Recently, studies on evacuation simulations have drawn up scenarios of evacuation under various situations. In this study, a system is proposed to show the results of evacuation simulations for disasters such as tsunamis and fires, with maps and serial images taken by MMS (Mobile Mapping System). The all-around view camera, angle meter, and GPS (Global Positioning System) antenna are mounted on a moving object, such as a car, in MMS. The serially-taken images can be related to GIS (Geographic Information System). Users can not only virtually experience the evacuation but also find the dangerous places by observing the 360-degree surrounding image.
