Intermap announces acceptance of final SRTM data delivery

SHARE

Intermap Technologies, announced that its final Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data production delivery has been accepted by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). This acceptance marks the successful conclusion of Intermap’s effort on the production task order, which Intermap supported as a subcontractor to The Boeing Company, in processing the elevation data from the NGA-NASA SRTM project. The Boeing/Intermap team completed the editing and quality assurance of the data ahead of schedule and within the negotiated contract amount. As a result of its performance on the production task order, the team has subsequently received an additional task order for value-added processing to fill voids in the SRTM data with alternate sources of elevation information.
In February 2000, NASA’s Space Shuttle Endeavour flew the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, collecting digital elevation data for approximately 80% of the Earth’s land surface. It is the first, close to worldwide, radar coverage that is used for the creation of three-dimensional digital elevation model (DEM) maps ranging from 60 degrees north latitude to 56 degrees south latitude.
