[Features of YAMAP]
YAMAP is an app with a map that allows you to confirm your current location by smartphone, even when you are outside your mobile service area.

[What problem does YAMAP solve?]
People sometimes hike into the mountains in the belief that they can always use their smartphone if they run into trouble or get lost, only to find that they are outside their provider’s service area and out of luck. We developed this app to address this situation, and to provide a solution to life threatening situations.

[Future development]
YAMAP will grow to become an interactive tourist map, which will introduce natural and cultural sites in an integrated manner. This will help promote extended-stay sightseeing visits, contributing to regional economies.
