Entire State coverage of Louisiana, Maine, New Mexico, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Texas recently added to the Company's NEXTMap USA Data Store
Monday, November 16, 2009
DENVER & San Antonio, TX (November 16, 2009) - Intermap Technologies, a leading worldwide 3D digital mapping company, today announced at the ASPRS / MAPPS 2009 Specialty Conference that high-resolution digital elevation models and images for the entire states of Louisiana, Maine, New Mexico, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Texas are commercially available. Collected as part of Intermap's NEXTMap USA nationwide mapping program, scheduled for completion by June 30, 2010, these datasets join other complete statewide coverage of Arizona, California, Florida, and Mississippi, along with partial state coverage areas — all of which are immediately available for purchase and include approximately 80% of the U.S.
"The availability of this data signals a fundamental shift for any organization needing access to reliable 3D mapping data," said Kevin Thomas, Intermap's vice president of marketing. "Gone are the days of having to accept the inaccuracies of SRTM or USGS data because it's the only data that's available, or paying exorbitant prices for inconsistent LiDAR data. NEXTMap's wide area coverage and accuracy now sets the new standard for geospatial base maps across the U.S. and Europe."
Data collected as part of Intermap's combined NEXTMap USA and Europe programs — border-to-border data for all of Western Europe is already on the shelf — continues to enable a wide variety of geospatial applications and prototyping endeavors for government and enterprise entities worldwide. Applications include, but are not limited to, route and site selection, cell tower placement, microwave link planning, transportation safety and fuel efficiency, water resource management, engineering planning, and 3D visualization.
Intermap's NEXTMap database includes digital surface models (DSMs) that include cultural features such as vegetation, buildings, and roads; digital terrain models (DTMs) with all cultural features digitally removed; and orthorectified radar images (ORIs) that accentuate topographic features — all with a vertical accuracy of 1 meter or better. The Company has also created value-added products such as contours, 3D road centerline geometries, and other high-resolution geospatial products as part of the program. NEXTMap data is currently available through the Company's direct sales team, online via www.TerrainOnDemand.com, or through Intermap's worldwide partner network.
