The ILRR is intended to be used by provincial government staff, other levels of government (municipal and federal), industry, professionals, and the public using a standard internet browser.
The ILRR provides a suite of access and reporting tools to meet a variety of user needs (Appendix A provides some examples of ILRR screens):
The ILRR also focused on ease of use and implementation support through an ILRR help desk, web based training, metadata, on-line help, glossaries, and a section on "known data problems".
The ILRR systems architecture focused on leveraging proven standards and methodologies to avoid surprises and ensure the project met the timelines, budget limits and met reliability standards for the users.
The ILRR application is made up of a number of application components (refer to figure 3 for a diagram showing the technical solution).
Prior to project completion in April 2007, the government will be amending legislation and adding regulations that will require all interest granting agencies to provide timely information to the ILRR in electronic format.
The solution also had to ensure data availability, currency and accuracy in the ILRR.
During the business requirement stage, users indicated that ideally the ILRR would provide them with information on rights and interests on Crown land (the ILRR mandate), but they also wanted to include information on private land ownership and property assessment data.
The ILRR goal is to display a spatial extent for every survey or interest parcel.
To provide users with the information they requested, the decision was made have the ILRR display the location of the private parcels where they were available and to display the primary Crown land parcel where the information was not available (the location of the specific private parcel was at least narrowed down to being located with the area of the primary).
forests used mostly green and mineral titles generally used pink) and they wanted the ILRR to have a similar feel to their own systems.
These systems along with a variety of others provide excellent coverage of their specific data set; the ILRR brings data from all the systems together, and layers the data over a cadastral fabric providing spatial information for all interests.
