By Ritsu Katayama, Masato Shozi and Yoshihide Tokiya

Abstract

A Hanshin large earthquake which had dropped Japan to fear on January 17th 5:46AM eight years ago of 1995 occurred. Kobe City caused a spreading fire in the large range from coexistence of the wooden building in the overcrowdedness urban area and the cause of a narrow road due to this large earthquake. Authors have already understood the danger of a spreading fire increases from the research aimed at Kobe City in the district where which the NDVI(Vegetation Index) is low, and the UI(Urban Index) is high from the remote sensing analysis. It paid attention to the Tokyo Bay shore district in the metropolitan area where the danger of the earthquake was shouted to apply the remote sensing technology to the city planning field widely, and the consideration the remote sensing analysis's whether the analysis of the city situation being enabled by the accuracy of which extent was tried through the overlapping analysis with Geographical Information System based on the existing research result of understanding from Kobe City. The effectiveness of an analytical technology was considered by verifying the analysis scale to not only the city level (Chiba Prefecture Urayasu City and Kawasaki City Nakahara Ward) but also districts and the town even number fields in detail and using the TM data and the IKONOS data. As a result, to apply the remote sensing technology to the urban disaster prevention project, it reports on the consideration whether what possibility and the problem and the proposal exist. 1.
