The highly accurate digital terrain data that maps the rise and fall of the British landscape is now available to the growing number of specialist users for purchase online. The Intermap Store is a sophisticated Web mapping portal for online purchasing of Intermap's off-the-shelf geospatial data that provides quick and convenient access to areas as small as 2 sq. km. for immediate download. 

The Intermap data library contains more than 1.8 million sq. km. of affordable high-resolution digital elevation and radar imagery data of many areas of the world, including the whole of Great Britain. In addition to Intermap's core products-digital surface models (first surface radar return), digital terrain models (bald earth) and orthorectified radar imagery-the Intermap Store also offers value-added products and software applications for purchase.

"We at Intermap are excited about the launch of the Intermap Store," remarked Eric DesRoche, vice president of NEXTMap. "This online ordering technology brings us closer to our goal of making geospatial data available to the mainstream public market at an affordable price. A large percentage of our customers were not being reached by the traditional direct and reseller sales channels-the online Intermap Store reaches everyone."

The Intermap Store is an advanced Web mapping application enabling both advanced and novice users to search the Intermap database and dynamically extract Intermap product data based on their own personal area of interest. Different map layers and an array of mapping tools make it simple to pinpoint and select the exact area of interest. Small customer orders will be delivered immediately over the Internet with larger orders being shipped on CD, DVD or hard drive media within days of order placement.
