This is in cooperation with research institutes including universities and international organizations.EORC developed a user-friendly web-based system, JAXA's (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) Public-health Monitor and Analysis Platform (JPMAP), which distributes satellite-derived environmental information, such as rainfall, shortwave radiation, soil moisture, normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), aerosol optical thickness (AOT), land surface temperature (LST), and altitude. The system was designed for users to download the data and utilize it without any additional data processing. Users can request data with a specific geographic location and time interactively via the website and then use the data for epidemiological analyses. EORC conducts research on the utilization of these satellite-derived environmental information for the mitigation of infectious diseases such as malaria or dengue fever through proactive prevention measures based on the result of epidemic risk analysis in collaboration with related agencies.
