truestar inc. point irregular
This dataset includes the point data of medical institutions, which is edited by truestar based on the railway data of Digital National Land Information provided by MLIT – Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
Medical institution data, provided by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, consist of information on ‘hospitals’, ‘(general) clinics’ and ‘dental clinics’ as defined in the Medical Care Act. These medical institutions include dormant facilities and company facilities, however excluding the ones that only provide mobile healthcare services.
This dataset holds location information as well as attribute information such as medical specialties and number of beds on approximately 180,000 medical facilities across Japan.Insufficient address information can be observed in some records of the original data; however, the information on the prefecture and city where medical institutions locate in have been independently added into the dataset by truestar.
Moreover, various tasks such as identifying the nearest healthcare facilities and calculating distances have been simplified through the utilization of analysis basing on spatial merging with other datasets provided in Snowflake Data Marketplace.
