Intermap Technologies Wins $2.2M Mapping Contracts: Tsunami Preparedness

Intermap Technologies Wins $2.2M Mapping Contracts for use in Tsunami Preparedness and Energy Exploration in Southeast Asia
Intermap Technologies Corp. (TSX: IMP.TO, AIM: IMAP.L) today
announced that it has been awarded four contracts valued at $2.2
million for radar mapping in Southeast Asia. Under the agreement, the
company will collect and deliver three-dimensional digital elevation
data and orthorectified radar imagery utilizing Intermap’s IFSAR radar
mapping technology. Data will be collected and delivered in 2007.
Accurate and current digital elevation models (DEMs) in this
region will allow the Company’s clients to formulate strategies to
assist in the decision-making needs to mitigate tsunami and geohazard
effects in this island-rich region. Another client will utilize the
data to assist in seismic planning and advanced energy exploration
without disturbing the environment.
“We continue to see a multitude of applications around the
world where up-to-date and accurate elevation data is greatly needed by
our clients,”
said Garth Lawrence, senior vice president of operations for Intermap Technologies. “Our
client base in Southeast Asia continues to grow as the Company has
consistently delivered on time and on budget for a multitude of
contracts in the region. Furthermore, our ability to collect height
data in constantly cloudy conditions allows us to deliver a product
that meets and exceeds our customer’s expectations.”
