Mapping Earthquake Reconstruction in Tohoku, Japan

TPFsquare, a project by a group of volunteer professionals based in Tokyo, compiles a list of efforts to rebuild areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011 into single map. The project, which is available in English, seeks to aggregate various reconstruction projects in different locations so that they can be discussed, archived, mapped, curated and made available in one place.
