2015 Update - A higher level article is published by PPDM Foundations in its Q4 2015 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.

The resulting workflow uses Extract - Transform - Load (ETL) at its simplest:

The rest of the workflow is pretty much the same, and is detailed in the Mind the Map companion blog.  A business-oriented synopsis will be published by PPDM Foundations in its Q3 issue.

STOP PRESSES: Safe Software just published a new eBook, that guides you through  publishing and accessing this sort of data through ArcGIS Online and other services. Stay tuned for further parts of this exercise...
