AiGIS is a 3D GIS designed for analysis on exploration data of irregular-shaped small bodies. The shape of a target body is represented by a polygon model, and geographic information is associated with polygons of the model. AiGIS can visualize and manipulate the shape model and map data on it.

These data are distributed as a sample. DO NOT use them in your actual scientific research projects.
See below for a detailed description of the dataset for AiGIS.
Preferences on directories for data, saved images, and saved plot data can be set in the Setting Pane at “File>Settings...” Now you don't need to edit the AiGIS preference file (AiGIS.properties).

AiGIS was originally developed as a research project by students at the University of Aizu.
The project is supported by JSPS KAKENHI Grant Number 17K05639, "FY2017-19 Coordination Funds for Promoting AeroSpace Utilizaiton MEXT, Japan", and a collaborative research between JLPEDA/JAXA and the University of Aizu.
Aizu Laboratory, Inc. supports development and maintenance of the software.
