Outline

This system collects and transmits real-time data on the water levels of rivers, rainfall and climate data and transmits it to residents, water disaster preventers and river managers via PCs and smartphones. The data can be combined with various other information such as numerical data, warnings, alerts, and camera footage from rivers to give a more accurate understanding of potential incoming disasters. The system has been used in many ways, including urging residents to voluntarily evacuate, and by municipalities to release evacuation alerts.
