Use environment
"Map Figures" can be used with browser software (Internet Explore,Netscape Navigator etc.).

At first, the page of multi OS correspondence which was able to be used with all computers which used JAVA was added though It established as a page of the Whip exclusive use of the Autodesk Co. because there was a fault which was not able to be used in non-Windows environment such as Unix・Macintosh.

It is possible to display it to the page for Whip at high speed compared with the page for JAVA. If it is general inspection, it is possible to use it enough on the page for multi OS for JAVA though a convenient function to use the keyboard is provided, too. Moreover, the page of portable personal computer (Palmtop,CE) is collected.

It confirms the operation by Windows 98 &IE4. Please obtain the latest version when it is not possible to use it by the browser of an old version.


Use purpose and usage
I think that It can use it for the following usages and the purposes.

As former figure of the chart of the guide in the large area and the sketch map when the drawing is made by CAD. (There is no CAD data in our homepage. CADデータが必要な場合は、ご連絡下さい)

As former figure for the cut-in illustration of the problem collection in the education organizations etc. such as the elementary school, the junior high school, the high school, prepschools, and universities. (It has been confirmed to be able to use it as a cut-in illustration of about 80% of nationwide university examination problem collection "Geography". )

As material for the large area grasp of the office and the group, etc. from which the branch is scattered in the whole country.

As location (location) map of nationwide cities, towns, and villages.

The freedom degree is high because the expansion and the reduction, etc. can be arbitrarily done on the screen in case of presentation and the cut-in illustration making.


Our data can be used as it is when the visual media making it.

It is possible to use it as banner banner1.gif for the explanation of top page and an animation material like banner2.gif.
The pixel data (lusterware data) bluntly becomes rough when expanding because It is composed of the group of the point. The vector data never roughens like the pixel data even if It expands because It is composed of the segment (vector) by which the point and the point are connected. However, the data size of the same content does not change into the vector data regardless of the size on the screen.

一度画面に表示された地図図形はハードディスクのCACHEフォルダー(※1)に is taken. Receive data can be diverted if there is "Knowledge and experience of plural kind of data conversion" as CAD figure. It is possible to change it freely according to CAD environment which uses the line kind and the line color, etc. used by "Map Figures".
※It becomes a size with huge amount of data when using it as CAD data. (※2)
Please note becoming amount with a huge time and telephone fee, etc. which hang to down-loading, too. Please report when CAD data is necessary.


Purport of offer of data of "Earth map Japan TM"
Former data of this "Map Figures" : about the homepage of Ministry of Construction Geographical Survey Institute though it is possible to understand by corresponding seeing the page. 「Version.
