Spatial Dimension Announces Successful Launch Helping Plum Creek with Non-Timber Lease Management

Vancouver, BC—April 22, 2014—Spatial Dimension Canada is excited to announce the production go-live of the FlexiCadastre Land & Agreement Compliance solution for lease management with one of the largest private landowners in the United States, Plum Creek Timber Company (NSYE:PCL).

“FlexiCadastre is ideally suited to help timber companies – as well as other large private landowners – manage revenue opportunities from royalties generated through lease agreements on their land holdings, whether for Oil & Gas, Mineral, Construction Material, Renewable Energy or other land use rights. In addition to helping track the requirements of these leases, our powerful process-based approach also addresses managing production, reporting, compliance, auditing and approval activities. I am very pleased to congratulate Plum Creek on their successful implementation of FlexiCadastre for managing non-timber leases across their landbase” said Mike Baumgartner, Managing Director for Spatial Dimension Canada.

Paul Hossain, General Manager of the Energy & Natural Resources unit at Plum Creek explained, “The FlexiCadastre platform provides Plum Creek with a powerful tool to enhance management of its non-timber resources.”

Peter Eredics, ForestryManager at Esri added: “We are thrilled that Spatial Dimension’s FlexiCadastre solution has found a place in the timberland management market. Their solution fits very well with other Esri-based GIS solutions for the Forest industry and makes the addition of extractive resource management for large timberland owners a more seamless process. FlexiCadastre will allow timber companies and other timberland managers to include more complete business intelligence, facilitating planning and forecasting processes while helping them realize new non-timber revenue opportunities from their land holdings.”

“Spatial Dimension and their award-winning FlexiCadastre product are a flagship partner and key solution provider for Esri in the extractive resource space. With their unparalleled experience helping the world’s leading mining companies manage their land rights and agreement obligations, we were confident their expansion into helping large land owners in the Forest industry manage non-timber rights would be a successful one – congratulations to Plum Creek and Spatial Dimension in this exciting new chapter of their business” concluded Geoff Wade, Natural Resources Manager at Esri.
