Further development of Råstof-IT for the regions
Maintenance and further development of Råstof-IT
In 2017, Sweco won the regions’ tender for maintenance, further development and support in relation to the Råstof-IT system for managing resources (also known as ‘RIT’). Råstof-IT is used in the five Danish regions for managing mineral resources.
The system consists of modules for resource planning, case management for mineral resource extraction and a public page companies can use to apply for resource extraction permits.
RIT supports case management in connection with company applications for the extraction of resources, and administration in relation to issued extraction permits.
Since we took over maintenance and further development the system in 2017, one of our key focus areas has been to give users intuitive and efficient digitalisation tools.

Improving the user interface and implementing user-friendly Web GIS tools
In close cooperation with the regions, Sweco has made a great effort to improve RIT. In addition to general maintenance and support, we have focused on improving the user interface – to optimise the workflows for caseworkers and applicants, including the development and implementation of modern, user-friendly Web GIS tools for digitalisation, analysis and visualisation.
The web-based GIS tools have been developed specifically to support the special needs for applications for resource extraction and case management for resource extraction cases.
RIT – a modern system that forms part of the public digital infrastructure
RIT is based on a service-oriented architecture that ensures that common public master data can be used in a seamless environment, where users have access to relevant data from FOT, GST, DAI, etc.
As part of the case management for an application, conflict analysis is performed in relation to various interest areas (over 50 theme layers) using the common public services. Caseworkers also make use of the Danish Register of Underground Cable Owners (LER) in all cases, to investigate whether any cable owner could be in conflict with a given extraction area.
In addition to the RIT contract, we provide support to each region in relation to troubleshooting, conversions, configuration, updates and optimising testing and operating environments.
Regular updates ensure a secure and relevant solution
As part of the agreement between Sweco and the regions, we regularly make new versions of RIT available that the regions can install in their operating environments.
RIT is being developed in an ongoing collaboration, where the regions make requests for new, improved functionality. We also propose development measures to ensure that RIT constantly complies with security requirements and keeps up with developments in general public sector digitalisation.
In this way, we ensure that RIT always remains a relevant and secure solution – both for the regions’ users and external users.
