Digital mapping and geospatial solutions provider Intermap Technologies (TSX:IMP) revealed today that it has won a contract worth USD12.4m for digital map and image data.
Under this contract Intermap will provide 3D digital elevation models and orthorectified radar images as part of a National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) programme to update the client's current 1:50,000-scale base map.
The geospatial data will be used for topographic map production to manage sustainable forestry projects and to support other local infrastructure needs, Intermap said.
The company will start collecting the data in January 2011 using interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR). At a later stage, prior to data delivery, Intermap will also provide training to the client on the creation of topographic maps.
