“Spatial Dimension is thrilled to welcome Uganda as our latest client to adopt the cloud based FlexiCadastre Portal for publishing public domain information on their mining sector”, said Mr Bill Feast, Managing Director of Spatial Dimension. “Uganda joins the DRC who have successfully been publishing data for the past year through our Portal. We anticipate that a number of other countries in the region will soon adopt this platform to increase transparency and investment in their mining sectors”, added Mr Feast.
In April 2011 the Ugandan Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, through the Department of Geological Survey and Mines contracted MTL Consulting Company Limited of Tanzania to implement a modern Mining Cadastre and Registry System based on FlexiCadastre.
The goal of the project was to improve transparency and security of tenure; increase accessibility of information to private sector investors including small-scale miners; and ensure standardisation and uniformity of mineral licensing procedures. It now allows for the efficient and reliable management of mineral rights for the benefit of all mineral stakeholders, the people and the Government of Uganda.
The portal can be accessed at http://www.flexicadastre.com/uganda/.
FlexiCadastre uses a workflow-centric and spatially-enabled approach to provide a scalable, enterprise-ready and integrated solution to drive the efficient administration of mineral rights and contracts across multiple global jurisdictions. Using a web portal for data management and reporting, advanced task management, configurable business logic and best of breed GIS technologies, FlexiCadastre has become a world leader in mineral rights management solutions.
