US: Intermap Technologies – a worldwide 3D digital mapping and geospatial solutions company, announced receipt of a USD 2 million contract for high-resolution digital elevation models to a large producer of natural gas in the United States. The client will take delivery of the Company’s NEXTMap USA countrywide multi-client data library in January.
According to the company press release, this contract award marks the next significant step in the successful penetration in the energy sector. Multiple sales of elevation data have been made to oil and gas, natural gas, wind power, and solar companies following the completion of the NEXTMap USA data set.
The Company will deliver its NEXTMap USA data via a managed account service established on the client’s behalf. The managed account provides the customer with online, as-needed access to digital surface models (DSMs) that include cultural features (such as vegetation, buildings, and roads) and digital terrain models (DTMs) that display the bare earth (with all cultural features digitally removed).
“Not only is the client pleased with the high quality of our data and the timeliness of our initial delivery, but the ease of access afforded them by our web enabled managed account service option will ensure they have all the data they need, where and when they need it” said David Cunningham, Intermap’s senior vice president of global sales and marketing.
