アチェ津波アーカイブには、これまでにリリースしてきたアーカイブズ・シリーズと同様のシステムデザインが施されています。デジタル地球儀「Google Earth」に、インド洋大津波に関する多元的な資料がマッピングされており、ユーザは、ズームイン・アウトやパン操作を用いて、デジタル地球儀上に再現されたバンダアチェの空を飛び回りながら、すべての資料を一覧することができます。これらの資料は京都大学地域研究統合情報センター、そしてシアクアラ大学大学院防災学研究科から提供されたものです。

"Aceh Tsunami Archive" was constructed with the same system design as our past Archives Series. The pluralistic datas about the Indian Ocean Tsunami are mapped on the digital globe "Google Earth". Users can look through all the data, flying in the sky in Banda Aceh reproduced on the digital globe with using zoom-in-out and pan operation. These data were produced by Center for Integrated Area Studies (CIAS), Kyoto University and Disaster Pevention Study Graduate Course, Graduate School of Universitas Syiah Kuala.


The students in Aceh unanimously said that the memories of the tsunami are fading away. That's something different from Japanese counterpart victims, which may reflect the different characteristic of each nationality. Yet these students are working hard so that their experience will be preserved for the future. We have also seen children playing around the powership and the stranded ship, which are remnants of the tsunami. These scenes are example of memories of the tsunami staying in everyday life, and knowing the condition of the effects and aftermath of the disaster may give clues to how we think about the future of Japan.

The process of recovering from a disaster is common to humanity. Some iconic monuments remain in areas affected by disasters, while townscapes are totally changed during the process of reconstruction; hence, the annual changes in townscapes are worth recording. The well-designed Aceh Tsunami Archive, which contains photographs and the voices of survivors, which has been housed in the Aceh Tsunami Mobile Museum since December 2004, will be a useful media to facilitate knowledge sharing on disaster recovery.

Aceh was once a prosperous cosmopolitan center, a node for the east-west trade that connected the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia. The region suffered a long isolation from the world during the thirty-year armed conflict but is now open once again. People from all over the world came to Aceh as part of the relief and recovery effort after the Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004. I hope that the Aceh Tsunami Archive will help strengthen the ties between the people of Aceh and the rest of the world.
