United States : Losers lash Murray map tender.
Companies involved in a tender to map 5 per cent of the basin say the MDBA will not obtain the most accurate information of ground conditions along the Murray.
One company, NearMap, claimed its new form of aerial photo imaging provided 2400 per cent more terrain information than images by Intermap Technologies, the US company which won the tender and uses radar technology.
NearMap chief executive Stuart Nixon said his company could map the whole basin for tens of millions of dollars less than Intermap, but the MDBA had ignored repeated offers to present the technology.
