GIS Policy in Japan and Efforts taken by National and Regional Planning Bureau, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport

National and Regional Planning Bureau Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MLIT)

To prepare a user environment for GIS and promote its use, it is essential to address many issues such as digitizing geographic information, preparing a compatible user environment, standardizing relevant technologies, developing efficient GIS applications, and providing technical instruction and information. For this purpose, it is extremely important that relevant organizations such as the national government, local authorities, public organizations, private companies, universities, etc., work together. Therefore, the national government established GIS Liaison Committee of Ministries and Agencies and established GIS Promotion Association of Government and Private Sectors to coordinate the work of relevant organizations and integrate policies.
