RKF Engineering selects NEXTMap® precision 3D elevation data for efficient network planning
Offering subscriptions to fast, accurate, cloud-based solutions
DENVER – Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP; OTCQB: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in 3D geospatial products and intelligence solutions, today announced a contract with RKF Engineering Solutions, LLC (“RKF”) to supply NEXTMap® 3D elevation data through its cloud-based elevation data as a service subscription for telecommunications network planning.
RKF develops innovative engineering solutions for communication networks and satellite systems and provides critical analysis to enable spectrum reuse. RKF is integrating Intermap’s cloud-based services for 3D elevation and land classification data to conduct precision signal analysis for locations around the world. Intermap’s cloud-based solutions offer users rapid and easy-to-use online access to NEXTMap global terrain datasets that integrate into third-party software applications.
RKF will leverage the data provided through Intermap’s solution to assist various customers in conducting studies. For one major satellite operator, RKF is using NEXTMap in two stages to satisfy the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules for the application and licensing of numerous Earth station antennas. In the first stage, RKF will perform radio interference analysis for proposed locations. NEXTMap data is critical for this analysis, as buildings, vegetation and other obstructions are shown with up to 1-meter resolution. In stage two, additional analysis will be performed for final site selection and facilitate network build-out.
“Access to Intermap’s data allows us to provide our clients with the most accurate analysis,” said David Marshack, RKF’s Managing Director and COO. “Whether they’re looking to deploy Earth stations, cell towers or user equipment, knowing the environment allows us to help our clients plan their systems to best interoperate.”
“Our high-resolution NEXTMap data provides customers like RKF with insight into the terrain and surface obstacles to quickly and efficiently evaluate network design and optimal tower placement,” said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. “Our cloud services facilitate untethered logistics and collaborative autonomy with global data, available on demand. This integration provides our customers with agility, flexibility and interoperability, making 'bring your own device' a reality anywhere in the world.”
