Harris’ ImageLinks Program is a market leader in providing products and technology that enable effective management and control of geospatial-based information. Using in-house proprietary technology for image processing, they solve problems that can be better explained and solved visually with images. Their advanced technology manages pixels that represent information that is both visible and invisible to the human eye, combining enhanced pixels with terrain data elements to create image-based information that is more effective for decision-making for commercial and government GIS professionals.
According to Scott Bennett, Director of Business Development, for Harris Corporation, ImageLinks Program, "Our ability to help customers solve complex problems, ranging from environmental monitoring for oil companies or training and simulation for the military, is largely reliant on highly accurate and uniform elevation data and imagery. Our partnership with Intermap has allowed us to expand our broad suite of data products to offer extremely reliable wide-area elevation data at an affordable price."
Commercial market applications for ImageLinks include environmental, forestry/agriculture, mining/oil/gas, telecommunications, and consumer-based businesses. Intermap’s highly accurate and uniform 3D digital elevation models, collected as part of their NEXTMap® countrywide mapping program, are effectively enabling these types of applications worldwide.
“Our relationship with Harris Corporation has been mutually beneficial, in many regards,” states Richard Smolenski, Intermap’s vice president of sales. "Their customer base includes a wide range of environmentally conscious industries and government agencies, and we’re extremely pleased to be part of the geospatial solution Harris has to offer.”
