High-definition topographic data by SfM-MVS photogrammetry, UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) and TLS (Terrestrial Laser Scanning) have become widely available but still been limited to be used as learning materials for earth and planetary sciences. Here we demonstrate a class activity to enhance the "geographical imagination" using high-definition landscape data for elementary school students. 3D print models, as well as cut-and-built topographic models of the Satoyama landscape, were effectively used to assist the students to imagine and understand the geographical landscapes of their town.
