GIS software for petroleum industry

by Esri     based in Redlands, CALIFORNIA (USA)

For years, petroleum companies have used Esri`s GIS to decide where to drill a well, route a pipeline, build a refinery, and reclaim a site. Today`s GIS provides oil and gas industry solutions throughout the petroleum life cycle. All major oil companies in the world use Esri`s GIS technology to manage their location-based information, from leases, wells, and pipelines to environmental sites, facilities, and retail outlets.

GIS software for water resource industry

by Esri     based in Redlands, CALIFORNIA (USA)

GIS is a powerful tool for developing solutions for water resources such as assessing water quality and managing water resources on a local or regional scale. Hydrologists use GIS technology to integrate various data and applications into one, manageable system. The suite of tools contained in Arc Hydro facilitate the creation, manipulation, and display of hydro features and objects within the ArcGIS environment.

Data analysis and visualization tools for groundwater modeling

by C Tech Development Corporation     based in Henderson, NEVADA (USA)

Groundwater and Solute Transport modeling is a sub discipline of environmental sciences with unique needs. Modeling has long utilized 3D simulations, but the ability to visualize the results has lagged far behind the simulation technology. EVS-PRO and MVS have long offered professional level presentation tools worthy of the current state-of-the-art in modeling, and EnterVol now opens that door to GIS professionals around the world. Visualization of groundwater and solute transport modeling results can be performed from third party modeling systems such as USGS MODFLOW, MT3D, GMS©, Groundwater Vistas and Visual MODFLOW© using C Tech’s tools to convert these modeling outputs into EFF format. In conjunction with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and IT Group, C Tech performed the visualization and animation of the output from a Groundwater Vistas MODFLOW and MT3D99 simulation of a large industrial complex in the central valley area of California.  This site exhibits highly channelized flow which is evidenced by the flow paths. Note that flow in the lower aquifer crosses underneath the upper channels at about 30 degrees!

GIS software for archaeology

by Esri     based in Redlands, CALIFORNIA (USA)

Archaeologists, as researchers and resource managers, understand the importance of geography. Its variables exert a strong influence on human behavior today, and archaeologists are aware of the significance of this influence in the past. Geography also influences the degree of exposure of archaeological sites, and the impacts that they face from human activity and natural forces. GIS facilitates mapping to analyze depositional patterns as well as catalog and quantify artifacts. It can provide a well-structured descriptive and analytical tool for identifying spatial patterns.

Oil & Gas Exploration and Pipeline Imaging

by GeoVantage     based in Peabody, MASSACHUSETTS (USA)

Exploration and Pipeline Imaging

GeoVantage specializes in custom imaging of basins for oil & gas exploration for up to date assessment of drilling activity and logistics. Large tracks of land, at 6 inch or 1 foot resolution, ensure that exploration companies know exactly what is happening in key regions of their lease holds and even those surrounding.

For pipelines, GeoVantage offers quick, efficient capture of intricate pipeline layouts across all of North America and other countries. To ensure timely service, both large and small captures can be collected by a large group of sensors deployed in multiple places.

Oil and Gas Pipeline Imaging and Class Analysis

GeoVantage works closely with firms that specialize in Oil and Gas Pipeline imaging and class analysis. GIS Data Specialists (GDS) is one of those firms. GDS is able to take the GeoVantage high resolution imagery and output the information needed to comply with regulatory or company requirements for reporting.



GIS software for environmental management sector

by Esri     based in Redlands, CALIFORNIA (USA)

As scientists and environmental managers, you use GIS to study the environment, report on environmental phenomena, and model how the environment is responding to natural and man-made factors.

GIS software for mining industry

by Esri     based in Redlands, CALIFORNIA (USA)

The resources in the earth`s crust require sophisticated technology to discover, extract, and manage. Since mining is inherently spatial, requiring accurate knowledge of areas of the earth`s surface and subsurface, geospatial technology is best suited to intelligently oversee all phases of the mine operation. GIS gives mining companies the tools they need to operate mines responsibly and at optimum efficiency. It is a comprehensive, interoperable technology specifically designed to compile, process, display, analyze, and archive volumes of interdisciplinary data.

Evidence for claims of sustainability / responsible stewardship

by Ecometrica     based in London, UNITED KINGDOM

In many land intensive sectors, strict national, regional and global standards and regulations exist guiding how products must be produced. As pressures on land, biodiversity and communities in developing countries become stronger, ever tighter regulations will result. OE can be used to demonstrate compliance with any type of environmental regulation, for example in the areas of biofuels, timber, palm oil, forest protection, and water usage.
