Intermap providing 3D elevation data and imagery to ensure fresh water for Singapore
Company is well-positioned for national mapping and climate resilience projects
DENVER, Jan. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP; OTCQX: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in 3D geospatial data and intelligence solutions, today announced it was awarded another government contract in Malaysia to provide 3D elevation data to help assess the causes of pollution in the Skudai River for the State of Johor Baru.
The Johor Water Management Authority in West Malaysia is conducting analysis to identify locations where pollution is entering the Johor River. The Johor River basin is a critical water resource that supplies fresh water to the southern region of West Malaysia, including approximately 40% of the fresh water supply to the city-state of Singapore. The river is one of the most polluted in West Malaysia. River cleanup and stopping the illegal dumping of trash are government priorities.
“Southeast Asian nations and other cloud-belt countries are difficult to map,” said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. “With our unique technology that penetrates cloud cover, governments benefit from new 3D data and archive products for natural resources and water resources management, which are essential elements of environmental protection and climate resilience.”
Intermap’s versatile 3D elevation datasets and analytics are applied to a variety of environmental work, such as pollution management, renewable energy planning, water resource management and sustainable land development. The Company’s multi-use data and analytics are also utilized in climate resilience projects for flood mitigation and stormwater infrastructure, where governments face increasing pressure to allocate more resources.
A long history of working relationships with local partners in Southeast Asia makes Intermap a key provider of 3D elevation data for government agencies. The Company leverages its experience, proprietary data and technology to supply critical information for the development of national mapping programs and has built a robust pipeline of government work in the region.

In Malaysia, Intermap’s 3D elevation data and cloud-free archive imagery are being employed to assess sites with the highest potential of source pollutants. The elevation data will be used to create contours to identify drainage areas into the river. 3D radar imagery is essential for identifying above-ground features such as large buildings, factories and other potential sources of near-river structures potentially dumping into the river.
