Grid Migration

Changing land grids is a recurring topic in the natural resource industry. A desire to change arises for a variety of reasons. Your company may have been using a public or an internal source, and now your holdings have expanded and there is a need to use better, maintained, and seamless data. You may use data from another vendor and now wish to take advantage of WhiteStar Lot and Tract data for more precise automapping, or you may be tired of paying far too much under another vendor’s licensing agreement and wish to save your company tens of thousands of dollars...

Associated processing software was developed by Robert C. White Jr., President and CEO of The WhiteStar... READ MORE

Geospatial Wisdom: Dig into WhiteStar Wells

An exploration project will probably not get very far if a critical pipeline doesn’t show up or you’re missing a well or two on your map... READ MORE

Breaking Down Barriers to Collaboration

Is inter-departmental collaboration just a dream? Or can it become a reality? In my last column, I introduced the concept of collaboration as a realistic goal of upstream E&P efforts thanks to GIS map servers and web mapping services (WMS). Traditionally, geophysicists, geologists, and land men have operated independently of one another, each with their own departmental goals, management and budgets...READ MORE

New Geospatial Technologies Enable Collaboration

Technologies such as GIS map servers and web mapping services (WMS) are making it easier for E&P organizations to collaborate on mapping projects. But some companies are learning that paving the way for collaboration often takes more than new technology. It may require a sea-level change in attitude across the enterprise...READ MORE
