Spatial information technology will be one of the key components to innovate future information society and trigger high value-added future industry.

The ability to filter out useless information which was called “Obsolete knowledge” by Alvin Toffler will be the key component of a future society.

A method being recognized to solve the problem of information flood is to associate existing information with location, called spatialization, by which it is expected that efficient exchange and use of information can be realized.
This type of movement has been started by leading companies and government organizations. Examples of the base technology to spatialize the information include Google’s Google Earth, Microsoft’s Virtual Earth, and the Digital Earth project led by Al Gore, the US vice president.

Spatial information technology has been considered as one of the key technologies to make the quality of information improved, and as the field to bring abundant resources. The venture of intelligent land information projects will make the future information society innovated, thereafter generating national wealth.
