Weekliii Round-Up: News on Renewable Energy for Offshore Platforms and GIS Technology Uses
5 Questions Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Can Answer
Let's go back to the basic. What is GIS? How can it help your business? What exactly can it help you address? Learn more in this post about the five biggest questions for which Geographic Information System (GIS) and mapping technology has all the answers.
There is a component to spatial data that should not be overlooked – and that is the time it represents. This could be the time the data was collected, the time the features it illustrates were active, etc. By analyzing the relationship between assets (people, places, things) and their location (the where) over a period of time, we can better determine what has - or in some cases, has not - changed.
Here's Why The Greenwich Prime Meridian Is Actually In The Wrong Place
Some experts believe that one of the foundations used to determine map coordinates and time zones is not, in fact, accurate. What does that mean for modern Geographic Information System (GIS) science and technology? Find our more in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.
How did the Victorian astronomers who created the Meridian get their calculations wrong? It comes down to the fact that the Earth is not a perfect sphere.
Oil and Gas Companies Can Power Offshore Platforms With Renewables
Industry giants have seen success in using renewable energy like solar and wind to power onshore drilling equipment. Could this be a solution for offshore Oil and Gas platforms as well? Explore the pro's and con's in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.
