During 2013, Intermap has announced initial phase contracts involving Orion Platform installations in two countries, totaling approximately $16 million. The Intermap Orion Platform becomes officially available today.
Governments have long utilized the benefits of geospatial data. For many countries, however, cost and complexity of geospatial information – and the infrastructure to manage it – has kept it out of reach for most countries. Now, Intermap’s Orion Platform solves this problem by enabling customers to choose the products and services that are right for them based on their scope, budget, and timeline. Intermap manages and delivers a multitude of fused geospatial datasets and their associated analytics in a simplified standard format.
Two years in the making, Intermap’s Orion Platform is unique in several ways:
“Intermap’s Orion Platform is now the fastest “on-ramp” to the geospatial superhighway for governments around the world,” said Todd Oseth, Intermap president and CEO. “Orion has been two years in the making and represents the sum of Intermap’s strategic plans driven by the convergence of our proprietary data fusion techniques, web-based applications, and rising government mandates for on-demand analytics.”
Intermap’s Orion Platform has five integrated layers:
Oseth continued, “For instance, some customers need immediate access to terrain data for their area of interest, and for that we offer NEXTMap World 30. Other customers require a custom data collection of their country’s water drainage basins including rivers, lakes, and coastlines for weather related risk management and for that we offer our custom geospatial services. And still other customers require the integration of multiple elevation datasets with high-resolution imagery and weather data, and for that we offer a combination of geospatial auditing, data fusion, web-based applications, and cloud-based or LAN-based hosting. The Orion Platform does it all quickly and at the industry’s best price points.”
With today’s Orion Platform™ announcement, Intermap has created the industry’s first integrated “Big Data” spatial data platform. Customers can see the Orion Platform in action at the 12th Southeast Asian Survey Congress, June 18-20, 2013 in Manila, Philippines at the Philippine Convention Center.
