Tuesday, June 9, 2009
DENVER: Intermap Technologies announced that it has been named by Oracle Corporation, during the 2009 Oracle Spatial User Conference, as this year's winner of the annual Oracle Spatial Excellence Innovator Award for innovation in the use of geospatial technology.
Intermap used Oracle Spatial to create a consistent, secure storage environment that has reduced error of data loss and corruption, while greatly improving the manageability and security of Intermap's spatial data assets. The Company's spatially enabled database infrastructure has also created a solid, highly reliable foundation for future integration with other enterprise systems.
“This is great recognition for the outstanding results of our technical teams and the use of Oracle Spatial as a core element in the storage and management of our massive digital mapping database,” said Mark Frank, Intermap's senior vice president of technology. “Our digital map data management production workflow merited this recognition and serves as an exemplary approach for other mapping organizations. Over the past year, we've ingested and managed more than 13 terabytes of digital mapping data as part of our worldwide NEXTMap 3D mapping program.”
