(b)Other free digital maps
There are also other free digital maps created by the members of the @nifty FYAMAP. They digitized their favorite areas from the maps and uploaded to the library. Many famous mountain areas are going to be available. These data have 50m grid resolution and have almost comparable quality with the digital maps from the Geographic Survey Institute. Mr. Kisaku is trying to cover whole area of the north Alps in Japan.
