DENVER, Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - (TSX: IMP) (ITMSF:BB) – Intermap Technologies Corporation ("Intermap" or the "Company") announced today the Company has been awarded a further $800,000 expansion to its original 2017 U.S. Government task order for geospatial infrastructure services, providing the Company's radar foundation data including void-free first return and bald-Earth 5m elevation models (DSM, DTM) and high resolution orthorectified radar imagery (0.625m ORI). The task order was originally announced on May 25, 2017 and previously extended on September 11, 2017.
Separately, Intermap has further announced that it collected radar imagery and generated flood extents for Harris County during Hurricane Harvey, including for Houston, TX. Harris County is the third largest county in the United States, by population. Intermap flood imagery was produced within 48 hours of deployment, providing analysts with high resolution imagery unobstructed by clouds and severe weather. Intermap's imagery has been made available to the Federal agencies responsible for disaster monitoring and recovery.
"Intermap has developed a market leading flood software to support the government, our insurance clients, and the general public with effective underwriting, claims, and risk management," commented Patrick Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. "These hurricanes generate great suffering. Our clients mitigate the financial burdens caused by extreme rain and storm surge by using better and more accurate property-level risk assessments, which are only available through InsitePro."
A consumer-facing version of InsitePro, Intermap's proprietary flood risk assessment software, has been made available to the public on InsitePro's Houston Flood Risk website at https://harvey.intermap.com. Detailed flood extents will be available to all InsitePro clients in October.
