DENVER & Munich, Germany: Germany's third largest wireless network provider will leverage the benefits of 3D digital mapping through an agreement announced by Intermap Technologies Corp. The Company has been awarded a contract to provide the E-Plus Group with high-quality 3D digital terrain maps covering all ofGermany and significant portions of surrounding border countries.
Through the use of advanced geospatial software applications, E-Plus can now determine precise antennae heights, accurate predictions of field strength and coverage, and optimized antennae locations and characteristics utilizing Intermap's 3D digital mapping data. The E-Plus Group has licensed digital terrain models (DTMs) from the Company's NEXTMap® Europe library that deliver a uniform vertical accuracy of 1 meter across the entire region. E-Plus is able to provide a higher level of service for their customers through advanced network planning with this high-degree of accuracy.
“Prior to the availability of our NEXTMap data,” states Manfred Krischke, managing director, Intermap Technologies GmbH, “European wireless telecommunications companies only had access to inconsistent and unreliable maps. Our high-grade elevation models now allow them to reliably support critical radio planning tools, such as network planning and other companywide GIS applications, which rely on the kind of vertically accurate data only available via our NEXTMap® Europe countrywide mapping program.”
Delivery of the DTMs to E-Plus from Intermap's library of off-the-shelf radar imagery and elevation models is scheduled to begin immediately. The DTMs are a fit-for-purpose product specifically de-resolved to a 25-meter post to meet the unique needs of the client.
