In recent years, the frequent occurrence of natural disasters has become a serious social issue, making it extremely important for local residents to have accurate and timely access to disaster information that may affect their residential areas. This paper focuses on this challenge and reports an attempt to create a low-cost, locally operated web-based hazard map system for sharing regional information.
In contrast to conventional expensive systems, this system proposes a combination of open-source geographic information system tools and web technology to provide a low-cost and easy-to-use mechanism. It introduces a feature that allows local residents themselves to update and edit disaster preparedness materials and facility information easily, ensuring the accuracy of the information.
By using this system, access to disaster information becomes more convenient compared to traditional paper or PDF-based hazard maps, and it is expected to enhance overall disaster preparedness in the region.
