Intermap Technologies Corp., Denver, Colo., and EarthWatch Inc., Longmont, Colo., announced a $1.626 million contract for high-accuracy mapping data for a NASA sponsored five-year aviation safety project.

Intermap will gather digital elevation mapping data (LIDAR) over 11 air traveled mountain passes, which are part of Alaskan air routes. Intergraph’s LIDAR will be collected as part of EarthWatch’s contract with NASA.

Mike Bullock, Intermap’s vice president of sales and business development, said, “The goal is to improve aviation safety using sophisticated three-dimensional digital images integrated in the latest avionics systems.”

The technologies used in the project will include synthetic enhanced vision displays in cockpits, worldwide navigation databases, GPS and terrain databases for airports and air routes.
