Turning Seismic Data into a Voxel Layer in ArcGIS Pro

In order to help exploration geoscientists better visualise key 3D seismic data within GIS, we recently experimented with importing seismic data into a voxel data cube for viewing in an ArcGIS Pro 3D scene.   A voxel layer represents multidimensional spatial and temporal information in a 3D volumetric visualization. For example, think of a room. Imagine the room divided up into points, each, say, one metre apart. Every point will…

Using drone video data in the ArcGIS platform

A lot of video recording devices (dash cams, drones and action cameras such as GoPro) now also record a range of metadata along with the video file, such as spatial information that we can use to locate the video and incorporate it into a Geographic Information System, or GIS.  In this blog series we’re sharing our progress on an…

Using ‘Dash Cam’ Video Data in the ArcGIS platform

A lot of video recording devices (dash cams, drones and action cameras such as GoPro) now also record a range of metadata along with the video file, such as spatial information that we can use to locate the video and incorporate it into a Geographic Information System, or GIS.   In this blog series we share an innovation project that looks at using video data captured by a variety of devices within the ArcGIS platform.   In this first blog post we will look at videos from a dash cam device. We will first look at…

Mapping Rail Freight Routes

Exprodat’s parent company Getech recently announced its acquisition of H2Green, which is building a network of production, storage and refuelling infrastructure to service the emergent hydrogen economy. Over the past 6 months, we applied our geospatial skills to help H2 Green identify strategic locations to service future hydrogen demand. One of the many strands in…

Getech and IGA to Further the Use of Clean Geothermal Energy

Getech, a provider of data, knowledge and software to the energy industry, is pleased to announce that it will collaborate with the International Geothermal Association (IGA), to further the worldwide promotion of geothermal energy. The IGA works to educate companies and governments around the world on the benefits and commercial potential of this clean energy source. By…

Quick Change Detection using Layer Blending

One of the capabilities introduced to ArcGIS Pro 2.7 is Layer and Feature Blending. This is something that will be familiar to anyone who has used photo editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop.   Blending presents a variety of new options for visualization, and so Layer blending can be especially useful for displaying raster data and hillshading.  Another possibility is to use blending for quick pass change detection. With blending there is no requirement to perform analysis to…

Exprodat Enhances Access to Planet Imagery for Esri Users

Planet, a leading provider of satellite imagery and geospatial solutions, is committed to delivering the necessary tools and software needed for their users to easily gather valuable insights from satellite data. To further this effort, Planet engaged London-based Esri gold partner Exprodat to develop an enhanced version of its ArcGIS Pro add-in – an upgrade…

Creating Elevation Profiles in ArcGIS Pro – Part II

Exploratory 3D Analysis Elevation Profile In our previous blog, we looked at existing methods for creating elevations profiles in ArcGIS Pro. Here, we look at a method new to ArcGIS Pro 2.7 – Exploratory 3D Analysis, which includes the interactive Elevation Profile tool.     Unlike the Ready-To-Use tool, Exploratory Analysis does not use ArcGIS…

Creating Elevation Profiles in ArcGIS Pro – Part I

Elevation profiles were referred to as profile graphs in previous versions of ArcGIS Pro as they were the closest counterpart to elevation profiles in ArcMap. ArcGIS Pro 2.7 has introduced a new Elevation Profiles tool which will be more familiar to ArcMap users. In this and the next blog, we’ll explain the differences between the…
