Disaster technologies for cultural heritages such as buildings constructed by historical and traditional techniques and technologies are developed to protect against disasters in consideration of site, geographical and geological conditions.
Historical disaster research group is going to perform three researches (construction of database, restoration and extraction of the wisdom, expression methods and mapping using GIS).
Disaster Mitigation Planning in Cultural Heritage and Historical Cities We conduct the research activities required for the disaster mitigation planning in cultural heritage and historical cities, such as investigation methods, reasonable planning methods and evaluation methods of disaster mitigation planning.
This study group will develop "real-time high-performance monitoring and defense system" to defend cultural heritage against animal damages by raccoons, man-made disasters such as the theft of art industrial objects, the arson to history buildings.
This study group addresses policies to balance between tourism to cultural heritages including world heritages and disaster mitigation for cultural heritages, and policies for budget plans and donation enhancement for inheritance and conservation of cultural heritages.
This program aims: to support training programs for disaster management of cultural heritages, such as “the International Training Course on Disaster Risk Management of Cultural Heritage,” to develop GIS-aided methods to share the information on disaster management of cultural heritages; and to construct digital archives of Cultural Heritage and Historic Urban Environment.
