Abstract

The J-SHIS seismic hazard information station is an openWeb systemas a public portal for sharing seismic hazard information for all those concerned with earthquake disaster prevention across Japan. Its further development is seen such as newly released J-SHIS Web APIs and J-SHIS applications. An overview and an objective of J-SHIS are shown as the leading platform of seismic hazard information. Furthermore, how J-SHIS services are developed for providing its data, and results of the application’s publications are described.
