GIS and other computer scientists at Wood MacKenzie have come up with a way to visualize and interpret 3.5 million geospatial data points on a single, dynamic, digital map, something that had not been possible before.
The work was undertaken on behalf of Wood MacKenzie's clients in the oil and gas industry, but it seems it could be adapted and applied to the power and utility sector, particularly given development and growth of distributed energy resources, smart grids and customer-interactive power networks.
Wood MacKenzie's oil and gas industry clients "want to know just one thing— where to drill their next well. To answer that question, explorers need to be able to see the big picture— hot spots and trends— as well as being able to zoom in on the details of specific sites and wells," Wood MacKenzie relates in a Lens R&D news brief.
