NTS mapsheet grid for BC. Tantalis is an information system designed specifically for the needs of the complex workings of Crown Land Registry and to provide automated support for all aspects of Crown land administration. It was designed to provide a foundation for integrating spatial data associated with mapping of survey plans and administrative boundaries with attribute data associated with legal documents and administrative records. The system records and tracks the sale, survey, license, access, return, and restriction of Crown land in British Columbia. This new system introduced the capacity for further applications, to revolutionize access and processing of Crown land information.

Purpose

Tantalis is a computerized land information system designed to fulfill desktop access to an integrated database containing all records-both spatial and textual-needed for the business of provincial land administration. The business needs to be supported by Tantalis are diverse and are summarized as follows. - Track applications for the use of Crown land from the point of initial enquiry through to the issuing of legal documents and registration of interest. Tools were needed to support the extensive consultation and evaluation activities that take place during the application process prior to the issuing of any legal documents; - Maintain a registry of interests in Crown land consisting of legal documents associated with all land transactions as well as all historical survey information; - Maintain a spatially continuous fabric of all land parcels, administrative boundaries and reserves over Crown land; - Support the ongoing administration of Crown land tenures.
