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

[Update - stay tuned for Part IV adding seismic, then Part V infrastructure...]

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 propectors 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.

A tale of two cities, or Bauhaus for maps

I attended two shows back-to-back in London yesterday. Esri(UK) Annual Conference was daytime at the QE2 Centre in Westminster a stone's throw from the Parliament. London Geomob was that evening in Shoreditch, the swanky London digital hub where Ordnance Survey just opened the Geovation Hub.
If the 20 min tube ride in between might have been through a wormhole, such was the contrast, both meetups strove to do the same thing, substituting maps for arts as the Bauhaus movement"founded with the idea of creating a 'total' work of art in which all arts, including architecture, would eventually be brought together".

Wikimedia European History Map over almost 2500 years

[Update: Posted a "how-to" on the companion  map blog for longer pieces, enjoy...]

Stumbled across this really cool Wikimedia Atlas of European maps. Downloaded the images that seem to come from one Atlas, or are similarly styled and in Lambert Conformable Conical projection. I rubber sheeted them in Esri ArcMap and composited each map sheet in YouTube - if you squint you'll see the four red dots I used as projection reference.

Releasing data really works, Part VII

And now for something completely different - the original posts until Part VI are listed below - I ran across a nice map of Steve Feldman's: He also tried out free data and software to map UK flood maps, an up-scaled version not for professional re-use.
