Improvement of Statistics GIS

Improved Statistics Geographical Information System (GIS) became fully operational on January 20th, 2015.
Under an initiative to promote"Open Data" by the government as a whole, the SBJ has made efforts to improve Statistics GIS. Statistics GIS is a system integrating the statistical data into the geographical information. The SBJ first released Statistics GIS of e-Stat in April 2008. In order to improve Statistics GIS on e-Stat, the function of jSTAT MAP, which enables retrieving data held by users and compiling statistics data in an arbitrarily designated area, was added to e-Stat in 2013. After trial operation, the system was put into full operation last January.
Corresponding to the full operation of the improved Statistics GIS, the SBJ also released an app for tablets, "Map De Toukei (Statistics through Map)", which enables you to use Statistics GIS on a tablet with both Android and iOS.

*For your reference, this improved Statistics GIS and "Map De Toukei" are currently available only in Japanese.
