In this study, point data from a phone book was used as geographical information that was regularly updated to obtain insights into changes in the urban industrial structure before and after a disaster. From these data, a quantitative approach was taken for regional trends in the affected areas before and after a disaster. This includes the population before and after a disaster and the demand for mental health support. Local governments also make new city plans for reconstruction; however, issues remain concerning their sustainability. This paper considers the viewpoints of disaster recovery planning, sustainability, and urban resilience while referring to previous studies.
