July 31,2002 Intermap technologies has announced that it has received additional funding to support the processing of topographic data from the NASA Shuttle Radar Topographic Mapping mission. The SRTM mission collected near worldwide topographic data during its February 2000 flight. The National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) sponsor the SRTM processing.
The SRTM mission flew on NASA’s Space Shuttle in February 2000 providing the first, near world-wide, radar coverage that provides for the creation of three-dimensional digital elevation model (DEM) maps from 60 degrees north latitude to 56 south latitude.
Using its proprietary technology, Intermap is employed worldwide by governments and private industry to acquire data over large areas accurately, quickly, and economically. The Company uses this data to generate maps, terrain elevation data and orthorectified images in several highly automated production facilities. Map products are available at the Company’s GLOBAL Terrain (www.globalterrain.com) e-commerce Internet site. Intermap is building a global database of digital elevation models. The Company’s maps are used in a wide range of applications including planning and engineering projects, in navigation systems, and to enrich satellite images
