DENVER -- Intermap Technologies Corp., today announced that Harris Corporation, a major supplier of commercial, government and defense communications systems and geospatial solutions, has extended its agreement to distribute Intermap's high-resolution digital elevation and orthorectified radar images.
Harris' ImageLinks Program is a market leader in providing products and technology that enable effective management and control of geospatial-based information. Using in-house proprietary technology for image processing, they solve problems that can be better explained and solved visually with images.

According to Scott Bennett, Director of Business Development, for Harris Corporation, ImageLinks Program, "Our ability to help customers solve complex problems, ranging from environmental monitoring for oil companies or training and simulation for the military, is largely reliant on highly accurate and uniform elevation data and imagery. Our partnership with Intermap has allowed us to expand our broad suite of data products to offer extremely reliable wide-area elevation data at an affordable price."
Commercial market applications for ImageLinks include environmental, forestry/agriculture, mining/oil/gas, telecommunications, and consumer-based businesses. Intermap's highly accurate and uniform 3D digital elevation models, collected as part of their NEXTMap® countrywide mapping program, are effectively enabling these types of applications worldwide.
