Intermap to perform airborne radar mapping in Alaska

Denver, US: Intermap Technologies bagged USD 2.0 million task order from Dewberry & Davis to perform airborne radar mapping in Alaska. The work will be performed during the summer months of 2012 and is the second phase of a multi-year mapping programme in Alaska.

Intermap will use its proprietary Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR) technology to collect orthorectified radar imagery and high resolution elevation data for an area of Alaska that has never been mapped to this level of accuracy. The elevation data and imagery collected by Intermap will be used in economic development, infrastructure development and homeland security applications.

“This task order is an excellent example of the high quality 3D mapping solutions that Intermap consistently provides around the world,” said Todd Oseth, President and CEO of Intermap. “In this case, Alaska is in need of a highly accurate digital elevation model (DEM) and Intermap has the proven IFSAR technology and the comprehensive production and quality control facilities to meet their stringent accuracy requirements. This new data will also enable Intermap to develop targeted 3D Business Applications serving multiple greenfield markets in Alaska.”
