During the 2004 Niigata Chuetsu Earthquake in Ojiya City, and 2007 Niigata Chuetsu-oki Earthquake in Kashiwazaki City, our research team built databases of building damage assessment results based on geographical coordinates and damage certification support systems (DCSS) for issuing damage certificates required by Japanesemunicipalities providing citizens with post-disaster recovery assistance. This paper discusses four major issues on databases and DCSS development, together with measures for solving these issues.
