Weekliii Round-Up: Oil Production from Space and Your #DailyBrainCandiii Fix
Let's wind down the week with a quick read on all the news, posts, and more we have shared throughout the last few days. With topics on what to expect when pursuing custom development services to monitoring oil production from space, it's here. Sit back, relax, and read on!
While the term custom development implies a unique application or solution made just for you, your team, and your company, the process providers take for helping businesses communicate what it is they need and expect out of a project can be very similar across the board. We have outlined five questions that are typically asked of clients throughout this process - and all five are essential to getting the most out of your investment and ensuring the project starts and stays on track.
Oil producers can be a secretive lot, but satellite imaging is offering increasingly detailed reports on what is happening on the ground. For example, satellite imaging can be used to estimate emissions from flares burning billions of cubic meters of natural gas every year offer an indirect look at oil output. Learn more here.
For those struggling to grasp Big Data, there are three key concepts that can help. The vectors of volume, velocity, and variety describe how Big Data is so different from how we have previously understood data management. Learn more in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.
Throughout each week, our team posts several articles that we think are interesting and insightful for those concerned with the topics of technology, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Custom Software Development, and much more. This idea came about from our efforts in educating those in the GIS community through our own BrainCandiii resources. Want to learn more and see all we have shared?
