Ikon Science and FuseIM roll out RokDoc MetaStore

Rock property knowledge base built atop Fuse’s XStrealine data platform.

Ikon Science has partnered with FUSE IM on the RokDoc MetaStore, an ‘open’ knowledge base of rock properties, relationships and analytics. MetaStore’s development was primarily funded by Ikon’s major customers, who helped scope the project.

MetaStore captures rock property data together with interpretations generated in Ikon’s flagship RokDocQED tool along with other sources. MetaStore is based on Fuse’s XStreamline platform and includes an ‘advanced metadata engine’ and GIS-based search and filter tools. The Java-based application provides cross platform Windows/Unix access to public and private cloud-based hosted data from a web browser.

Fuse director David Holmes told Oil IT Journal, ‘XStreamline runs on top of JBoss and the JBPM business process management toolset. We are neutral to the customer’s GIS engine and support publishing through PostGIS and ArcGIS Server. We also recommend the OpenGeo Suite from Boundless which brings together a number of enterprise proven open source GIS components into a single easily manageable configuration. RokDoc users faced two challenges—managing multiple project files (like the Petrel data management problem!) and building a corporate rock physics repository from a collection of spreadsheets.’

Future enhancements will capture more granular rock property data and it will be possible to use MetaStore independently of RokDoc. More from Ikon and Fuse.
