Geospatial Index to E&P
Total E&P Nederland B.V.
This project was the implementation of a
solution in which all graphic files of the company’s geosciences division were made easily
searchable by spatial location.
The geoscientists used to search for this type
of information from various sources such as
the technical archive, the drawing office,
and the technical assistants of the geosciences division. Total E&P Netherlands
eliminated manual searches with Project Wise
Now, the documents are linked to a geographical location, so they can be found and
reviewed efficiently and quickly. In most
cases, new projects can greatly benefit from
studies that have been completed in the past.
With the current implementation, old study
results will always be found.
Today, the users at Total E&P Netherlands can
search among tens of thousands of documents with an intuitive Web application in
Internet Explorer. No client software is
required. Entering a few keywords and clicking on a map is enough to find and review
the information of interest. Also, MicroStation
files can be viewed through the
integration with Bentley Publisher.
With ProjectWise Geospatial,
ArcGIS documents can be spatially indexed as well. Even paper
maps and documents can be
found more efficiently with references to their storage location in
the technical archives. ;
