Applus+ currently deploy Graphic Information System (GIS) mapping to track all field assets related to the petroleum industry. GIS for oil and gas assets include pipelines, fittings, gauge settings, lease information, tank farms, Cogen plants and sensitive receptors. The geomatics surveying services at Applus+ utilises industry-standard ESRI software for GIS data collection, storage and retrieval. This data can be made available via the InSite application, transferred directly to the client or served as a hybrid solution. The field collections are performed by trained and certified GPS Technicians with Trimble GEO units with accuracy down to 1 foot. Applus+ have been performing services in geomatics surveying since 2007, and we have become a reference for our GIS work.
Geomatics surveying and GIS mapping have many business applications. The majority of our GIS mapping work consists of documenting existing assets. We also perform pipeline GIS mapping to track and document construction projects, routing/easement and optimisation of pipeline routes. Geomatics surveying also has many uses in the field of environmental regulation and compliance.
The benefits of deploying a team of GIS surveying and geomatics experts from Applus+ include:
