Weekliii Round-Up: Location Intelligence and Phantom Volcanoes
Let's explore today's #WeekliiiRoundUp brimming with news on new technology for seismic data conversion, new approaches to Geographic Information System (GIS) education, and new updates on our next event.

Well survey and seismic navigation data can be challenging to convert into a file format that your team can readily use for visualization and analysis. This is where applications like the Integrated Geodetics Toolkit shine. Bringing together the most common file formats for this information, Oil and Gas professionals now have the resources they need to transform and convert data into file types that are more readily consumed by the Geographic Information System (GIS) technology for which they need them. Discover more now.
For those who have received education in the Geographic Information Sciences (GIScience) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) fields, you know that universities don't often place importance on the subject. Although more schools have added relevant courses to the curriculum and bolstered offerings of specialized GIS degrees over the years, the majority of these initiatives focus only on the applications and technology - not the ways in which they are applied in the real-world. This looks like it may soon change. Universities like Pennsylvania State University and University of Redlands in California are making strides in better defining education curriculum to includes how the skills garnered through GIS can help businesses with location intelligence. Learn more in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.
There may be even more Oil and Gas resources to be found in the North Sea thanks to three "phantom" volcanoes. Sound spooky? It is just the opposite. Learn more about this topographic wonder in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.
Our team is excited to announce we will be joining the exhibitors at the 2019 Esri Petroleum GIS Conference, or Esri PUG, this year! The conference will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX on May 15 to 16. Stop by Booth #507 to catch up with our team, learning more about the products and services we offer!
#DailyBrainCandiii and #WeekliiiRoundUp are inspired by brain candiii, a division of Integrated Informatics that delivers and develops GIS training courses to meet the needs of Energy and Natural Resources professionals.
