- Company's proprietary, high-resolution elevation data to power dam inundation analysis
- Underscores Intermap's role as a partner-of-choice for reliable safety and emergency planning
Denver, CO /PRNewswire/ - Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP) (OTCQX: ITMSF) ("Intermap" or the "Company"), a global leader in geospatial content development and intelligence solutions, today announced a new infrastructure project with a U.S. federal government agency to provide digital elevation terrain data for dam inundation studies in Arizona.
The federal agency is conducting dam failure inundation studies to produce hydrologic and hydraulic reports for land management and establish emergency action plans. These studies, which are critical to planning and executing emergency response actions, require high-quality, consistent datasets across project locations. Intermap's proprietary digital terrain models (DTMs) provide high-resolution data of the Earth's surface and will be used to generate flood simulations in the event of a dam failure, as well as delineate dam watershed boundaries and calculate reservoir storage capacity.
Patrick A. Blott, Intermap's Chairman and CEO, said, "We are pleased Intermap has been named as a key partner for Arizona's dam inundation studies, which will leverage our leading DTM data, flood maps and models to illustrate the potential outcomes of downstream flooding. This new infrastructure project underscores Intermap's role as a partner-of-choice for federal agencies that depend on our terrain data to plan and execute projects quickly, efficiently and consistently."
Climate change is affecting the frequency and severity of flooding and drought. Many regions of the U.S. with hydropower include areas where river basins are projected to have the greatest risk of water scarcity by 2050 (source). Heavy rainfall can cause severe flooding, damage dam infrastructure and endanger people living nearby, as seen by the collapse of two dams in Michigan in 2020, forcing thousands of people to evacuate (source). Intermap's remote sensing and advanced technology are key parts of ongoing efforts to track water levels, flow vectors, and effective mitigation.
