Denver,USA, August 07, 2007: Intermap Technologies Corp. has been awarded the MAPPS Geospatial Products and Services Excellence Awards under the Photogrammetry / Elevation Data Generation category.
Intermap’s “Torino 2006 IFSAR Mapping Project” was conducted on behalf of the Italian mapping agency Istituto Geografico Militare (IGM) using the Company’s proprietary Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR) digital mapping technology. The project covered 5,600 square kilometers of northwestern Italy’s varied terrain, including the three most challenging environments to model: high alpine, lowland floodplain, and urban.
According to panel chairman, Don Evick, “The judges were very impressed with the high quality and diversity of the submissions, and the breath and depth of the expertise of the firms. All of the projects exhibited very effective and innovative use of the most state-of-the-art mapping technologies to solve important real-world problems. Many of the projects had to overcome significant logistical and scheduling challenges. The projects not only provided reliable and detailed engineering data, but had substantial economic, social, environmental, and/or political benefits as well. And, all of the projects resulted in a high level of customer satisfaction.
“In particular,” continued Evick, “Intermap’s Torino 2006 Mapping Project demonstrated an innovative use of their proprietary radar mapping technology to exceed customer demands, while addressing some of the most challenging and complex project requirements imaginable.”
