DENVER – July 20, 2018 (TSX: IMP) (ITMSF:BB) – Intermap Technologies Corporation (“Intermap” or the “Company”) today announced the official release of the NEXTMap One™ terrain dataset. NEXTMap One offers precision, 3D geospatial data at an unprecedented 1-m resolution anywhere in the world.
NEXTMap One, which is available as either digital surface models (DSM) or bare earth digital terrain models (DTM), is produced using Intermap’s patented Intelligent Resolution Improvement System (IRIS™) and represents a technological advancement in global elevation data production. By combining the best features from multiple sensors, IRIS generates a seamless global dataset that is both highly accurate and spatially rich. Intermap uses high resolution satellite imagery along with multi-band radar, LiDAR and other datasets to produce NEXTMap One. This blend of data produces very high vertical accuracy of up to 1m (LE90), enabling new applications at a very affordable price. NEXTMap One is designed for continuous and real-time updates, with planned yearly data updates. Production of NEXTMap One began in the second quarter and full release of datasets for the entire continental United States will be released in August 2018.
