Geofacets for ArcGIS provides users with one primary information solution that combines the mapping and analysis capabilities of ArcGIS, with the information and data discovery solutions of Geofacets. This facilitates increased user focus, and efficient knowledge management and collaboration, and means that users can spend more time analysing and acting on information instead of searching for it. The single interface means those companies which rely on data from ArcGIS to support their decision making can optimise operations, decrease risk and increase geoscientists’ productivity by allowing them to spatially search for validated maps, figures and tables all in one place. The plug-in will also enable users to compare their proprietary models and information with validated insights from across the globe.
“We’re delighted that Geofacets has been elegantly integrated with ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Pro. The easy-to-use interface is a huge increase in usability for the geoscientist using the ArcGIS platform,” said Paul Hartwell, Natural Resources Partner Executive at Esri. “Through this plug-in, more geoscientists will be able to apply the power of location to their work, and to contextualise their findings—which is vital in the high-stakes world of resource exploration.
“The enormous breadth and depth of knowledge in the Geofacets platform will make search and discovery far more comprehensive. The integration means that ArcGIS users can assemble stronger geologic models than ever before, all in one place, and help unleash the potential of data in their exploration efforts.”
“The modern geoscientist is increasingly pressed for time to do more with less while finding innovative ways to transform the energy sector,” said Sumita Singh, Managing Director for Reference Solutions at Elsevier. “Faced with exponential growth in data, it is more important than ever to deliver the right data and insights within their day-to-day workflow. We are focused on providing technology solutions that can meet all of their needs in one place and this is why we’re delighted to not only be integrating Geofacets with ArcGIS, but also to be a Silver Tier partner in the Esri Partner Network. Our partnership with Esri is another element of our continual drive to support geoscientists and help them meet the demands of the future and improve their workflow through seamless access to Geofacets via ArcGIS.”
Currently geoscientists spend up to 80% of their time searching for and formatting geoscience information and data as they work on tackling a variety of major problems, including volatile oil and gas market conditions and reduced academic research budgets. Geofacets has been designed to help oil and gas companies prioritise opportunities, optimise resources and manage risk. It combines a vast, vetted library of maps, figures and tables with powerful location-based search, so companies find information fast. Whether georeferencing maps or structuring tabular data, Geofacets formats content so it’s easier to integrate and analyse.
