Esri Energy Resources GIS Conference
Visit Geonamic at booth #701 during the entirety of the conference. We are especially excited to be a part of three different selected presentation slots that we hope you can attend:

Wednesday, April 24th 4:30-5:30pm, Grand Ballroom C
Women in Pipeline GIS, featuring Jackie Smith, Project Manager/GIS Consultant from Geonamic

In an era where diversity and inclusion are critical components of success, this panel discussion will highlight the significance of women’s contributions to the pipeline businesses and specifically in GIS. Women bring unique perspectives and insights to the pipeline industry, enriching its capabilities for innovation and progress. The pivotal role women play in fostering business diversity and driving innovation in this sector will be a focus for discussion. By amplifying the role of women, we pave the way for a more inclusive and equitable business environment that benefits everyone.

Thursday, April 25th 10:30-11:30am, Grand Ballroom C

Join us for a deeper dive on how Esri ArcGIS Pro is used to maintain regulatory compliance for HCA identification and management. The presentation will include an overview of the process, a demo of HCA gas and liquid analysis with ArcGIS Pro, a short description of the APR tool used to complete this process, and a demonstration of the loading process.

Data Integration & Automation; Integrating In-line Inspection Data with ArcGIS
Presented by: Jeffery Watson, TITLE?, Buckeye Partners and Yi Yang, Project Manager & Consultant, Geonamic

The integration of ILI data is a crucial step for Pipeline Integrity Management, laying the foundation for more in-depth analysis and informed decisions. Leveraging the capabilities of the ArcGIS Maps SDK, ILI data can be seamlessly integrated with the GIS System of Record, providing valuable insights on ILI features that meet certain DOT or operator criteria. The presentation will provide an overview of the integration and analysis process, and a discussion of how the results are incorporated in Buckeye GIS and integrity workflows.
