A data set for 3D presentation of the LANDSAT image for any part of Japan and its viewer are provided by the SiPSE homepage via the Internet. The digital elevation model data covering Japan with 50 m resolution are embedded in the data set. In addition to the on-line system described in Japanese for the domestic use, off-line systems are developed with larger file size and other functions for research and international uses. The 3D images are compared with aerial and ground photographs especially with near-infrared mode.
