Visualising Data in ArcGIS Maps for PowerBI

For those not familiar with Microsoft PowerBI, it is a dashboard application that allows users to create a plethora of views of tabular data. This is done through the use of Visualizations. Data inputs can range from a simple CSV file to enterprise databases. Many of these Visualizations are in the form of graphs. The usual suspects (bar, line and pie) are included. Naturally,…

As we have just released version 2.1 of Unconventionals Analyst for ArcGIS Pro, I’d like to highlight some of my favorite new features so you can check them out when you install the latest software…   1 – Analyze Well Relationships tool A big challenge in the industry at the moment is identifying initial well/infill well relationships to predict performance interference and recovery reduction. In response to this, we created the Analyze Wells Relationships tool which…

Seismic Data as Voxel Layer

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 one metre apart. Every point…

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…
