Intermap Purchased Fourth Aircraft - 08/11/2006
Intermap Technologies Corp. (Co, USA) has added a fourth aircraft to their fleet of planes equipped with Intermap’s IFSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) airborne data collection system. The new aircraft will begin operating in Europe and is capable of collecting approximately 1,500,000 sq. km. (580,000 sq. mi.) of highly-accurate digital elevation data per year.
The added capacity provided by this aircraft aids in the completion of Intermap’s aggressive plan for the proactive collection of country-wide data throughout Europe by the end of 2007. Starting in November 2006, this aircraft will begin updating elevation data previously collected in the United Kingdom. The aircraft will then spend the bulk of 2007 supporting the remainder of the NEXTMap Europe program, which covers 13 European countries.
