New Product Line Generates $1.2 Million Contract Award to Intermap Technologies

News Releases

11 May, 2009

DENVER: Intermap Technologies today announced that its Intermap Federal Services, Inc. subsidiary has received a USD $1.2 million contract to provide 3D digital elevation data and other map products for an international project. 

The Company is generating uniformly accurate elevation datasets under a new product line, TopoSAR, that serve a client's need for large and difficult to access geographic regions and countries around the globe. The TopoSAR product is derived from data acquired via a latest generation radar satellite and processed by existing Intermap-proprietary radargrammetry software. Combined with ISO-certified editing processes and production facilities, the Company is able to quickly deliver elevation data that is superior in accuracy and detail to other products derived from space platforms. 

“Our new TopoSAR product line gives Intermap the capability of meeting even more of the unique needs of our clients for elevation data around the world. Although the TopoSAR product does not have the accuracy or resolution of the products from our airborne systems, the TopoSAR products can be provided for areas where access by aircraft is not practical,” commented Brian Bullock, president & CEO for Intermap Technologies. “This sale further validates our decision to combine satellite data with our documented processing excellence and is a big plus for Intermap and the entire geospatial community. Not only can we deliver data for any part of the world, but the fact that it has been fully edited and processed by our internationally certified production facilities ensures the delivery of reliable data that can be used immediately.”
