Colorado, USA, 04 April 2007: Intermap Technologies and GeoContent GmbH have agreed to provide a bundled solution that meets the geospatial needs of plenty of applications and markets in Germany. The partnership, focused on complementing high-resolution aerial imagery with the most accurate and uniform 3D geometric datasets available for Germany, will pave the way for greater accessibility and savings in German geospatial markets.
GeoContent is Germany’s provider of aerial imagery covering almost the entire country. The imagery, branded “Digitale Luftbildkarte,” or “DLK,” is geo-referenced, color balanced, and mosaicked. All the imagery available has nominal 50-centimeter resolution since 2000, thus ensuring a current, accurate product. Updates are ongoing since 2005, with a 200-city, 10 to 20 centimeter resolution mapping program.
“By partnering with Intermap, our customers can now quickly and affordably procure high quality elevation data collected as part of Intermap’s ongoing NEXTMap Europe program. The Germany elevation data, with a 5-meter posting and vertical accuracy at one meter or better, was collected late last year and is ideally suited for advanced GIS applications that cut across a wide variety of disciplines,” said Matthias Bachman, Sales Director of GeoContent. “Intermap is leading the way by collecting highly accurate entire-county datasets in Europe. We are proud to be offering these high resolution datasets as an option to our current customers.”
Intermap’s data, including digital terrain models, digital surface models, and orthorectified radar imagery, is available through GeoContent’s sales and distribution channels. This dataset of Germany includes a 20-kilometer buffer around the country’s border. Under the terms of the agreement, Intermap will bundle and promote GeoContent’s DLK imagery to their customers and clients in the German geospatial market.
“We are excited to be working with GeoContent to offer a complete solution of high-quality color imagery combined with the most current, accurate, and uniform 3D elevation data available for Germany,” said John Weeber, Intermap’s Director of Business Development.
