Abstract

Objectives:

The objective of this study is to provide road centerline data for professionals of disaster medicine areas who are often beginners in GIS use.

Methods:

Newly developed vector tile format data were converted into shapefile format data, then were organized as second level medical districts to which medical professionals are accustomed.

Results:

Road centerline data in Japan is being prepared to release from Association for Promotion of Infrastructure Geospatial Information Distribution free of charge.

Conclusion:

Professionals of disaster medicine areas increased their accessibility of GIS. Logistic planning for evacuation activities and dispatching of rescue teams were improved.
