PRINCIPALS

Lance Fraker, President
Lance Fraker is a graduate of San Diego State University where he majored in Finance and minored in Spanish. Prior to entering San Diego State, Lance was chosen as one of the first exchange students to go to Ecuador where he learned fluent Spanish. In 1989, he entered the mapping industry, working with one of the first digital mapping companies (Data Maps) in the United States. He worked directly with Lee County Alabama 911 to create and establish the first digital map of the county. This digital map was used in the Lee County Dispatch center and could display any street within the county in two seconds. The digital map was also used to create atlases (map books) for all emergency responders in the county. After relocating in South Florida in 2003, Lance's skills and knowledge led him to a South Florida map company where he became the lead sales executive. As lead sales executive he worked with many large organizations (Bank of America, Coldwell Banker, Palm Beach County Board of Realtors, to name a few) to help these clients with their mapping needs. After eight (8) years he expanded his horizons to a much larger and nationally known map company where he was in charge of custom mapping for a wide range of clients. At this company he also worked with large entities such as AT&T, Chicago Board of Realtors and many of the Ohio County Engineer's Offices, to fulfill their mapping needs. Lance was directly responsible for converting many of these clients from old manual created map bases into digital or GIS based maps. In his free time, Lance is an avid South Florida Sports fan, concert goer and international traveler.
