NTT DOCOMO launches app based on eeGeo’s 3D MapsBy Bart Denny on 4th April 2014 | Announcements
The NTT DOCOMO app, called 3D地図, was built by ZENRIN DataCom (ZDC) using eeGeo’s revolutionary 3D mapping technology.
The app showcases eeGeo’s powerful mapping platform, which allows mobile developers to use dynamic, immersive maps, and provide a significantly better user experience
These immersive 3D maps can be extensively customized, as seen by how the Japanese environment has been localized to show distinct regional variation.

Our maps can change style dynamically via themes. Themes can create distinct seasonal changes:
An area in Niigata Prefecture shows all four seasons in one scene.
These themes can also be tied to real-time data, for instance NTT DOCOMO’s display of current weather conditions and time of day.

Geocoded tweets can be browsed on the map, in real time.
The NTT 3D地図 App illustrates clearly the extensive benefits of the Eegeo Platform
The fluid map rendering provides a more engaging environment to explore social media, such as NTT docomo’s geo-located Tweet functionality
Point to point directions are shown as an overlay within the 3D world.
eeGeo maps excel at presenting location data in a clear, understandable way, increasing user orientation and recognition…
