Add maps provided by Geospatial Information Authority of Japan

ta-ka shared this idea 6 years ago

I would like to ask to support Digital Japan Maps and Photos provided by

Digital Japan Portal Web Site.

To develop a software that access to the Digital Japan Web System, a permission has to be obtained by sending an application form to GSI. If the permission is given, the software is allowed to access the server and the maps and the photos are available for user`s personal use without charge.

Unfortunately the application form is provided in Japanese and is accepted only by postal mail. If you agree to support the Digital Japan Maps in Locus, I`ll gladly help you to prepare the application form.

I look forward to your favorable response.

Thank you in advance.

Thank you for the positive reply!

Thank you for adding Japan GSI!

It is great having another map source for Japan.

The ones I have really been wanting are as used in -

Note that these are quite different than maps of Japan - vastly superior.

I can`t get Google Play to let me have the app for unknown reasons (I`m not in Japan?) but even if I could I would still like to have it in Locus where I could switch back & forth to maps I can actually read - or now, to & from GSI maps.
