Intermap's geospatial package complements ESRI's small government ELA program
Tuesday, August 11, 2009
DENVER — Intermap Technologies today announced they will be providing their complete line of highly accurate digital elevation models (DEM) and precise orthorectified radar images (ORI) via a Small Municipal and County Government Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) in concert with the highly successful ESRI program of the same name.
The ESRI Small Municipal and County Government ELA program helps local governments better serve their citizens with functionality to perform emergency response and preparedness, permitting and inspection, incident/crime analysis, hazardous materials inventory, planning, and many other vital government functions and services.
Many smaller governments do not have the financial resources or personnel to leverage the GIS software and data that could protect lives and property, while saving time and money. Through the ELA program, local governments gain access to a central, enterprise-wide resource that can provide seamless geocoding, mapping, and routing functionality across all of the local government's departments and agencies.
Intermap's rollout of a parallel licensing package allows enterprise-wide access to Intermap's uniformly accurate 3D digital elevation models and orthorectified radar images for a period of three years.
The launch of Intermap's ELA package using NEXTMap datasets gives small city and county geospatial professionals immediate access to consistently reliable 3D NEXTMap data, thereby allowing them to perform wide area spatial analysis in a more timely and cost efficient manner.
"Intermap and ESRI continue to work together to bring geospatial solutions to governments when they need it most," said Kevin Thomas, vice president of marketing for Intermap. "The most exciting aspect of this collaboration is the ability to quickly, easily, and affordably provide local governments with highly accurate and up-to-date terrain models, which enables better overall community planning and preparedness in the event of a crisis."
The combined ELA efforts provide access to the spatial technology that local governments need with a straightforward three-tiered pricing schedule. The program is designed for governments in the United States that serve populations of 100,000 or less.
