Intermap has announced a contract with Zipline to deliver geospatial Elevation-as-a-Service to support their expanding medical operations in Africa, including on-demand emergency response to COVID-19 outbreaks.
The subscription contract has been urgently upsized following its successful proof of concept.
This deal marks Intermap’s return to the African market, and its expansion in the global unmanned aviation sector.
The firm says it further illustrates how on-demand, real-time geospatial elevation data and analytics, delivered as a service, is mission-critical for the workflows that maximize flight safety and efficiency for unmanned logistics – in the air, on land, and at sea.
Patrick Blott, Intermap’s chairman and CEO, said: “Intermap is an established world leader in all-source elevation data and analytics, including its collection, processing, exploitation, and delivery.
Adding: “Our relationship with Zipline provides an excellent example of how Intermap’s patented, on-demand, and near real-time processing, when combined with our cloud-based provisioning and customizable analytics, Elevation-as-a-Service, can support rapid operational expansion (strategic and tactical) for growing UAV companies – and it’s all immediately available on a global scale.”
