"We are excited to see this valuable data used in a variety of applications that will benefit the citizens of the region which is expected to lead to further sales."

In 2005, Intermap has sold data from its NEXTMap archive of several different countries, including England, Wales, Scotland, the USA, and Indonesia. In 2006 Intermap plans to add data from Germany, Italy, Northern Ireland, and updates for Britain and the USA, to the NEXTMap database.
