Intermap Technologies Completes NEXTMap Europe Countrywide 3D Mapping Program

DENVER — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 6, 2009 Intermap Technologies today announced that its NEXTMap Europe 3D digital elevation models and high-resolution orthorectified radar images of Western Europe (2.4 million square kilometers) are now complete and available for purchase. The Company’s NEXTMap Europe program includes complete nationwide digital maps for Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Ireland, Italy, Vatican City, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

“The commercial availability of the entire NEXTMap Europe program is a major milestone for both Intermap and the geospatial community at large,” said Brian Bullock, the Company’s president and chief executive officer. “The vision we initiated four years ago to remap all of Western Europe is now a reality. I’m fully convinced that this achievement will enable the development of products and applications in countless fields, ranging from environmental management and 3D visualization, to carbon emission reduction and insurance risk management, to name a few.”

Intermap’s NEXTMap® Europe database includes digital surface models that include cultural features such as vegetation, buildings, and roads; digital terrain models with all cultural features digitally removed; and orthorectified radar images that accentuate topographic features – all with a vertical accuracy of 1 meter or better. The Company has also created value-added products such as contours, 3D road centerline geometries, and other high-resolution geospatial products as part of the program.

“To put the full scope of our accomplishment in perspective,” continued Bullock, “consider the fact that we flew more than 630,000 line kilometers (391,463 miles) to complete NEXTMap Europe, or the equivalent of nearly 16 times around the equator. Even more impressive is the fact that our field crews drove more than 258,500 kilometers (160,624 miles) installing ground control points – roughly the same as driving roundtrip between Amsterdam and Rome – 78 times.”

According to Richard Mohr, Intermap’s senior vice president and CFO, “Never before, in the history of mapping, has a private enterprise self-funded the successful collection, processing, and creation of a highly accurate database of uniform countrywide maps of Western Europe. When you consider uncontrollable factors such as weather patterns, fuel prices, and flight regulations that vary country by country, the fact that we completed the program on schedule and within budget is astonishing.”

The Company is now focusing its efforts on processing the data that has been fully collected for the contiguous United States and Hawaii as part of its NEXTMap® USA nationwide mapping program – scheduled to be completely available in the first quarter of 2010. Data is currently available for both programs through the Company’s direct sales team, online via www.TerrainOnDemand.com, or through Intermap’s worldwide partner network.
