The base stations 32 and 34 are radio base stations that comply with mobile communication systems such as 3G, LTE, and 4G, for example. Communication areas 36 and 38 schematically represent communication areas provided by base stations 32 and 34. The radio waves transmitted by the base stations 32 and 34 may include notification information. The broadcast information may include base station identification information that can identify the base stations 32 and 34.

When the imaging device 102 captures a captured image, the measuring apparatus 100 captures the captured image, time information indicating the time of capturing, position information indicating the position of the image capturing unit, and electric field strength of the received radio wave at the position of the image capturing unit. May be stored in association with each other. The position information is, for example, GPS (Global Positioning System) information.

  The captured image is, for example, a still image. The imaging unit 102 may capture a still image every predetermined time. The measuring apparatus 100 may store time information, position information, and electric field strength in association with each of a plurality of still images.

  The measuring apparatus 100 is installed in a place where the user desires to perform fixed-point observation, for example. Moreover, the measuring apparatus 100 may be mounted on a moving body. For example, the measuring apparatus 100 is mounted on an automobile that travels for the purpose of measuring electric field strength at various locations. Moreover, the measuring apparatus 100 may be mounted on public transportation such as a train and a bus. Moreover, the measuring apparatus 100 may be carried around by a human.

  For example, when the measuring apparatus 100 moves from the communication area 36 to the communication area 38, the measurement apparatus 100 receives only the radio waves transmitted by the base station 32, the area that receives the radio waves transmitted by the base station 32 and the base station 34, and the base station This moves the area where only the radio waves transmitted by 34 are received. When receiving radio waves from each of a plurality of base stations, measuring apparatus 100 may measure the electric field strength of the received radio waves for each of the plurality of base stations.

  The measuring apparatus 100 may determine which base station transmitted the radio wave based on the base station identification information included in the received radio wave. The measuring apparatus 100 may store base station identification information in association with the captured image, time information, position information, and electric field strength. The captured image, time information, position information, electric field strength, and base station identification information stored in the measurement apparatus 100 may be referred to as measurement data.

  The image showing the electric field strength may be any form of image as long as it can express the difference in electric field strength. For example, the image indicating the electric field strength is a hatched image according to a hatching technique in which an arbitrary region is filled with an arbitrary pattern. The data generation device 200 may vary the density of an arbitrary pattern included in the hatched image according to the electric field strength. For example, the data generation device 200 may increase the density of an arbitrary pattern included in the hatched image as the electric field strength increases.

Then, the data generation device 200 may generate display data for displaying a plurality of images indicating the generated electric field strength superimposed on the captured image. The plurality of images indicating the electric field strength in a different manner for each of the plurality of base stations are, for example, a plurality of images having different hatching forms.
