As the former Executive manager of Geological Survey Division, Mineral Resources Authority of PNG I was introduced to FlexiCadastre about 3 years ago, by Charles Young and Eva Stredder.
After previously working in the Department of Mines and Energy in Queensland I immediately saw the utility of the system for operation in a developing country and promoted the utility of the system for operation in PNG.
After a long period of negotiation with the World Bank Technical Assistance Program and the acceptance of bids for the program, Spatial Dimension was accepted as the contractor to introduce a Digital Mining Tenement Administration System into PNG.
The professionalism of the staff in the inception phase of the project has been amazing and the enthusiasm of local staff to take up the system has been very encouraging and I look forward to the implementation of the system into the country.
*Trimble acquired Spatial Dimension on September 2, 2015. FlexiCadastre is now part of the Landfolio software suite.
