This app is a viewer of flood hazard maps in Chugoku and Shikoku Japan which includes Tottori, Shimane, Okayama, Hiroshima, Yamaguchi, Tokushima, Kagawa, Ehime and Kochi prefecture. The app has all shelter information in Japan and floods in Chugoku and Shikoku. Therefore, it can search the nearest shelter and flood level at a current location or an arbitrary one.

■ How to Use

Please do not use this app without a rehearsal in time of a disaster, because the app was created for a desktop exercise. And be sure to check neighboring shelter information by a newsletter in your city.

The app shows an address and a flood level at a central location on a screen map. If the location has some floods, the app searches for the maximum flood level in the floods. Tap a shelter icon, it shows a balloon with shelter name and types. If you tap the balloon then, the app shows detailed information about the shelter.

There is a toolbar under the screen. The toolbar has seven functions: Show current location, Change map type, Search shelters, Shelter layer switch, Floods layer switch, Move and App information.
