Oil and Gas Surveying: What You Should Know

pipeline land surveying (1)Accurate mapping is crucial to the success of all oil and gas projects. Landpoint provides the most accurate and detailed maps possible by utilizing sophisticated GIS technology.These maps and tools help land departments plan their oil and gas development projects better, organize data, and build infrastructure.

GIS Mapping for Land Departments in Oil and Gas Projects

When a land department contacts Landpoint to assist in the development of infrastructure projects, our team leverages GIS mapping technologies to produce highly accurate and detailed maps. While traditional land surveying firms only produce a simple PDF plat, Landpoint’s GIS technologies produce maps and visualizations that make it easy to analyze and assess different map types and data sets while still providing the same deliverables that agents are accustomed to receiving. The large amount of data collected by survey crews on the ground is seamlessly transferred to GIS databases in our private cloud, making the information accessible to authorized parties at any time from any device. All you need to access the maps and data is a device with an Internet connecting, such as a tablet or smartphone. This accessibility coupled with the high level of detail provided by GIS technologies makes for faster, more efficient and more effective project planning and execution. Check out this demo that shows the data we manage, including well locations, ownership, pipeline centerlines and pipeline right of ways.
