Japan is planning to launch an experimental project in the new fiscal year from April that will help predict the amount of waste generated in a large-scale disaster and figure out the most efficient way to dispose of it.

It will be the first experiment utilizing a 3D city model — a project recreating a city in digital space. The program is aimed at developing a system to speed up waste disposal, which is considered key to quick recovery and rebuilding disaster-hit areas.
