DENVER: Intermap Technologies Corp. today announced that its Intermap Federal Services, Inc. subsidiary has received a USD $8.1 million contract to provide 3D digital elevation data and orthorectified radar imagery for an international project. Data will be used for topographic map production, 3D visualization, and natural resources management.
Using the Company's proprietary Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR) technology, Intermap will begin collecting and delivering radar mapping services for the client in 2008 and will complete the project in early 2009.
