DENVER: Intermap Technologies today announced that it received a USD $12.4 million contract to provide 3D digital elevation models and orthorectified radar images as part of a National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) program to update the client’s current 1:50,000-scale base map. The geospatial data will be used for topographic map production to manage sustainable forestry projects and to support other local infrastructure needs.
Under the terms of the agreement, Intermap will begin collecting the data in January 2011 via interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR). Prior to data delivery, Intermap will also provide training to the client on the creation of topographic maps.. The Company’s airborne IFSAR data collection system was chosen as the best option for collecting data in rugged areas obscured by prevailing cloud cover.
“Our ability to quickly collect high-resolution elevation data and images in remote regions of the world continues to provide value for our geospatial customers,” commented Todd Oseth, president & CEO for Intermap Technologies. “This contract demonstrates the confidence our customers have in our technical expertise, ability to execute and deliver, and mapping products we provide in the custom-collection mapping services industry.”
