Abstract

Disaster victims, who cannot make progress in their life recovery by themselves, need to be supported generously by local government. However, there is no information management system for the progress of their life recovery process in order to identify the individual needs of victims. In the first step of this research, we designed and developed Victims Master Database which stored the situation of progress of victims’ life recovery process. This master database is developed by the integration of 5 databases; two of those are Residents’ Ledger and Fixed Asset Tax Rolls which are used in daily routine business, and the others are databases for granted certification of building damage degree, relief programs management and public temporary housing management which are constructed after the disaster. In this integration, however, it is unable to connect together simply because there is no relational key in each database. Against this issue, we applied GeoWrap method which can connect databases in GIS by the spatial proximity between pieces of information. In the second step, we developed the information management system which can ascertain victims’ life recovery status and visualize it in spatial. By using this system, responders developed common operational pictures of victims’ status, and provide generous support for victims with special needs effectively.
