Our Vision

Building a Safe and Comfortable Society

We have entered an age where the virtual world—as represented by the internet, communications, IT, and digitalization—is indelibly tied to the world around us, significantly impacting all aspects of our lives. At the same time, people, living things, society, nature, and nations remain strongly depending on “real-world” (geographical) conditions. At MiSol, we provide precision data-based geographic area analysis with the goal of helping to build a safe and comfortable society.


Our Mission

Building a Better Society
through Geographical Data Analysis

We conduct geographic analysis of real-world data to meet the needs of current-day and future needs of society by supporting improved site planning for various facilities and service centers. In particular, we are focusing our efforts on the priority fields of medical care, nursing care, and human welfare.

With the goal of advancing geographic information systems (GIS) via the internet across a broad range of business fields, we launched our Cloud ASP service “MiSol” as a business-focused GIS in February 2002. Since then, we have worked to upgrade, grow, and develop MiSol services.

Since our founding, we have devoted our efforts primarily on fields with the greatest need for area marketing analysis through business GIS. The medical field has been a particular focus; in our second year, we began a medical treatment zone analysis service. We continue to improve and upgrade application and data every year, and our services have now been implemented across a wide variety of fields and industries from medical consulting firms, accounting offices, pharmaceutical distributors, dispensing pharmacies, financial institutions, medical instrument distributors, housing companies, drugstores, and leasing companies. Furthermore, in the fields of nursing care and welfare for disabled persons, implementation of nursing care provision zone and welfare area analysis is progressing.

Not limited to the medical, nursing, and welfare fields, MiSol area marketing services have are also being employed as a powerful strategic tool to support corporate management in the food service, education, and retail fields, along with other industries involving expansion of physical stores.

We ask for your continued support and guidance now and in the future.
