(Presentation of the results)

Eight students from the University of Aizu, based on the explanation of the current situation in Oto-machi, Aizuwakamatsu City by the Community Development Division of Aizuwakamatsu City, set up issues and development themes.
And With advice from TIS and the Community Development Division, we developed an application for mapping direct sales points using map information and an application (Safety Hiromeru-kun) to warn people of dangerous places such as landslides and damage caused by birds and animals.

<Comments from students who participated in the program>
・I could feel the sense of accomplishment when I created the app!
・I was able to experience the fun of team development!

In the future, Aizu Wakamatsu City Community Development Division, TIS, and participating students are considering continuing to develop the application in order to solve local issues and further improve students' practical skills.
