ABSTRACT

Increased concerns of people over the possible explosion of Mt. Baekdu lay ground for the research on volcanoes in diverse academic fields, which suffered lack of volcano-related researches. Researches on volcanoes have difficulties due to the diverse eruption forms depending upon their own geological characteristics. It is quite necessary to cooperate with foreign experts due to the severe shortage of volcano scientists in Korea. We analyzed three websites including V-hub, GVM, and VOGRIPA, and interviewed many volcano experts to find the most relevant scientists to cooperate and lend their expertise to our program. Our ultimate research goal is that upcoming portal site should be different from existing ones and contributing site. V-hub is a community site among the volcano scientists; GVM is mainly for the standardization of data and researches, while VOGRIPA is for the database construction and expression of information. From the cartographical and GIS perspective, GVM site has only limited analytical tools and VOGRIPA has expression tool for the locations of volcanoes areas by web GIS. We suggest several items which Korean academic society may contribute volcano research portal site to advance to the next level in cartography and spatial information science.
