VW Group integrates Intermap 3D Roads into a research and development platform with the aim to developing, testing, and enhancing various ADAS and energy management applications

DENVER, Berlin & Gaimersheim, Germany (June 24, 2010) Intermap Technologies, the worldwide 3D digital mapping company and Audi Electronics Venture GmbH (AEV), a wholly owned subsidiary of Audi AG, today announced that Intermap´s accurate and uniform 3D road geometries for all German roads have been delivered to the VW Group to be added to its research and development platform.

Intermap’s 3D Roads product is the only map dataset that covers all classes of roads – featuring more than one million line kilometers of accurate road centerline position and elevation data for the entire country. Derived from the Company’s NEXTMap database of uniformly accurate digital elevation models (DEMs) for all of Western Europe, this product enables the VW group to test innovative technologies throughout the entire country – from small rural roads to the largest Autobahn.
