Speaking at the ESRI Australia Resources Symposium this month, Grant Eggleton outlined ISS Australia’s work for Santos on the development of a bespoke spatial data integration environment for the web. Santos is using ISS’ BabelFish Aspect (BFA) data integration toolkit to combine geospatial and spatially-referenced unstructured data such as maps, documents, reports and real-time telemetry.
BFA combines information from multiple data-sources into a single, user-defined integrated view. Data types include geological cross sections, seismic sections, wireline logs, documents and ESRI GIS maps. A tree menu facilitates navigation and display. According to Eggleton, the ability to store and overlay information from different systems enhances knowledge management and retention.
BFA combines GIS data with non-spatial data sources, such as real-time systems and document repositories. Map data, documents and real-time data are selected and BFA combines the information into a single web view. The tool also tracks static and mobile assets such as wells, equipment and vehicles.
