    The system provides for the viewing of various layers of information through an interactive geographical information system. Different layers like, data asset elements (wells and seismic surveys), existing active licenses, basins, national parks, towns and provinces can be overlaid onto base-maps. The database can be queried on availability of existing data within the area of interest.

    Further functionality exists in querying the database through user defined polygons, wildcard multiple asset element definitions and ordering the data through a user registration process.

    Clients ordering data, need to register as a Commercial, Governmental or Academic entity before any orders can be placed.
