Intermap Technologies Corporation recently announced that it has created a new digital three-dimensional map of the state of California. The feature-rich data, which includes terrain models and color imagery can be used for many applications including GIS, engineering planning, transportation, automotive, navigation, flood, irrigation, environmental management and planning, telecommunications network planning, aviation, simulation and 3D visualization. The data can also be used to enhance the value of airborne and satellite imagery.
As part of its NEXTMap US program to create the most accurate digital 3D map of the entire US, Intermap has already mapped Florida, Mississippi, Hawaii and portions of many other states. California, having a size of over 423,000 square kilometers, is the largest state mapped by Intermap thus far. With the addition of California, Intermap now has data for over 1 million square kilometers (nearly 15 percent) of the US available for purchase.
