ViewTec AG and Intermap Technologies Announce Partnership for Virtual Reality Based TerrainView-Globe(TM) 3D Products

ZURICH & DENVER—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 18, 2007— ViewTec AG, headquartered in Switzerland, and Intermap Technologies Corp. (TSX: IMP.TO) (AIM: IMAP.L), headquartered in the United States, have entered a strategic business partnership to provide TerrainView-Globe(TM) 3D with premium elevation models, based on Intermap's highly reliable geospatial core products and ViewTec's state-of-the-art visualization, exploration, and simulation software.

"Intermap Technologies is a world leader in the development of high-resolution digital surface and digital terrain models, and orthorectified radar images," says Dr. Michael Beck, president and CEO of ViewTec AG. "This partnership is particularly significant since accurate terrain is the key to developing our high-quality premium elevation models as the foundation for existing and emerging 3D visualization applications. Being able to provide premium elevation models, together with TerrainView-Globe will allow us to meet the increasing demand in the field of 3D VIZ/SIM for high definition and high-quality base data."

"As technology advances and users demand a higher quality and more realistic virtual experience, ViewTec is already ahead of the curve in delivering a top-notch product," said John Weeber, Intermap's director of business partner development. "Providing our height data as the accurate foundation layer for visualization is only one of many uses where we are enabling partners around the world to build solutions to drive geospatial applications that solve real-world needs."

Under the terms of this agreement, ViewTec and Intermap will market the premium elevation models bundled with TerrainView-Globe(TM) to the 3D visualization, exploration, and simulation community. Premium elevation models will be available on-demand, together with TerrainView-Globe(TM), on a local, regional, and national level, to enable the building of high-definition 3D models for 17 European countries and the United States.
