Hi, my name is Andrew Zolnai, Business Development Manager for Oil & Gas
Sector. As a geologist I always found it important to relate powerful software back
to every-day necessities: “It can do all this… but what can it do for my Asset
Team?” In each issue we will post in this column an expert’s opinion, in order to
prompt you to ask questions and get back to us.
Did you know how much you can do with the GIS tools your already have at hand?
This has been presented at the recent Petroleum User GroupCommon Analytic
Workflows for the PUG Community- ?What Comes in the Box. My blog posts
“Simple Reservoir Depletion Modeling” describe how Model Builder, which comes
out-of-the-box in the Spatial Analyst extension, is used for subsurface 3D geologi-
cal modeling: not intended to replace full reservoir modeling, you add the know-
how while Esri provide the tools... and there is no programming!
And did you know that ArcGIS Explorer is the best way to display your 3D layer
package files? rCreating 3D cross sections for use in ArcGIS ExploreNot only is it
the easiest way to display 3D data that is so visually compelling, but you can also
distribute your data for free throughout your organization via the web. Users who
have neither GIS knowledge nor ArcGIS software, will appreciate the powerful yet
simple and intuitive user interface.
