Spatial Dimension* is pleased to announce that it has recently been awarded a contract by Ghanaian Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning to provide system and data integration services to the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources (MLNR).
The goal of the project, funded by the European Union through the Mining Sector Support Programme (MSSP), is to ensure that existing systems and databases throughout the MLNR are integrated through modern and scalable web-based technologies.
The main beneficiaries of the Project are the Ministry of Lands and Natural resources, the Minerals Commission, the Inspectorate Division of the Minerals Commission, the Geological Survey Department and the Precious Minerals Marketing Company.
“Spatial Dimension will be providing a solution based on leading technologies from Microsoft (SQL Server and Exchange Server), ESRI (ArcGIS Server) and Geosoft (DAP Server). Having recently deployed a very similar solution for the Ugandan Department of Geological Survey and Mines, we look forward to another successful implementation of our enterprise approach to effective geoscience data management.” said Mr Bill Feast, Managing Director of Spatial Dimension.
About the Ghanaian Mining Sector Support Programme
The European Union has provided funding to the Government of Ghana, under a Mining Sector Support Programme (MSSP) to sustain the country’s mining sector economic performance and alleviate poverty by increasing employment and to mitigate the mines’ negative environmental impacts. The specific purpose is to enhance institutional capacities within the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources to effectively promote and regulate the mineral resources sector in order to reverse trends of reduced private-sector mineral exploration, while facilitating the development of sustainable medium-term projects.
