There fore, this study adopts aug mented-re al ity and mo bile three-di men sional graphics tech niques to construct a mo bile re lief work sys tem.

Based on the test ing re sults re gard ing es cap ing vic tims, through the mo bile re lief work system in con trast to a Google maps-based sys tem, re lief work ers more eas ily ar rive at the targeted con struc tions, and more rap idly seek the an tic i pated shel ters. In sum, this study is useful for sim i lar ap pli ca tions in di sas ter man age ment. Key words: aug mented-re al ity, di sas ter man age ment, geo graph ical in for ma tion sys tem, global po si tion ing sys tem, ra dio log i cal di sas ter, three-di men sional graphic
