TENGRAPH Web is a spatial enquiry and mapping system displaying the position of Western Australian mining tenements and petroleum titles in relation to other land information. It provides a current and accurate picture of land under mining activity and is used to determine ground that is available for mineral exploration.

TENGRAPH Web is the replacement for TENGRAPH Online, with access to additional information and datasets. TENGRAPH Online will remain in operation to enable the gradual take-up of the new system.
