Many researchers have highlighted the necessity of disaster prevention countermeasures based on regional characteristics. However, in situations wherein disaster prevention measures are executed, often, no index (data) objectively indicates the risk of disaster considering regional characteristics. Therefore, disaster prevention measures are sometimes implemented without considering regional characteristics. As such, a way to extract and present disaster prevention countermeasures and examples that consider regional characteristics, including the risk of disaster are now needed. In the present study, we search for indices of the regional characteristics necessary to implement disaster prevention countermeasures and study a method to extract these countermeasures and examples based on the indices. In addition, the appropriateness of the method to extract the disaster prevention countermeasures and examples considering regional characteristics is verified through a questionnaire survey and interview.
