The agreement will make Intermap's groundbreaking NEXTMap Britain elevation data available directly through the widely used Promap Web mapping service. NEXTMap Britain provides the most accurate nationwide height and contour data, which maps the rise and fall of the land across the whole of England, Wales and Scotland; the data has a wide variety of applications from flood mapping and 3D visualisation to pipeline routeing and mobile wireless network planning. 

Promap.co.uk is a pay-as-you-go Web service that is fast, flexible and convenient. This service is the chosen online source of current small and large scale digital mapping and aerial photography for over 16,000 registered users, including property professionals, environmental consultants and 50 percent of British architects. Landmark, in addition to its Promap service, is the number one source of environmental reports and searches, plus essential current and historical planning information for both the commercial and residential property sectors. 

"Promap is the UK's leading Web mapping portal for property and environmental consultants, and we are thrilled that NEXTMap Britain will be made available to the thousands of Promap users," said Eric DesRoche, vice president of Intermap's NEXTMap program. "Already the choice of many public sector organisations, through Promap, NEXTMap Britain becomes available to the commercial property sector as part of the most comprehensive range of UK geographic information datasets available via the Web," continued DesRoche.

INTERMAP ANNOUNCES US$2.6 MILLION IN NEW CONTRACTS FOR 3D DIGITAL MAP DATA

Posted by Rich Mohr

Jun 29, 2005 8:30:00 AM

Denver, Colorado (June 29, 2005): Intermap Technologies, Inc., (IMP-TSX) today announced new contracts for its digital topographic mapping data totaling more than US$2.6 million. 

Intermap, in conjunction with Aero-Metric, Inc., reported that the two companies have received a follow-on contract to map additional areas in the state of Alaska. Following from the previous successes with the Department of the Interior, the Intermap/Aero-Metric team has once again been selected to collect and process data for the National Petroleum Reserve Alaska (NPRA). This is the fifth contract from the Department of the Interior received over the past four years with Intermap's portion of this new contract valued at approximately US$907,000. 

"The unpredictable weather in the area makes Intermap's STAR technology an optimal solution for this mapping project," explained Michael Bullock, Intermap's vice president of sales and marketing. "We have the ability to not only map an area and produce high-resolution elevation models, but our technology is also uniquely suited to mapping areas like the northern slope of Alaska because we have the ability to acquire data through clouds and in adverse weather conditions. As with our past NPRA programs, this data will support the mapping and resource management activities of the USGS and the Bureau of Land Management."

In addition, Intermap reported that it received a follow-on contract to support the continued processing of elevation data from the NASA Shuttle Radar Topographic Mapping (SRTM) mission. The contract value to Intermap is approximately US$1.1M with the period of performance extending through December 2005. Intermap is utilizing its expertise in accurate digital mapping software and processing techniques to fill voids in the SRTM data with alternate sources of elevation information. In February 2000, NASA's Space Shuttle flew the SRTM mission, collecting digital elevation data of the majority of the planet. It is the first, near worldwide, radar coverage that provides for the creation of three-dimensional digital elevation model (DEM) maps. 

In addition, Intermap recentley sold a NEXTMap license valued at approximatley US$635,000 for digital map data from its NEXTMap database. The sale is anticipated to be complete prior to the end of the second quarter of 2005. 

"Intermap's NEXTMap business model is demonstrating it value to the marketplace," said Brian Bullock, CEO and President of Intermap. "Maping a region once then reselling the data numerous times to multiple customers allows our technology and derived products to be extremely price competitive, while providing very accurate off-the-shelf data options for various customers and applications."
