    Intermap Technologies Completes NEXTMap Europe Countrywide 3D Mapping

    Program

Addition of Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and

    Switzerland completes the Company’s geospatial database of Western Europe

DENVER (May 6, 2009): Intermap Technologies today announced that its NEXTMap Europe

    3D digital elevation models and high-resolution orthorectified radar images of Western Europe

    (2.4 million square kilometers) are now complete and available for purchase. The Company’s

    NEXTMap Europe program includes complete nationwide digital maps for Andorra, Austria,

    Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Ireland, Italy, Vatican City,

    Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Spain,

    Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

“The commercial availability of the entire NEXTMap Europe program is a major milestone for

    both Intermap and the geospatial community at large,” said Brian Bullock, the Company’s

    president and chief executive officer. The vision we initiated four years ago to remap all of

    Western Europe is now a reality. I’m fully convinced that this achievement will enable the development of products and applications in countless fields, ranging from environmental

    management and 3D visualization, to carbon emission reduction and insurance risk management,

    to name a few.

Intermap’s NEXTMap

    ? Europe database includes digital surface models that include cultural

    features such as vegetation, buildings, and roads; digital terrain models with all cultural features

    digitally removed; and orthorectified radar images that accentuate topographic features all with

    a vertical accuracy of 1 meter or better. The Company has also created value-added products

    such as contours, 3D road centerline geometries, and other high-resolution geospatial products as

    part of the program.

“To put the full scope of our accomplishment in perspective,” continued Bullock, “consider the

    fact that we flew more than 630,000 line kilometers (391,463 miles) to complete NEXTMap

    Europe, or the equivalent of nearly 16 times around the equator. Even more impressive is the

    fact that our field crews drove more than 258,500 kilometers (160,624 miles) installing ground

control points roughly the same as driving roundtrip between Amsterdam and Rome 78

    times.

According to Richard Mohr, Intermap’s senior vice president and CFO, “Never before, in the

    history of mapping, has a private enterprise self-funded the successful collection, processing, and

    creation of a highly accurate database of uniform countrywide maps of Western Europe. When

    you consider uncontrollable factors such as weather patterns, fuel prices, and flight regulations

    that vary country by country, the fact that we completed the program on schedule and within

    budget is astonishing.”

    ?The Company is now focusing its efforts on processing the data that has been fully collected for USA nationwide mapping

    the contiguous United States and Hawaii as part of its NEXTMapprogram scheduled to be completely available in the first quarter of 2010. Data is currently

    available for both programs through the Company’s direct sales team, online via

    www.TerrainOnDemand.com, or through Intermap’s worldwide partner network.
