Denver, Colorado, 5 September 2006: Intermap Technologies, Inc., has entered an agreement with CyberCity 3D LLC to use Intermap’s elevation models in conjunction with ViewTec’s state-of-the-art TerrainView software to create precision 3-D visualization models of five California counties: Los Angeles, Orange, Sacramento, San Diego, and Ventura. The resulting models, named “3D Terrains,” will be available soon.
Each county, ranging in size from 945 to 4,752 square miles, will feature aerial imagery draped over Intermap’s elevation data that has a vertical accuracy of one meter or more. Users of the TerrainView” software may select from a wide palette of environmental attributes; including time-of-day, skybox, distant haze, volumetric clouds, and rain, snow, and wind effects to generate realistic scenes within these counties. They will also have the ability to create and save flight paths, points of interest, and take 3-D measurements of the displayed areas and features.
The combination of highly accurate elevation data and aerial imagery displayed using the TerrainView” application will provide government and commercial agencies with the ability to visually plan in three-dimensions on a seamless, county-wide basis, commented Eric DesRoche, Intermap’s senior vice president of strategic business development.
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Intermap enables customers to facilitate decision-making and create applications for numerous commercial, governmental, military, and consumer products through the purchase of uniform, accurate, and affordable elevation datasets.
