London, United Kingdom, 5th May 2010 – Exprodat today announces the release of version 201 of KBridge, software for converting data between Seismic Micro-Technology’s KINGDOM® and ArcGIS® Desktop from ESRI®. KBridge allows users to transfer their KINGDOM well, seismic and interpretation data to ArcMap™, and vice versa.
KBridge is designed to provide a low cost alternative to heavyweight data integration technologies, enabling end-users to take control of data connectivity rather than rely on enterprise level connections. With this streamlined data integration workflow users are able to deploy the powerful spatial analysis capabilities provided by ArcGIS on their KINGDOM project data.
Exprodat’s Technical Director, Chris Jepps, says, “Getting data from the integrated interpretation suites commonly seen within the E&P sector into GIS can be a challenging and sometimes time consuming task. With KBridge users can easily import KINGDOM project wells, seismic, culture and interpretation data to their ArcMap session. Data can be imported to shapefile or File Geodatabase formats, and is automatically tagged with ArcGIS metadata, ensuring an audit trail of its data provenance.”
Exprodat’s software suite is made up of a number of extensions to ESRI’s ArcGIS Desktop that provide ‘out-of-the-box’ functionality designed specifically for the needs of the petroleum sector. The software is data independent and allows E&P companies to integrate vendor data with in-house datasets for use in GIS-based spatial analysis.
ArcGIS is a scalable family of software products comprising a complete geographic information system (GIS) built on industry standards. ArcGIS is used for the creation, management, integration, analysis, display, and dissemination of spatial data. Visualization, editing, and analysis, along with advanced data management, distinguish the ArcGIS software family as the leading GIS software. Much more than a specialized offering for a small niche of specialists, ArcGIS is designed as a scalable system that can be deployed in every organization, from an individual desktop to a globally distributed network of people.
