Recently-Released NEXTMap One™ Elevation Data Provided to Thai Officials in Support of Search and Rescue Efforts
DENVER, July 8, 2018 (TSX: IMP) (ITMSF:BB) - Intermap Technologies® (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a leading provider of geospatial intelligence solutions, congratulates first responders in their efforts to rescue the trapped Thai soccer team. The Company is saddened by the loss of retired Thai seal, Saman Gunan, during his mission to deliver oxygen to the boys. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the families and loved ones involved during this critical time.
In partnership with our local partners, Mappoint Asia Thailand Public Company, and Chiang Rai University, Intermap supplied its newly-released NEXTMap One, a 1-meter resolution elevation dataset, to the Thai Department of National Parks on June 27th. This high resolution elevation data was supplied within three hours, and used in conjunction with other sensors to identify elevation coordinates, prioritize potential drilling points, identify drainage paths, provide a detailed and inter-active 3D model of the area, and determine alternate routes into the caves to help rescue the boys. NEXTMap One, which was provided for free, is substantially more detailed than the existing elevation data available from commercial and government sources.
NEXTMap One is available worldwide as either digital surface models (DSM) or bare earth digital terrain models (DTM). It combines the best features from multiple sensors into a seamless global dataset, Intermap’s fourth generation global dataset, that is both highly accurate and spatially rich. In addition to the DSMs and DTMs, a number of associated analytic products are also available.
Elaborating on these tools, Patrick Blott, Intermap’s Chairman and CEO, said “Intermap was pleased to assist Thai officials in their search for the missing teens. We’d like to congratulate the international rescue operation, the Thai Navy SEALs and the emergency responders in Thailand on their success in locating the boys. We hope that our data and modeling efforts will help bring a fast resolution to this crisis without further loss of life. We are happy to be playing a role and using our analytics to help local University staff craft useful solutions in supporting the rescue efforts and wish for a speedy rescue and the group to return to friends and family as soon as possible.”
