AGC Data Supports Japan Relief Efforts

  25/03/2011
The US Army Geospatial Center (AGC) has compiled earthquake, water, and geology maps, as well as other datasets of Japan, and made them available via its public and public key infrastructure (PKI) websites in support of US quake and tsunami relief efforts.

 

 

Engineering Route Studies, Geo-referenced PDF maps, a water consumption calculator, and additional resources are available to the Department of Defense (DoD), federal agencies, and other organisations that utilise Common Access Cards.  Public access to the site is available at http://www.agc.army.mil/Japan/index.html. The centre also compiled data for personnel utilising the Defense Advanced Global Positioning System Receiver (DAGR) - a self-contained, hand-held GPS receiver that provides highly accurate position, navigation and timing information to users under all weather conditions.

 

"The AGC sends its deepest condolences to the people of Japan, particularly those who have lost loved ones in the earthquake and tsunamis," said Jeff Popp, AGC Current Operations chief.  "One aspect of our mission is to provide direct geospatial support to Army personnel.  As the Army's Knowledge Center for Geospatial Expertise, the AGC stands ready to support our Soldiers and their civilian counterparts as they help the Japanese recover from these tragic events."
