AW3D® Japan High-definition 3D map
Digital 3D maps realistically simulate ground surfaces of all of Japan
This service offers digital 3D maps with positional accuracy at a scale of 1:2,500 based on 50-cm-resolution 3D data. We offer ortho imagery, terrain data (DSM), and building 3D data for all of Japan, including remote islands. The latest data (to be updated once every two years) is always available. The maps can be used for a range of fields, including confirmation of the current situation, various analyses, and simulation applications.
Since the maps have horizontal and vertical positional accuracy at a scale of 1:2,500, maps can be overlapped without position misalignment between data and can serve as a base for map information. Terrain undulations are represented at 50 cm resolution, which is unprecedented for nationwide data. The maps can be used for high-precision coordinate and height measurements, quantity and gradient calculations (degree of incline), and simulation applications.
As the data is updated regularly, you can always find out the latest situation.
Using multiple satellites with excellent wide-area coverage, maps covering all of Japan including remote islands are created regularly. Compared to standard aerial survey data, higher frequency data can be obtained even for mountainous areas and remote islands.
Since we have an in-house production line, we can provide maps tailored to customers’ uses, including contour and vertical cross-section maps and format conversions.
