ABSTRACT

This study aims to provide implications on natural disaster management through exploratory spatial data analysis(ESDA) on the damage of natural disasters occurred in local governments. A total of 226 basic local governments from 2006 to 2014 was set as subjects of analyses. The authors analyzed spatial distribution and hot spot on the six parameters: heavy snow, heavy rain, strong wide, wind waves, typhoons and the total damage. We found hot spots in Gangwon-do for total damage and heavy rain. Hot spots of heavy snow were found in the coastal areas of Gangwon-do, Gyeongsang-do, Jeolla-do and Chungcheong-do. Gyeongsang-do, Jeolla-do and Chungcheong-do were found to have hot spots for typhoons, strong wind and wind waves. The results indicate that different spatial patterns occur depending on types of natural disaster. It can be asserted that basic local governments must prepare themselves according to the corresponding type of natural disaster.
