Intermap Technologies and FS Dreamscapes Release NEXTMap ProMesh Elevation Data for Microsoft Flight Simulator X

DENVER & HONOLULU—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 28, 2008— Intermap Technologies and FS Dreamscapes today announced the release of the first products in the NEXTMap® ProMesh series for California, Hawaii, Mississippi, Florida, and the United Kingdom.

NEXTMap® ProMesh features terrain mesh and photoscenery downloads optimized for Microsoft® Flight Simulator X, and is based on terrain data collected as part of Intermaps country-wide NEXTMap 3D digital mapping program.

This is the first major milestone reached since forging our partnership in early 2008. Thanks to Intermaps wide area, high-resolution elevation data, the ProMesh product enhances the terrain in Microsoft Flight Simulator X with elevation data that is eight times the resolution and sixty-four times more detailed than the default FSX terrain, said Dean Mountford, president and CEO of FS Dreamscapes.

Additionally, the datasets go far beyond the quality, detail and currency of the United States Geological Surveys 10-meter National Elevation Dataset and NASAs 90-meter Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, upon which all other previous terrain products for Flight Simulator have been based, Mountford continued.

Never before has 5-meter posted elevation data, accurate to 1-meter vertically, been broadly available for both the United States and Europe, said Kevin Thomas, vice president of marketing for Intermap Technologies. Were extremely excited to provide the geospatial foundation for a product that will revolutionize the way users see the world in both Flight Simulator X and Train Simulator 2.

Microsoft flight simulator photoscenery and terrain mesh products are available for purchase and download at: www.fsdreamscapes.com/store.
