Intermap Technologies, Inc. | February 13, 2023
Intermap Technologies (Intermap), a leading 3D geospatial products and intelligence solutions provider, recently announced that it has been chosen by the United States Department of Defense to advance to the next stage of a competitive process to showcase advanced technology for Geospatial Temporal Incident Data. Intermap was invited to showcase its newest artificial intelligence processing technology and illustrate how it can help the U.S. government with actionable, geo-precise data for planning processes and situational awareness after its prior proposal was vetted and assessed.
Human-caused events (population disturbances, crime, riots and protests, and cybersecurity advancements) and natural hazard occurrences are included in Geospatial Temporal Incident Data. At the Thunderstorm 23-1 event in April 2023, Intermap will exhibit its capabilities and demonstrate its advanced technology to the Department of Defense.
Intermap's digital tool combines machine learning, artificial intelligence algorithms, natural language processing, proprietary, multi-sensor-derived terrain, global-scale, object, and feature catalogs, and open-source global data to track, identify, display, and notify interested parties of current international events, threats, and natural disasters.
Its technology using ML/AI/NLP processing, analyses and precisely geolocates the danger level, categorizes each occurrence, calculates its footprint, and marks it on a map to enable actionable visualization for possible threats in a given region of interest. The generated information improves situational awareness and aids planning procedures by fusing, analyzing, and visualizing events and trends to present the U.S. Army with an enhanced common operation picture (COP).
