Intermediate course for geoscientists and data managers
Learn to manage coordinate reference systems and ensure that your data is positioned correctly.
The emphasis in this course is on developing the ArcGIS for Desktop (ArcMap) skills you need to successfully manage coordinate reference system (CRS) issues by encouraging good practice within the oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) sector.
All spatial data is concerned with location on, above or below the surface of the earth and this ‘position’ is governed by the parameters of the CRS employed. If you do not manage CRSs correctly, your data could be incorrectly located increasing the potential for costly disasters and mistakes such as:
Targeted training taught by instructors experienced in your industry.
Instructor-led classroom courses delivered in person, or online in real-time.
Live presentations and demonstrations.
Uses industry standard ArcGIS Desktop software (ArcGIS Pro or ArcMap).
Hands-on exercises to learn by doing, with step-by-step instructions for using ArcGIS in common Energy workflows.
Learning pathways to effectively manage geospatial data and use ArcGIS within geoscience workflows.
In-house and public courses available.
Participants attending this course should have completed an introductory ArcGIS for Desktop course or already be familiar with ArcGIS for Desktop or equivalent mapping software. Although petroleum exploration and production sector knowledge is not required, this course is geared towards assisting participants apply the EPSG developed guidelines on the use of CRSs within the ArcGIS for Desktop environment.
Data management, IT, geoscience and other professionals and support staff who are going to be working with spatial datasets of varied coordinate reference systems and need to be able to acquire the relevant ArcGIS for Desktop skills and knowledge.
Focuses on the application of CRSs for the E&P industry
Uses industry standard ArcGIS for Desktop tools from Esri (ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcToolbox)
One-day intensive course
Instructor-led hands-on learning by ‘doing’
Trainer demonstrations and course validation questions
Describe the geoid, ellipsoid and datum using OGP terminology
Employ the ArcGIS Define Projection tool to set the CRS for a given layer
