Childcare workers at daycare centers in Japan face a growing workload.

This system has been credited with greatly streamlining work at childcare centers.

Noh theater is one of Japan’s oldest traditional performing arts, but today it has seen a decline in attendance and its fan base.

We recently began providing this solution commercially.

We developed a 3D map, AW3D that displays terrain around the world in five-meter resolution, which is the most accurate in the world, by utilizing data from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s advanced land observing satellite Daichi. This map is being used in a growing number of fields, including infrastructure development and disaster prevention.
