DENVER -- Intermap (TSX:IMP.TO), a leading provider of location-based information (LBI) solutions, reports that its NEXTMap data is being utilized for several critical statewide geospatial applications. This follows South Dakota’s licensing of Intermap’s NEXTMap South Dakota database during the third quarter of this year.
“It’s critical that states have access to the most geospatially accurate 3D terrain data available for strategic planning purposes,” said Todd Oseth, Intermap president and CEO. “With Intermap’s NEXTMap database, we’re able to offer state-wide licenses for the most consistently accurate 3D imagery and elevation data to every state in the nation at extremely affordable prices.”
