DENVER, March 12 /CNW/ - Intermap Technologies Corp. (TSX:IMP)(AIM:IMAP)
today announced it has been awarded a contract for delivering high resolution
digital terrain model elevation data by the Santa Ana Watershed Project
Authority (SAWPA) for use by Riverside County. The agreement was secured
through the Company's data distribution partner, CyberCity 3D LLC.
Under the terms of the contract, Intermap will deliver high-resolution
5-meter posted / 1-meter vertical accuracy bare earth elevation data, 4-foot
contours, and Global Mapper software. The data currently resides in the
Company's NEXTMap(R) USA archive and will be delivered incrementally over the
next three months. The total value of the contract is $437,000.
The highly accurate 3D data will become the county's base map, enabling
it to precisely orthorectify aerial imagery and perform geospatial projects
throughout the county (one of the fastest-growing counties in the state of
California) for years to come. Additionally, the value derived to support
SAWPA initiatives within the county are vital as the organization works toward
protecting the water quality of the Santa Ana River watershed.
"We are pleased with Riverside County and SAWPA's decision to utilize our
NEXTMap(R) USA off-the-shelf data for such an important project," commented
Garth Lawrence, senior vice president of operations for Intermap Technologies.
"Using our high-quality digital elevation data is the most cost-effective
method of obtaining accurate wide-area elevation data available. This will
prove to be a tremendous benefit for the taxpayers of the region as the county
moves forward on solving the challenge of supplying sufficient high-quality
water for its growing population."
