“At Placer Dome we are focused on ensuring that the valuable 3D data is managed in an appropriate way across disciplines and sites”, commented Glen Kuntz Global Spatial Data Coordinator, Placer Dome. “With a leading edge data management approach we can make sure that our people spend their time working with their data not searching for it or wondering if it is the right version”.

Richard Matthews, Director of Sales and Marketing for Fractal Technologies noted, “The Fractal Technologies Spatial Data Server is a robust solution to the challenges of data management and ongoing audit needs related to the vast amounts of data the industry collects”.

Mr Matthews also highlighted the partnership of the two companies as a key to the successful deployment. “We have been working with Placer in a very collaborative way over the past six to nine months which has made for a smooth, successful installation,” said Mr Matthews.

The Fractal Technologies Spatial Data Server was presented at the Fractal Technologies booth during the annual convention of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada in Toronto, 6th – 9th March 2005.
