DENVER & Austin, TX: Intermap Technologies, Corp. (TSX: IMP.TO, AIM: IMAP.L) and Map Your World today announced a partnership where Map Your World, a regional distributor of online geospatial products and services for the southwest and southeast United States, has agreed to distribute Intermap's precise 3D digital elevation models and images.
Map Your World provides services ranging from single custom paper maps to digital maps and data, combined with training and support for using a GIS database. Map Your World's core client base includes landowners and GIS professionals in the oil and gas, pipeline, real estate, transportation, and public use markets.
According to Lee Lugge, owner of Map Your World, "Whether our customers need to assess a proposed drilling location or require countywide aerial imagery, Intermap's proven elevation models and geometric images will enable them to develop timely, accurate, and affordable geospatial solutions. But what is truly exciting is the fact that Intermap is collecting precision mapping data for entire states and countries, which will allow us to satisfy the wide-area mapping needs of more end users.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Intermap provides existing core datasets, including high-resolution digital terrain models, digital surface models, and orthorectified radar images, immediately available to Map Your World. Additional data, based on the Company's ongoing NEXTMap® countrywide mapping program, will be delivered as it becomes available.
“This is a great opportunity for both parties,” said Richard Smolenski, Intermap's vice president of sales. "Not only will Intermap be able to target a GIS-savvy audience with some of the most reliable and uniform elevation data available, our superior elevation models and images will also enable our new partner to expand the extraordinary suite of value-add products they already offer.”
