“Vitalizing Japan through Area Communication Design”
Map Marketing applies its GIS-based IT to help all kinds of local businesses (e.g. Stores, small schools) to grow in the regions where they are located. Map Marketing provides a mechanism that “conveys the information the customer wishes to disseminate to the optimum area through the optimum media” (Area Communication Design). Map Marketing endeavors to achieve local vitalization, vitalization of small to medium-sized retails businesses, vitalization of shopping districts and commercial facilities, vitalization of all types of local industries and, finally, vitalization of Japan (vitalization of society and “the world”) through the dissemination of “Area Communication Design” throughout society.

What is Area Marketing and Commercial Regional Analysis?
Put simply, this term refers to the process of investigation to identify local characteristics such as “areas with an abundance of young families” or “areas with a growing population.”
By identifying regional characteristics, Area Marketing and Commercial Regional analysis makes it possible to make geographical judgments that will prove useful when opening a new store or distributing advertisements. If, for example, a person wished to open a family-oriented store, the best choice of location would probably be a region where there are a lot of families. Again, if, for example, a business wanted to distribute advertisements for luxury cars, the logical choice would be a region characterized by a large number of high annual-income households.
What is GIS?
GIS is the acronym for Geographic (Map) Information System.
There are many types of GIS and any digital system that shows information of one kind or another on a map falls into the category of GIS. A typical example familiar to everyone is the car navigation system. Map Marketing’s TerraMap Series is an area marketing GIS or, in other words, a GIS used exclusively for area marketing and commercial regional analysis. By collecting statistical data for each area (administrative divisions of Japan, municipalities, larger sections of villages, town and street names and grids) from sources such as the national census, for example, this software facilitates identification of regional characteristics.
