DENVER, March 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Intermap (TSX: IMP), (ITMSF:BB), a
leading provider of geospatial solutions on-demand created from its
uniform, high-resolution 3D digital models of the earth's surface,
today announced that the Company was awarded a US $750,000 task order
from Dewberry Consultants LLC for the fourth phase expansion of its
previously announced airborne radar mapping services project in Alaska.
Additional contract funding for this project may occur at future dates.
Intermap is using its proprietary Interferometric Synthetic Aperture
Radar (IFSAR) technology to collect orthorectified radar imagery and
high resolution elevation data for an area of Alaska that has never
been mapped to this level of accuracy. The elevation data and imagery
collected by Intermap will be used in economic development,
infrastructure development and homeland security applications.
"The value of Intermap's Mapping Services capabilities continues to
increase in the marketplace as more public and private sector
organizations embrace the power of our end-to-end solutions
capabilities," said Todd Oseth, Intermap's president and CEO.
"Intermap's unique Mapping Services technology enables our customers to
address the area of interest that they want to map with pinpoint
accuracy. We then collect and deliver orthorectified radar imagery and
high resolution elevation data that either the customer or Intermap can
convert into a unified solution that derives the data-driven answers
they require. Intermap's complete solutions approach enables us to
provide a one-stop shop for all of our customer's geospatial needs."
Due to persistent cloud cover, traditional satellite and airborne
optical imagery is not available for large portions of Alaska.
Intermap's IFSAR radar mapping technology is not affected by cloud
cover which has enabled Intermap to consistently offer the most
reliable Mapping Services capabilities possible for this region.
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado - Intermap (www.intermap.com) is an industry leader in geospatial solutions on demand. Through its
powerful suite of 3DBI applications and proprietary development of
contiguous databases that fuse volumes of GIS data into a single
source, Intermap is able to provide location-based solutions for
customers in diverse markets around the world that solve today's
complex geospatial challenges.
