A local disaster preparedness map (My Map) is a handmade map for you and your family, and this will also be useful for your local community. This starts with knowing the terrain and ground features of the area where you live. The map will be created upon gathering information of the area during fieldwork. Using My Map, you will predict and estimate the damage during a disaster which will lead to knowing the area's important resources by considering countermeasures. In addition, through working on a map with several people, you will nurture the foundation of cooperation and reduce the damage of natural disasters.
* You can learn the characteristics of the terrain and the features of the locality and the history of disasters.
* By considering the human resources of the local community, you will grow to love the locality where you live.
* You can also protect yourself in other areas by applying the viewpoint of creation of My Map.
