Constructing COP of EOC at Niigata-ken Chuetsuoki Earthquake, 2007
Track: Disaster Management and Emergency Response
Author(s): Go URAKAWA

The Niigata Chuetsuoki Earthquake with a magnitude of 6.8 shook the Chuetsu region of Niigata prefecture on July 16th, 2007. In order to implement effective disaster response for victims, practitioners should share information to grasp the overall situation of damages and response of disaster countermeasure organizations in chronological order responsive. Generally, though documents of information submitted to the meetings are described by text or numeric value, it is difficult to grasp the overall situation for decision making. This paper does not only present practical efforts of Emergency Mapping Center to create “Common Operational Picture (COP)” to assist appropriate decision making but also discusses the effectiveness of maps using GIS as visualized information.
