DENVER, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - 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.
