Intermap’s Real 3D Data Elevates Video Game Development

Enhancing in-game realism with real 3D mapping

Streamlining design processes for the creation of gaming environments

DENVER, May 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP; OTCQB: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in 3D geospatial products and intelligence solutions, today announced a contract with one of the top 5 video game developers to provide custom digital surface models (DSMs) for the creation of realistic in-game environments.

By leveraging Intermap’s NEXTMap® 3D DSMs, video game developers can depict terrain as it exists in real life, enhancing the authenticity of the user experience. The consistency and accuracy of Intermap’s data reduce the time and effort required by designers to achieve environments that closely resemble real life. This efficiency is a critical benefit for game developers, enabling them to bring new games to the market quickly without limitations imposed by older, coarser public data sources.

Today’s agreement includes a service to align Intermap’s data solution with the client’s other reference sources, such as imagery, resulting in substantial time and cost savings. This seamless integration underscores the Company’s commitment to delivering comprehensive solutions tailored to meet the unique requirements of its clients.

“The demand for high-quality, real data and images is driving the growth of 3D mapping and modeling in the gaming industry,” said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. “As gamers seek increasingly immersive experiences, developers seek to leverage advanced technologies to create environments and characters that closely resemble real life. Our expertise in real 3D geospatial data, augmented by our AI/ML-driven application layers, provides enhanced value extraction and unlocks new realms of creativity for developers. This contract highlights the pivotal role of real 3D elevation data in advancing the realism of gaming environments.”

The addressable market for high-quality, realistic 3D mapping solutions is expanding rapidly, driven by the growing demand for realism and immersive experiences in video games and other virtual world applications. The market for 3D mapping and modeling in games is expected to grow from $5.86 billion in 2023 to $15.62 billion in 2031 at a CAGR of 13% (source). Intermap’s solution emphasizes the superiority of real-time reality capture of actual data over synthetic digital twins, setting a new standard for gaming realism. By providing unparalleled accuracy and detail, the Company enables video game developers to create experiences that exceed user expectations for lifelike worlds.
