Elsevier integrates GIS software, databases to reduce geoscientists’ research time

12/9/2019

NEW YORK – Elsevier announced the integration of Geofacets, its information solution for exploration and development, with ArcGIS, the flagship product of Esri, the global market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software. The new plug-in functionality, called Geofacets for ArcGIS, which was introduced earlier this year, gives geoscientists the ability to make more informed exploration decisions and reduce risk thanks to Geofacets’ 1.9m maps, figures and tables, without ever having to leave the application to search. The integration delivers a smooth and intuitive user experience, enabling users to go from hypothesis to validation to analysis, faster than ever. 

Currently geoscientists spend up to 80% of their time searching for and formatting geoscience information and data as they work on tackling a variety of major problems, including volatile oil and gas market conditions and reduced academic research budgets. Geofacets has been designed to help oil and gas companies prioritize opportunities, optimize resources and manage risk. It combines a vast, vetted library of maps, figures and tables with powerful location-based search, so companies find information fast. Whether georeferencing maps or structuring tabular data, Geofacets formats content so it’s easier to integrate and analyze.

Geofacets for ArcGIS provides users with one primary information solution that combines the mapping and analysis capabilities of ArcGIS, with the information and data discovery solutions of Geofacets. This facilitates increased user focus, and efficient knowledge management and collaboration, and means that users can spend more time analyzing and acting on information instead of searching for it. The single interface means those companies which rely on data from ArcGIS to support their decision making can optimize operations, decrease risk and increase geoscientists’ productivity by allowing them to spatially search for validated maps, figures and tables all in one place. The plug-in will also enable users to compare their proprietary models and information with validated insights from across the globe.
