Intermap announces contract with Zipline to deliver geospatial elevation-as-a-service
After a successful proof of concept, the subscription contract has been urgently upsized. This deal marks Intermap’s return to the African market, and it’s expansion in the global unmanned aviation sector.
“Intermap is an established world leader in all-source elevation data and analytics, including its collection, processing, exploitation, and delivery,” said Patrick Blott, Intermap’s Chairman, and CEO. “Our relationship with Zipline provides an excellent example of how Intermap’s patented, on-demand, and near real-time processing, when combined with our cloud-based provisioning and customizable analytics, Elevation-as-a-Service, can support rapid operational expansion (strategic and tactical) for growing UAV companies – and it’s all immediately available on a global scale.”
