Nagasaki Archive provides a lot of photos and experiences of survivors in 3D using with digital globe "Google Earth". You can see photos from the same angle they were taken 65 years ago, and also you click the portrait of survivors to read their experiences and wishes assosiated with the actual location they were exposed to A - bomb. (The experience stories of six people are translated into English now. Other stories are displayed in Japanese.)

In addition, we displays photos of the current Nagasaki so that you intuitively understand how this city subsequently achieved the reconstruction across time and space.

And also, the mapping project of thoughts on peace via E-mail and Twitter (http://en_nagasaki.mapping.jp/p/message-cloud.html) is held. Please e-mail us or tweet your thought on peace, and it will float on the sky of Nagasaki on 3D digital globe "Google Earth".
