Flexible, High-Volume Imagery Collection

X-band interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR) penetrates clouds, smoke, and haze to produce sharp, highly-detailed images – giving Intermap the ability to map anywhere in the world, day or night, regardless of weather or cloud-cover. Our proprietary X-band IFSAR technology is available either through our comprehensive NEXTMap® suite of products or via cost-effective custom collection if you require resolution better than satellites can provide.

Through controlled processes across the entire life cycle of X-band IFSAR collection, Intermap carefully manages data acquisition, data processing and editing, and delivery. All imagery is painstakingly reviewed and edited by the world’s greatest image processor: human eyes!
