This paper introduces the Digital Typhoon project, whose goal is to establish the study of meteoinformatics and to develop emergency information systems in the domain of typhoon-related information. We first propose the models of emergency information systems and uses " flat-source model " as the model of emergency information systems, and explain the(More)
The spread of dengue fever depends mainly on the availability of favourable breeding sites for its mosquito vectors around human dwellings. To investigate if the various factors influencing breeding habitats can be mapped from space, dengue indices, such as the container index, the house index and the Breteau index, were calculated from Ministry of Public(More)
This paper introduces the application of data mining methods to the analysis and prediction of the typhoon. The testbed for this research is the typhoon image collection that we established, now archiving approximately 34,000 typhoon images created from satellite images of geostationary meteorological satellite GMS-5. We claim that this data collection is a(More)
Weather is a typical topic of daily conversations, so it is a natural idea to use social data to observe weather. Geotagging is a key to use social data for weather applications because weather is a highly localized phenomenon on the earth. Hence we developed software called GeoNLP for toponym-based geotagging, and applied it to Twitter data stream to find(More)
