ERDAS Offers Japan Imagery as Public Service

March 15, 2011 -- Norcross, GA — ERDAS is providing access to datasets that illustrate the devastation in Japan after the 9.0 magnitude earthquake and the subsequent tsunami on March 11, 2011.  This data is being supplied free of charge as a community service. ERDAS will add new imagery, maps and vectors as they become available.

We now have pre- and post-earthquake images for Fukushima, which is the location of the compromised nuclear reactors, and Minamisanrikucho.  The pre-earthquake imagery consists of GeoEye-1, half-meter resolution data collected on November 15, 2009.  The post-earthquake imagery consists of IKONOS one-meter resolution data collected March 12, 2011.

To see the imagery, please visit

ERDAS’ thoughts are with the people of Japan at this difficult time.  We applaud the efforts of our colleagues and partners in the geospatial industry who are also providing free information, and those of the organizations who are supplying direct assistance to disaster victims. 

Google has established the website to help people determine the whereabouts of loved ones in Japan. To support the relief efforts, please contribute to the American Red Cross at
