Customers Quotes About DAP
"People used to spend a lot of time running around looking for stuff they couldn't find, but now they can find it right away because it's all coming from one place. That has improved our effectiveness. It's a one-stop shop."
Peter Thurston, Kennecott Exploration, Rio Tinto
"The web-browser interface, Oasis montaj, and Dapple interfaces to the DAP server provide our clients with a great access, visualization, and data integration tools. They have introduced our databases to a much wider client base. This application helps us fulfill our mandate of making Canada more attractive for investment through the provision of basic resource exploration infrastructure data."
Warner Miles, Geological Survey of Canada
"Our DAP server is enabling us to build a library of maps and information for each project that we can share not only with geologists within our group, but with all exploration groups within our company. Access to information and the ability to share information in real time is important to us. The ability to do this on a global basis, where someone from southern Africa can go to Canada and find the same data, is a competitive advantage that enables us to be more flexible and quicker in developing our projects."
Olivier Masset, Areva Resources Southern Africa
"We have seen great advantage in having a system for data maintenance, storage and security. Basically, we have a lot of data, and the ability to put it all into our Geosoft DAP server means that we don't have to rely on CDs, DVDs, or the individual who last worked with the data. For the longer term, we are building an information asset that will continue to deliver value in the future. Having main datasets and meta data within our DAP system means we can track and access data in a standard way, as well as identify the latest version."
Ana Maria Goncalves, Vale
"We selected Geosoft and ESRI technology because we saw a strong fit with our need to establish a solid data foundation, and company-wide standards for our exploration systems. Having worked with Geosoft for over 15 years, we had confidence in their ability to deliver a global solution. The interoperability of all our exploration software platforms is absolutely critical, and ESRI’s ArcGIS system together with Geosoft’s DAP data server technology, Target and Oasis montaj applications, gives us everything we need within one solution."
Bob Holroyd, Teck
"Geosoft’s DAP server has been critical to us. In fact, two years ago we wouldn’t have been able to build the Exploration Data Management system because the technology didn’t exist. We are highly dependent on rasters and DAP’s speed in serving up these grids and images from very large databases is very impressive."
Bill Whalen, Kennecott Exploration, Rio Tinto
"Geosoft DAP technology addresses the efficient finding, evaluation and retrieval of large spatial datasets on networks. It is optimised for our industry’s needs."
Hudson Ngwisanyi, Geological Survey of Botswana
"Being involved in the evaluation of DAP Technology and working with the Geosoft team in development of a DAP Server implementation for our organization has been a rewarding experience, and is leading to what promises to be a truly exciting data management product."
