Precision data strengthens flood resilience in West Africa
Partnership with Twinn bolsters global flood and climate risk management
DENVER – Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP; OTCQB: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in 3D geospatial products and intelligence solutions, today announced it will provide high-resolution digital terrain models (DTM) for a flood hazard modeling for a project in the Greater Lomé region in Togo. Intermap is working with its partner, Twinn by Royal HaskoningDHV, to support this critical flood modeling project and strengthen the community’s flood resilience and risk management.
Intermap’s NEXTMap® DTM provides critical terrain information for flood hazard modeling. The Greater Lomé region, situated along the Gulf of Guinea in West Africa, experiences frequent flooding during the rainy season and has endured devastating floods due to heavy rainfall. Accurate terrain data and flood maps for the city and surrounding area are essential for evaluating flood risk and implementing strategic mitigation measures to safeguard the community and its critical infrastructure.
“Our partnership with Twinn highlights Intermap’s dedication to providing top-tier geospatial solutions for critical projects worldwide,” said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. “Our high-resolution precision data supports the flood hazard modeling project in Lomé, strengthening the region’s resilience against natural disasters.”
“We are delighted to support Intermap in providing high-resolution world class hazard data,” said Mark Nunns, Global Commercial Director, Climate Resilience, Twinn by Royal HaskoningDHV. “Supporting initiatives like this underpins our core belief of enhancing society together.”
Intermap’s NEXTMap digital terrain data reinforces Twinn’s technology to support better decision making for flood and climate risk management around the globe. Twinn provides climate risk intelligence across 19 hazards, including flooding, drought, wildfires, earthquakes and volcanoes.
