Intermap to Create 3D Map of Western Europe by 2007

You won't run into anymore of those pesky mountains in Western Europe with the new 3D map that Intermap Technologies Corp. plans to unveil by the end of 2007.

In addition to enabling traditional Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications for the newly created elevation models, Intermap will create 3D road vector data products to improve Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications to drive active safety devices, fuel performance improvements and in-car navigation

The announcement comes a few months after Intermap had announced that it would have completed both Western Europe and the U.S high resolution 3D maps by the end of 2008. According to the announcement, Intermap's revised schedule for accelerating the completion of Western Europe will not affect the scheduled completion of NEXTMap USA.

W. European 3D Map will include these countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain & United Kingdom
