|With a view to encouraging good practice within the oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) sector, the emphasis in this course is on developing the ArcGIS Desktop skills you need to successfully manage coordinate reference systems (CRS) issues within ArcView. All spatial data is concerned with location on the surface of the earth and this "position" is governed by the parameters of the CRS employed. If you do not manage coordinate reference systems correctly, your data could be incorrectly located with the potential for costly disasters and mistakes, such as drilling in the wrong location, damage to existing infrastructure, incorrect positioning of geohazards, interpretation and modeling in wrong location, and incorrect reserves calculation.|
Data management, IT, geoscience, and other professionals and support staff who are going to be building and managing spatial data for specific projects, assets, or company-wide data stores and need to be able to acquire the relevant ArcGIS skills and knowledge.
