DENVER & Tel Aviv, Israel — Intermap Technologies, a leading worldwide 3D digital mapping company, and Eternix, a software company providing high-performance visualization solutions, announced today the compatibility between Intermap's NEXTMap DEM data and Eternix's Blaze View visualization solution, enabling real-time presentation of any 2D imagery in 3D. Raster images, vector data, and video can be accurately placed on top of Intermap's 3D terrain models and presented in Eternix Blaze View on-the-fly without the need for pre-processing. Combining the capabilities of the industry's new standard for geospatial base maps from Intermap and Eternix's sophisticated software brings geospatial users a step closer to the long-awaited world of real-time 3D visualization.
"Blaze View's pioneering capabilities immediately enable users to create 3D visualization assets using the best geospatial base map in Western Europe and the U.S.," stated Adam Denman, Intermap Technologies vice president & general manager, Europe. "This level of interoperability takes 3D visualization to the next level. Intermap digital elevation models solve a host of business needs worldwide. The ability to easily create visualization assets using highly accurate DEMS to demonstrate solutions to their customers is yet another example of how companies are leveraging the tremendous value of our NEXTMap database."
"NEXTMap digital elevation models provide the quality required to make accurate 3D applications a widespread reality in the geospatial visualization domain" said Raviv Brueller, chief executive officer at Eternix. "The use of an accurate basemap enables our software to generate a realistic visualization rendering on-the-fly."
The companies will unveil their compatibility demonstration in the upcoming GEOINT 2009 symposium in San-Antonio, TX, October 18 to 21. For a fly-through sample of NEXTMap digital elevation data recorded in Blaze View, follow visit: http://www.eternix.co.il/downloads/eternix.terrain.overlay.wmv
