Then• Oil is found in the minds of men – Wallace E. Pratt• We usually find oil in new places with new ideas. When we go to a new area we can find oil with an old idea. Sometimes we also find oil in an old place with a new idea, but we seldom find much oil in an old place with an old idea – Parke A. Dickey

Testimonial"GB Petroleum plc (GBP) purchased a license of oilelefant Version 1.0 in June2007. The software will form the basis of a fully electronic database system forGBPs expanding portfolio of licenses, wells and seismic data, greatly reducing theneed for hardcopy-based storage facilities. Following a straightforward installationprocess, with remote guidance from Interactive Net Mappings experts, thepackage has been both easy and intuitive to use, even for staff with no previousGIS system experience.The software has the flexibility to cater for various input coordinates andprojection systems and transforms these to a geo-spatially correct, standardisedWGS-84 global projection for consistency purposes. All input data is then displayedvisually on a fully interactive global map, with zoom and drag functionality, makingit easy to determine where and what types of data are available. The software isalso available remotely to travelling staff, assuming an internet connection isavailable.Future releases of the software will allow the data contained within the databaseto be queried and listed, simply by pointing and clicking on a map symbol. Helphas always been available when required, using the dedicated support email andphone contacts list provided by Interactive Net Mapping. Overall, GBP would fullyrecommend the oilelefant software to similar start-up or small independent E&Pcompanies wanting a well-priced and expandable GIS package."
