must be considered like land use or legal restrictions. Therefore, to collect these maps as geospatial information is necessary for future energy planning. This presentation is mainly focused on the case study of renewable energy maps by utilizing ArcGIS and its promotion and use in several Japanese local governments.
