 The integration of oilfield Previous HitdataNext Hit becomes mandatory especially in applications that require solutions based on multidisciplinary Previous HitdataNext Hit. These Previous HitdataNext Hit normally stored in various formats at different scales are difficult to combine in one package. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has proved to be very successful in managing and analyzing multisource Previous HitdataNext Hit. Today’s systems take advantage of the high speed and processing power of computers to process large Previous HitdataNext Hit sets and use state-of-the-art Object Relational Database Management Systems, (ORDBMS) to store and retrieve information. GIS are employed to integrate multi-scale multidisciplinary oilfield information. Regional and sub-regional information including remote sensing imagery, geologic and topographic maps, and surface structural maps are integrated with subsurface information e.g. well-Previous HitdataNext Hit, formation tops, seismic maps as well as high resolution rock-based information (plug and core based description). The system encompasses multi-scale information in one graphic user interface where the user can leap from low-resolution regional or sub-regional to high-resolution plug-based information. The raster processing engine of the GIS enables the creation of the isopachs grids (maps) on the fly from formation top Previous HitdataNext Hit. This is only one Previous HitexampleNext Hit of many in map topology that GIS can provide for the geologist. This application allows using GIS at all project stages from Previous HitfieldNext Hit mapping and Previous HitdataNext Hit collection to Previous HitdataNext Hit management and finally to 3D displays, management, and analysis of Previous HitdataTop.
