Refractions Research provides support for enterprises developing applications based on PostGIS / PostgreSQL. Our staff have years of experience with practical issues in spatial database development and deployment:
- 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)

Western Forest Products wanted to move to an open source infrastructure to roll out internal data gathering applications. Refractions helped set up the initial infrastructure and built a template application for landslide reporting.
Refractions helped SANZ tune their database design and database queries to provide maximum performance and flexibility for their EarthWhere application suite.
AT&T Wireless needed to roll out web map services to a public audience, but their proprietary software was too slow and expensive to scale up. Refractions built a pilot project on open source software and free data that demonstrated a 10-fold performance increase and no licensing overhead.
