NTT DOCOMO launches app based on the eeGeo Map Platform
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.
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.

The fluid map rendering provides a more engaging environment to explore social media, such as NTT docomo’s geo-located Tweet functionality
Geocoded tweets can be browsed on the map, in real time.
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…
…yet eeGeo’s playful, video game animation capabilities shine through, as seen in this animate character’s walking direction playback.
