Highlights Include Keynote Presentation, Hosted Sessions on 3D Modeling and LiDAR, Disaster Management and Tsunami Workshop
JAKARTA, Indonesia — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 17, 2011 — Intermap (TSX: IMP), a leading provider of location-based information (LBI) solutions created from its uniform, high-resolution 3D digital models and orthorectified imagery of the earth’s surface, today announces that three of the Company’s executives will participate in the 10th Annual Asian Conference and Exhibition on Geospatial Information, Technology and Applications being held Oct. 17-19 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Intermap’s unprecedented and highly successful NEXTMap ® 3D digital mapping program offers uniform and precise wide-area elevation data and orthometric images. NEXTMap uses best-of-breed elevation data sets from a variety of remote sensing technologies (interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR), LiDAR, photogrammetry, and satellite radargrammetry) to obtain the best available high resolution x, y and z coordinates of the Earth’s landmass. Intermap has mapped more than 2 million square kilometers in Southeast Asia under the NEXTMap Program. This data set provides the regions first cloud free orthorectified radar imagery and digital terrain models suitable for topographic and geologic mapping, hazard analysis, and water management applications.
The NEXTMap dataset includes a digital surface model (DSM) which contains elevations of cultural features, such as vegetation, buildings and roads; a digital terrain model (DTM) with the elevations of cultural and vegetation features digitally removed; and an orthorectified radar image (ORI) that has been orthorectified to remove geometric distortions caused by the terrain making the images ready for topographic mapping. All products are available via multiple delivery options with flexible pricing and licensing.
David Cunningham, senior vice president of Sales at Intermap, will participate in a keynote session on the broad range of applications for NEXTMap data in Southeast Asia.
David Hisdal, vice president of Asia and Australia Sales at Intermap, will participate in a symposium on disaster management. Hisdal will discuss how two catastrophic tsunamis in Southeast Asia have led to the widespread adoption of remote sensing and GIS data as an integrated and successful tool in disaster management and mitigation.
Lorraine Tighe, director of Geospatial Solutions at Intermap, will be hosting the “Asia Pacific High Resolution Elevation Data and Cloud Free Imagery Applications Workshop,” which will provide participants with a look into how Intermap’s NEXTMap data was collected, what the mapping products are and how to use them. In particular, the following geospatial applications will be reviewed: telecommunications (wireless network planning, line of sight), engineering planning (pipelines, highways, waterways, power lines), forestry (oil palm mapping and canopy height), hydrology (watershed management, flood modeling), geology (geological structure and lithology mapping), and topographic mapping (using orthorectification high-resolution radar imagery).
Andrew Bashfield, sales representative, Southeast Asia at Intermap, will participate in a symposium to discuss 3D modeling and LiDAR/NEXTMap imaging for water management applications.
