US Government agency places order for NEXTMap geospatial data.

Intermap Technologies : 25 September, 2007  (Application Story)
One meter accuracy geospatial data commissioned by US national geospatial intelligence agency for use in the gulf coast region of North America.
Intermap Technologies has announced that the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has awarded the Company's Intermap Federal Services subsidiary a $1.3 million contract to provide imagery and elevation data from Intermap's comprehensive NEXTMap USA geospatial dataset. The licensed data includes the Gulf Coast areas of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

All contract deliverables are in the Company's NEXTMap data library and will be delivered this month. Included in the high-resolution datasets are digital surface models depicting the earth's surface (including cultural features such as vegetation, buildings, and roads), digital terrain models displaying the bare earth (with all cultural features digitally removed), and orthorectified radar images (grayscale images that accentuate topographic features). The 1-meter vertically accurate and 5-meter posted digital elevation models (DEMs) will enable a variety of solutions within the agency, including, but not limited to, geographic planning and disaster preparedness during hurricane season.

"NGA was one of three US Government Agencies to make a commitment to purchase the entire NEXTMap USA database," commented Brian Bullock, president and CEO of Intermap Technologies. "This contract is the fourth purchase under an agreement that features substantial volume price discounts in return for the advance purchase commitment. Thus, the US Government enjoys the benefit of a commercial initiative to re-map the entire US at unprecedented accuracy and uniformity. To date, we have delivered $6.1 million worth of multi-client data licenses through our agreement with NGA."

As part of the Company's nationwide effort, 47% of the geography across the US has already been collected under the NEXTMap USA program. Collection will be completed in 2008 with final data processing for the entire country completed in 2009. The 7.9 million square kilometer NEXTMap USA dataset will include 320 billion elevation postings, over 5 trillion image pixels, and will become the largest nation mapped at this level of detail and accuracy.
