CALL FOR DATA: Japan Sendai Earthquake Data Portal
Call for Geospatial Data Sharing through the Japan Sendai Earthquake Data Portal
In response to the 8.9 magnitude earthquake, which struck offshore Sendai, Japan on Mar 11th 2011, the Center for Geographic Analysis at Harvard University has launched the Japan Sendai Earthquake Data Portal (http://cegrp.cga.harvard.edu/japan/) to support the exchange of geospatial datasets for relief and reconstruction efforts. The portal works best with a Firefox browser.
If you have geospatial data about the earthquake impacted regions (such as satellite images, aerial photos, GIS data sets, or other data files that bear locational references) before or after the March 11th earthquake, please consider sharing them through this portal.
To contribute datasets to the portal, please email us to obtain the Secure FTP login information: chgis [AT] fas.harvard.edu.
You are also welcome to search our portal for related news and available data to download and use. All copyrights are retained by the original producers of the data, and downloads from this portal are for academic, non-commercial, relief and reconstruction efforts only.
