- Large scale spatial databases (10M rows and up)
- High load spatial databases (multiple updates per second
- High reliability installations (replication and clustering)
- Multi-dimensional spatial databases (3- and 4-dimensions)
- Spatial data modeling (very large data models)

Biodiversity BC and its government and non-government partners were looking for regional-level environmental statistics.
