Intermap Technologies and FS Dreamscapes Partner to Provide Highly Detailed 3D Terrain Data for Microsoft Flight Simulator X

DENVER—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 12, 2008— Intermap Technologies today announced an agreement with FS Dreamscapes, a third-party provider of terrain mesh and photoscenery downloads optimized for Microsoft(R) Flight Simulator X. The agreement calls for the creation of highly detailed terrain modules for the United States and Europe called "NEXTMap(R) ProMesh(TM)". The ProMesh line is based on terrain data collected as part of Intermap's country-wide NEXTMap 3D digital mapping program. With a vertical accuracy of one-meter or better, the data will provide users with a uniquely realistic viewing experience.

"FS Dreamscapes has done an outstanding job creating a product that provides the most realistic viewing experience possible for Microsoft Flight Simulator X users," commented Kevin Thomas, vice president of marketing for Intermap Technologies. "Taking our high-resolution 3D digital elevation data and using it to enhance a consumer application in the video game industry is an amazing use of our data."

"We are thrilled to incorporate Intermap's uniformly accurate NEXTMap data in our Microsoft Flight Simulator X application," said Dean Mountford, FS Dreamscape's president and CEO. "The terrain detail we're able to achieve on such a large scale is unprecedented," he continued. "For the user, it will be like looking out the window of an actual aircraft in flight."

FS Dreamscapes will first bring to market the flight simulator product for Hawaii, quickly followed by California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, and Florida. Data for Germany, Italy, and France is scheduled for delivery by the end of 2008. The remainder of the contiguous United States will be available in 2009. FS Dreamscapes' NEXTMap ProMesh products are available on the company's website at www.fsdreamscapes.com/store and through distributors worldwide.
