In 2015, Alberta Data Partnerships Ltd. (ADP) released an RFP to conduct a review of Canadian provincial mapping systems and those of selected international jurisdictions. After a review of proposals, MMM Group was selected to conduct the report. This included developing a survey, receiving responses and creating the report.
ADP is releasing an abridged version of that report. The reasoning for providing an shortened version is that the removed section of the report relates to a report completed for ADP and Altalis in 2005 that was created for internal purposes rather than for public information.
As a note, not all information in the report may be accurate today, as the survey was completed in 2015.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact ADP.
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.
Alberta Data Partnerships (ADP), in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, have created the Open Data Area Alberta (ODAA) initiative to provide no-cost access to commercial and government data. ADP will also offer SMEs and industry grants for pre-commercial development of technology-based tools utilizing the data provided through the ODAA website and focused on the needs of industry and/or government.

Following a competitive RFP process, MNC Ltd. was selected by ADP as the contractor responsible for updating and maintaining the Disposition Mapping, or DIDs, product. The decision was made by a selection committee of selected ADP Board Members, Government of Alberta and independent consultants. The contract terms were implemented on October 1, 2016 and AltaLIS will continue to manage the distribution of DIDs.
ADP looks forward to working MNC and continuing to support our customers and stakeholders meeting their business needs.
ADP exists within the policy, regulatory and political environment of Alberta and the unique public-private- partnership (P3) model of ADP has been extremely resilient and adaptive since its inception. The organization’s strategy must be aligned to its mandate to ensure key geospatial data sets are complete and accurate, that they connect the creators and users of geospatial data, and that they create a forum for discussion around geospatial data.
The strategic renewal process undertaken in 2015 involved re-examining the mission, vision and goals of the organization to ensure ADP is headed in the right direction and evaluating issues and opportunities for ADP moving forward to ensure it achieves its vision.
ADP is excited to share the key elements of the resulting 2016-2021 Strategic Plan and welcome any comments that our stakeholder community has.
