Main Project

Data Integration and Analysis System (DIAS)

Data Integration and Analysis System (DIAS) started from 2006. The goals of DIAS are to collect and store earth observation data; to analyze such data in combination with socio-economic data, and convert data into information useful for crisis management with respect to global-scale environmental disasters, and other threats; and to make this information available within Japan and overseas.

The prototype of DIAS was developed in 2010. This project established the world’s first platform providing scientific information to evaluate the impact of climate change and plan its adaption measures on fields such as the water cycle and agriculture, which is based on the diverse and massive integrated data regarding earth observation, climate change prediction, etc.

Then, phase II of DIAS from 2011 made further advancement and expansion to apply DIAS as a social and public infrastructure. The current project of phase III has started since 2016 with the aim of its practical operation.
