Public Data Sources

There are several goverment or other public data sources that provide open and free to use map and bathymetry data that can be useful for your Field Development projects. As Field Activity Planner allows you to connect to WMS (Web Mapping Services) and WFS (Web Feature) services these data sources are easy to use to enrich your field layout. You can also find free Bathymetry data around the world accessible in the samae fashion.

Coordinate translation

We often use online services for coordinate conversion where appropriate e.g. to find what CRS (Coordinate Reference System) to put in the Project Settings so e.g. Bathymetry data loaded as GeoTIFF will be loaded correctly.

ESPG.IO

ESPG simplifies discovery of coordinate reference systems utilized all over the world for creating maps and geodata and for identifying geo-position. It is a practical tool for anybody interested in cartography and digital map making, who needs to know exact latitude and longitude values for numerical coordinates in different spatial reference systems. Included map application allows to show the precise location anywhere on the planet also visually.

WMS

The use of geography data is becoming more and more important for oil and gas operators and service providers to make informed decisions. This can be in terms of locating and extracting new resources, better field design and planning, information retrieval and offers deeper insight into relationships and patterns as part of everyday operations. You can add a map layer to Field Activity Planner using the WMS (Web Mapping Service) to Add a WMS Layer.

NPD

If you are working on project on the Norwegian continental shelf you can now access the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate open map service and visualize information such as wellbores, surveys, fields and discoveries, production licenses, agreement-based areas, permanent facilities and more as part of your layout to facilitate more effective discussions for e.g. equipment and piping scenarios.

They provide the following map services:

GeoNorge

Geonorge is the national website for map data and other location information in Norway. Users of map data can search for any such information available and access it here.

WFS

FieldAP supports direct import from WFS (read: Web Feature Service) mapping servers/services such as e.g. ArcGIS. This means you can directly import Web Mapping Features as vector data e.g. existing pipeline data as new connections in FieldAP. Read more about Using WFS

Bathymetry

FieldAP is able to ingest bathymetry as x,y,z data (pointclouds) or as GeoTIFF files. FutureOn has used the GeoTIFF datasets from the following providers below succesfully. Read more information about loading 3D surface. Note! The right CRS (Coordinate Reference System) has to be defined in the project settings. See General Settings.
