"Prefectural residents, parties concerned with reducing water disaster risks, and so forth can now obtain more accurate information."
Prefectural Government Official
The Ishikawa Prefecture Comprehensive River Information System, operated by the River Division of the Ishikawa prefectural government’s Civil Engineering Bureau, collects data on precipitation, water levels, and dams from observation posts in the prefecture as well as from the Meteorological Agency and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism, and communicates such information to prefectural residents and parties concerned with water disaster risk reduction via websites and email. This information is updated every ten minutes and displayed by area.
Fujitsu provided the application server ‘Interstage Application Server’, the database ‘Symfoware Server’, and the cluster software ‘Fujitsu Software PRIMECLUSTER’ as well as other middleware products to establish an advanced system to communicate information.
