1. Summary

Vertical Earth is a joint project with National Institute of Polar Research and Institute of Statistical Mathematics, and the purpose is to establish huge databases and the portal site for earth science information. Earth science people have accumulated large amount of data, but they are separately archived in each discipline. So the key is how to integrate those data and improve utility so that we can find hidden nature of the earth from the databases.
