GeoHipster Calendar

Second year one of my maps appears on Atanas Entchev & Co.'s GeoHipster calendar. JIT for Christmas, they're easy to order and make for a lovely present you can actually feel and smell LOL And it supports my friends new venture - that's part of the future IMHO - called print-as-you-go.

You can order it here, and here's a preview from the same site - but please buy it if you want the story - disclosure: I have no business interest in this venture, only my exposure and GeoHipster's.

And here is last year's, if you want to see what this year's will look like:

GIS for oil spill modelling - Part II

This is a follow-up to Part I explaining oilspill modelling using NOAA Gnome modelling software and Kuwaiti ROPME data, all in the public domain. This has now been posted on ArcGIS Online as a time-aware file geodatabase map package. In this video using a dark grey basemap, the map package shows mock oil dispersal via advanced annotation, inversely proportional to time.

Presentated almost five years ago to Kuwait Petroleum Company with local Esri distributor OpenWare, using NOAA oil spill model results in Esri GIS and recorded in YouTube. [The presentation has been updated to reflect additions in Part II.]

A day in the life of a petroleum professional - Part III - shorthand

[Update - A higher level article is published by PPDM Foundations in its Q4 issue]

This is Part III of a "A day in the life of..." posts, to introduce basic petroleum data management for professionals who generate prospects. This is a yet even simpler workflow that helps rapid project start-ups for prospectors rather than data managers.

DaaS BooT (Data as an Asset, Part II)

[Note: this is a re-post from LinkedIn Pulse that requires a user login]

After Das Boot - German U-boat disruptive technology of WWII - it stands here for Data-as-a-Service, Business Opportunity of Things - rather than Internet of Things (IoT); it underscores that without business outcome, we might as well stay home: that is the tenor of GEO Business 2015, in its third year, as it draws together Surveying, BIM, GIS and business.
