The Mining Cadastre Administration System (MCAS) is a web-based software application that supports governments manage their mineral rights. The software manages the full lifecycle of a mining right, from application through approval, licensing, renewals and finally expiration. MCAS has a compliance module that tracks all payments made, payments outstanding, royalties, production reports, and contract terms to ensure compliance of license holders. When used in conjunction with the Online Data Repository, all license and payment data can be exchanged via APIs and be made available online to relevant stakeholders.

MCAS comes with full GIS Server capabilities, using GeoServer embedded in the installation. This means full compatibility to any other GIS system using Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards, including ESRI ArcGIS shape files import and export.

Some of the key new features are:

– Real time plot visualisation during data entry

– Easy beacon re-ordering

– Beacon point drag and drop adjustment

– Auto border detection

– Overlap detection application vs active license

– Protected areas overlap detection

– Sensitive are overlap detection

– Export shape files and ESRI support
