In order to comply with these requirements, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Regions and Tourism operates the geoportal BergIS, which comprises at the moment the following maps:
- Exploration areas
- Mining rights
- Mineral resources owned by the Federal Government
- Extraction operations plans
- Prospecting licences
This geoportal enables a query of the attribute data (person holding mining rights, mineral resource) on the indicated rights, a targeted search for administrative units and/or attribute data, as well as the printing of the map presentations. Apart from the presentation directly on the geoportal the data are also made available as OGC Web Map Service (WMS).
The data of the geoportal are only destined for the purpose of general information and reference is explicitly made to Section 185, para. 2 Mineral Raw Materials Act, as amended.
