After a competitive and open RFP process, Abacus Datagraphics Ltd. was awarded a contract by Alberta Data Partnerships to develop an application to replace the existing Plan Distribution System (PetroSurveys) which is used to distribute the public lands plans on behalf of the Alberta Government.
The application, BADGR, has been released. Users will find significant improvements in the web interface including a browser agnostic map search tool and simplified order form. Over the next few months features such as e-commerce and an API to make ordering plans even easier will be added to the application.
Users will also find the cost of ordering a plan has been reduced significantly from $15 to $3, although a plan must be paid for each time it is ordered.
This initiative supports the Strategic Priorities found in our 2016 -2021 Strategic Plan and will provide significant value to our private and public sector stakeholders.
