Intermap Technologies Corporation recently announced that it has completed the data acquisition of the state of Hawaii under its NEXTMap USA program. Eight of the Hawaiian Islands have been mapped with the coverage area including: Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Hawaii, Molokai, Nihau, Lania and Kahoolawe. The completion of Hawaii progresses Intermap’s plan to digitally map the entire continental United States and Hawaii in three dimensions. Acquisition of the entire states of California, Florida and
Mississippi has also been completed, as well as portions of many other states, bringing the Company’s total coverage to date to over 1,000,000 square kilometers, totaling over 15 percent of the entire USA.
Collection of the data was partially funded through a contract totaling approximately US$340,000 from the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Over the last year, Intermap has sold coastal data of the continental United States to NOAA, providing NEXTMap USA imagery and elevation map data for regions in Florida, Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. The sales have been part of a planned multi-year purchase program that is anticipated to include selling NEXTMap coastal data for the entire continental United States. Intermap’s product offerings under the NEXTMap USA program include terrain elevation data as well as orthorectified radar imagery. Datasets for many areas of California are now available for purchase through Intermap’s online
Data store, with entire datasets scheduled to be available for purchase later this year. In addition to its standard data products, Intermap provides orthorectified color imagery products upon request.
