Whereoil selected for ArcticWeb project

Semantic technology from Norwegian Kadme will power arctic information portal.

ArcticWeb, a Norwegian Joint Industry Project has selected technology from Kadme to link disparate web resources of use to the consortium. ArcticWeb is to harmonize and publish data from the Norwegian Geological Survey, the Meteorological Institute, the NPD and others. Oil company end users will use the ArcticWeb portal to browse environmental data from the above sources. Data types include oil spill information, oil and gas facilities, pipelines, fishing, recreational areas, wrecks and sailing routes.

Kadme’s Whereoil (formerly K-Map) technology works by adding a semantic layer to public data sources that enables information to be collated and gathered together in a single interface for end users. The Kadme ‘Virtual Warehouse Framework’ was used to power a joint Kestrel-Kadme solution for metadata management (OITJ September 2007). ArcticWeb members include BG, ConocoPhillips, ENI, Lundin, StatoilHydro and Shell. More from www.oilit.com/links/0903_2.
