Crustal Movement in Japan

Geospatial Information Authority of Japan(GSI) has established GNSS-based control stations throughout the country. About 1,300 control points have been set up as of today, and are distributed at an interval of about 20km. They are used for surveying, researches for earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. These points enable us to monitor crustal movement in real time.
System Maintenance Information
  Due to system maintenance, "Latest Information on Crustal Movement" and "Long-term Information on Crustal Movement" services will be unavailable until the end of March.
