Weekliii Round-Up: News on Smart Data's Role in Big Data and Environmental Resource Metadata

It is time to kick back, relax, and catch up on the news and posts we have shared throughout this week. We're diving into the world of Knowledge Management for Environmental Resources, Smart Data, and Canadian pipelines in today's #WeekliiiRoundUp. Read more below!


Big Data vs. Smart Data


Have you heard of "Smart Data"? Turns out, it is Big Data's clean and condensed counterpart. The large volumes of information that synonymous with the Big Data revolution can often be overwhelming. Discover how data analytics plays a role in drilling down through these stores, finding the most useful resources in less time. Learn more in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.


Organizations with less of an understanding of Big Data often collect everything, and then store it in a Data Warehouse, Data Lake, or often what amounts to a Data Swamp. They are collecting Big Data with the intention of using it when they finally make the decision to use it. While these organizations might believe they are collecting years of historical data - in reality, the data may lack quality, or quantity, or may even be in the wrong format. [Keith D. Foote]


Getting More Oil to Market in Canada Requires More Pipelines, NEB Tells Minister


In an effort to get more crude oil to market across Canada, advocates are of pipeline expansion are speaking out. Current systems at maximum capacity, less than ideal reliance on rail, and new technology in optimization are all part of why. Explore more in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.


Knowledge Management for Environmental Resources: Data Discovery


Blog post on the use of the Integrated Marco Studio - including Integrated Marco Desktop - software applications for ArcGIS to manage the Geographic Information System GIS spatial data files required for Environmental and Oil and Gas resources.

The first step to understanding your spatial data is to discover each file on your network and its most important important details. Metadata like location and ownership are key to this process. Let's explore discovering Geographic Information System (GIS) and geospatial data for Environmental resources now in this week's #MeetTheProduct post.
