Description

CD reprint of AAPG Computer Applications in Geology No. 4

This publication takes an informative look at the use of computer-based Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the energy industry. This excellent volume is particularly timely in light of the rapidly growing numbers and types of applications of GIS technology. The book’s thoroughly illustrated chapters address the full range of GIS topics, approaches, and philosophies, with special emphasis on the petroleum industry; there is a good mix of theory, applications, resources, and practical advice. Case studies include a regional study, conceptual geological modeling, a field study, reservoir characterization, and more. A general historical overview of GIS technology, trends, and predictions is included. This book will be an invaluable guide to GIS resources and applications for individuals and companies, beginners and specialists. Properly used and integrated, Geographic Information Systems technology can help geoscientists achieve greater success in all aspects of petroleum exploration and development.
