NEXTMap One™ enabling airport infrastructure planning
Supporting digital infrastructure with orthorectification as-a-service
DENVER, March 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP) (OTCQX: ITMSF) ("Intermap" or the "Company"), a global leader in geospatial intelligence solutions, today announced that INFRAWAY, an engineering company in Brazil, is leveraging Intermap's NEXTMap One™ digital terrain model (DTM) for airport infrastructure planning.
INFRAWAY is developing airport infrastructure studies for the government of Brazil. In the planning process, high-quality elevation data is essential. Intermap's NEXTMap One DTM data empowers INFRAWAY to assess key areas that need improvement inside the airport land areas. Elevation data supports the design of the best expansion plan for upcoming runway construction and future addition of buildings. INFRAWAY focuses on transport infrastructure, serving the market with project solutions in disciplines such as geometry, paving, earthworks and drainage for different modes of transportation. As a customer of Intermap, INFRAWAY leverages the benefits of NEXTMap One, the world's most accurate, authoritative and global elevation dataset. Learn more about NEXTMap data here.
Intermap also supports digital infrastructure with orthorectification of satellite imagery as-a-service. Over the past year, Intermap used its NEXTMap One global terrain data to orthorectify satellite imagery covering 200 airports, resulting in accuracies up to 1-meter, depending on geographic region. Orthorectified satellite imagery is crucial for airport planning studies and can be delivered directly into planning workflows. Intermap's cost-effective as-a-service model results in satellite imagery that has ortho accuracies suitable for commercial air safety, produced in near real-time, and delivered at a fraction of the cost typically offered by commercial satellite and other vendors.
