Keeping data current is crucial in exploration. Get bad information and you could end up drilling a well on the wrong lease. So how do you know if your data are up-to-date? We know ours is with more than 20,000 enhancements in the past 36 months gathered from our huge partner network consisting of thousands of customers.
Are you getting this much value from your existing vendor, let alone "free" government data? Buyer beware if you downloaded free data from a government map or survey site longer than a few weeks ago-- it's probably already obsolete as government data change often.
Don't go into the digital wilderness without a good guide. Partnering with WhiteStar means you can explore with confidence that the data we deliver are the most accurate in the industry. So accurate in fact, that even our competitors use it.

Question: Why is lot and tract information so important in evaluating land positions?
Answer: Because you can't know where a specific lot or tract is if you're only given the number. Well and lease descriptions often reference lot numbers. It's a myth that lots 1-4 and 5-7 lie along the north and west sides of a section. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. In complex areas you have to reference the original documents to know where they are.
