In order to provide disaster-related information to the public, a portal site (Disaster-Related Information Clearing House: DiRICle) is proposed and created at Saga University (Saga Model). The model allows for information on satellite locations, the most recent satellite images, disaster-related events, satellite data retrieval, software tools and satellite image data browsing formatted in HDF with DIAL (NWGISS).
