13 Oct, 2005 Denver, Colorado (October 13, 2005): Intermap Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of Intermap Technologies Corp. (IMP -TSX), announced today that it has signed a Basic Ordering Agreement with Michael Baker Jr., Inc. (Baker) providing a purchasing vehicle for Baker and its clients, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to buy Intermap's terrain elevation data products.
This Agreement is valid for one year, with two additional one-year periods that may be exercised by Baker. The Agreement provides Baker and its clients with the ability to acquire data covering areas as small as 100 sq. miles and as large as entire states, with commensurate reductions in unit rate.
"Our data products offer high-accuracy elevation data to support initiatives such as FEMA's Map Modernization program, which has the objective of improving the accuracy of the nation's flood hazard maps," commented Michael Bullock, Intermap's vice president of sales. "Following the recent devastation in the Gulf Coast region, several groups have expressed interest to Intermap regarding our post hurricane Katrina NEXTMap USA data. We are confident that our data can be of great assistance for reconstruction and planning efforts."
