Intermap Technologies is to supply its new line of elevation shaded image (ESI) products and AccuTerra Europe contour data to Italian company GIOVE in support of their MyNav outdoor GPS device.

“To take up the challenge of its important market of outdoor-assisted navigation, GIOVE identified Intermap as the right partner to improve and highlight MyNav’s unique outdoor navigation engine by combining the Intermap high-quality ESI with the GIOVE `turn by turn' outdoor network,” declared Adriano Scardellato, GIOVE C.E.O. “Germany is only the first step; we believe Intermap and GIOVE have laid a stone of a lasting worldwide partnership.”

Intermap’s elevation shaded image (ESI) combines high-resolution optical images with the high-resolution texture of the Company’s NEXTMap digital elevation data, which provides the recreational user with an optimized visualization for topography and actual terrain features. The ESI enhances the user experience by helping them to quickly identify landscape characteristics at a glance. Intermap will initially supply ESI products for Germany, which will be integrated into MyNav with GIOVE’s extensive routable trail network in recreation areas throughout the country.

The ESI product will be displayed at GIOVE’s booth (Hall A1, booth 209) at the OutDoor Show in Friedrichshafen, Germany (July 16-19).
