There are concerns about a large-scale earthquake caused by the Nankai Trough, which is a submarine trough located in the southwest region of Japan. The purpose of this study is to reduce damage due to the earthquake fires by self-help and mutual assistance. A cloud system has been developed in this paper to support the planning of the disaster management plan by residents and to share the plan among them. The feature of this system is that it can add geospatial information brought by the residents to open data provided by governments. As a result, it will be a community-based planning support system that makes it possible to set evacuation routes more intuitively, for example. In addition, a function to simulate the fire resistance performance by greening was implemented to be utilized by the community also in peacetime
