DENVER -- Intermap Technologies Corp. today announced that it has been awarded a new $2.2 million radar mapping contract. Under the agreement, the Company will collect and deliver 3D digital elevation models (DEMs) and orthorectified radar images (ORIs) utilizing Intermap's interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR) mapping technology. Data will be collected and delivered in 2007.
Included in the high-resolution datasets are digital surface models depicting the earth's surface (including cultural features such as vegetation, buildings, and roads), digital terrain models displaying the bare earth (with all cultural features digitally removed), and orthorectified radar images (grayscale images that accentuate topographic features) to be used to update existing maps and provide mapping data in regions where current map data does not exist.
“We continue to see a strong demand for our contract services due to our ability to collect and deliver a high-quality product on time and on budget,” commented Garth Lawrence, senior vice president of operations for Intermap Technologies. “Furthermore, our proven IFSAR data collection system continues to operate and deliver data that meets and exceeds our customer's expectations around the world.”
