GeoScope V4.0—navigating the corporate data ‘archipelago’

Hampton Data’s GIS builds network knowledge base, serves results as WEB 2.0 mashups.

UK-based Hampton Data services has released version 4.0 of its GeoScope GIS-based E&P data management system. The new release crawls network drives, building a ‘knowledge base’ of keywords and spatial metadata. The results can be browsed in a GIS viewer or searched by area of interest, data object, keyword or free text. New relationships can be recorded and data tagged, leaving the original data in situ. The crawler can be used to monitor the network, updating GeoScope in realtime.
