Why is it important?

This article presents a method for detecting damaged buildings in the event of an earthquake using machine learning models and aerial photographs.


We initially created training data for machine learning models using aerial photographs captured around the town of Mashiki immediately after the main shock of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake. All buildings are classified into one of the four damage levels by visual interpretation.
