Intermap Technologies CEO Todd Oseth
Intermap Technologies has received a USD 12.4m contract to provide 3D digital elevation models and orthorectified radar images as part of the US National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) program to update an unnamed client’s current 1:50,000-scale base map.
Intermap will begin collecting the data in January 2011 via interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR) – considered the best option for collecting data in rugged areas obscured by prevailing cloud cover.
The geospatial data will be used for topographic map production to manage sustainable forestry projects and to support other local infrastructure needs.
Intermap will also provide training to the client on the creation of topographic maps.
Intermap Technologies chief executive Todd Oseth said the ability to quickly collect high-resolution elevation data in remote regions is a great asset to the firm.
“This contract demonstrates the confidence our customers have in our technical expertise, ability to execute and deliver, and mapping products we provide in the custom-collection mapping services industry,” he said.
The firm also said it received a USD 2m contract for high-resolution digital elevation models to a producer of natural gas in the United States.
