Intermap announces new web services portal.
3D digital mapping and geospatial solutions company Intermap Technologies (TSX:IMP.TO) announced on Tuesday its new web services portal, an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)-compliant platform that supports the acquisition and delivery of its NEXTMap database and new online geospatial services.
Intermap said its TerrainOnDemand portal has been designed to encourage access and use of geospatial data online, while integrating the resulting information into user-specific geospatial application environments. Supported clients include GIS desktop software, web browsers and web services-enabled custom software.
The portal offers full Web Coverage Service (WCS) functionality that allows users to access native raster content such as digital elevation data, satellite images, digital aerial photos and other phenomena represented by values at each measurement point.
TerrainOnDemand increases the value of the company's NEXTMap cross-border elevation data by: reducing in-house infrastructure and data management investment costs; providing non-GIS clients automatic access and analysis to the most current 3D digital map data; increasing the number of data sharing opportunities across organisations; and eliminating wasted GIS processing time and custom analysis development.
In addition, the company said users can now acquire geospatial information under new financial models that provide greater flexibility and control to customers. No other pricing details were disclosed.
