American Energy Mapping (AEM) Revolutionizes GIS Data Acquisition for the Oil and Gas Industry

At a time when Annual GIS Data Licenses are in Turmoil, AEM offers GIS Professionals a Real Solution - GIS Data Ownership

SPRING, Texas, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- American Energy Mapping announced today that it will help clients become actual owners of Energy GIS Data eliminating the need for encumber some and often confusing lease agreements. This will be accomplished through the addition of "perpetual" licenses which allow for GIS Data users to actually own their data rather than "borrow" it for a limited time. "Clients have agreed that GIS data has become more of an "off-the-shelf" commodity," says Damien Wolff, President of AEM, "Energy GIS Data, especially, is available from many different resources. Having the ability to simply purchase an entire infrastructure from one vendor who compiles all this data and know you can keep it, use it, and build on it yourself eliminates the need for long, drawn out data leases. Knowing they never have to return or delete the data provides our customers a level of comfort and security they may never have known."

Mr. Wolff warns of marketing messages meant to keep clients paying for Oil and Gas GIS Data year after year. "There is a lot of talk about "proprietary and secret" ways of collecting or "aggregating" data meant to sway the client into believing that one vendor has some special power over another in gathering information," says Mr. Wolff, "But the plain simple fact is that no vendor holds a secret key. Our GIS clients are smart enough to know how to obtain Energy GIS Data on their own, but they simply do not have the time and are not paid to do this. So they search for a vendor to do it for them. That's where we come in." Mr. Wolff says that allowing clients a perpetual license give them freedom they do not enjoy from other vendors. "No one wants to delete data from all their systems simply because they wish to stop paying for updates that many could perform themselves. That is what an annual data lease is all about…keep paying or delete the data completely. Here at AEM we believe customers should not be held hostage but rather have the opportunity to choose, so we offer both annual and perpetual licenses."

Mr. Wolff adds, "Customers can simply call our office at 832-302-6656, email [email protected] or visit our website at www.americanenergymapping.com  and fill out the request form to begin the process."

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges.
