New High-resolution DEM, available

High-resolution digital elevation models and images for the entire states of Louisiana, Maine, New Mexico, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Texas are commercially available announced Intermap.

The data was collected as part of Intermap’s NEXTMap USA nationwide mapping program, scheduled for completion by June 30, 2010. These datasets join other complete statewide coverage of Arizona, California, Florida, and Mississippi, along with partial state coverage areas – all of which are immediately available for purchase and include approximately 80% of the U.S.

Intermap’s NEXTMapdatabase includes digital surface models (DSMs) that include cultural features such as vegetation, buildings, and roads; digital terrain models (DTMs) with all cultural features digitally removed; and orthorectified radar images (ORIs) that accentuate topographic features – all with a vertical accuracy of 1 meter or better.

The Company has also created value-added products such as contours, 3D road centerline geometries, and other high-resolution geospatial products as part of the program. NEXTMap data is currently available through the Company’s direct sales team, online via, or through Intermap’s worldwide partner network.
