Abstract

This article reports a system generating information maps about the senior high schools which university students graduated from. In the maps, the number of students who graduated from the same senior high school, and the kind of entrance examinations they got through are illustrated. The main purpose of this system is to let do communication lively between senior high schools and universities, and also among the current students in the university. Because all senior high schools (about 6,100 schools) in Japan are plotted on a Japanese map, all the high school students who visited the university in an open campus can find one's senior high school. In that case, they can watch a map on the big screen of the PC by the iPad with moving their fingers in multi-touch fashion, or by a wireless remote controller of the Wii game machine. High school students generally show much interest in such operations.
