ACCURATE & INTUITIVE DATABASE DESIGN – FULLY CUSTOMIZED OIL & GAS INFRASTRUCTURE MAP CLASSIFICATION
Planimetric maps are essential to support planning and decision-making across the entire life cycle of oil & gas operations, including exploration, infrastructure management, environmental planning and spatial analysis requirements. Advanced Sanborn feature extraction methodologies ensure fully customizable maps featuring layers that can be grouped and classified to optimally display data for analysis and viewing. Extracted features also are used to populate easily referenced geo-coded databases in tabular formats. The map image and simplified database below demonstrate just a few of the basic feature classifications that can be extracted from oil & gas infrastructure maps.
SANBORN ASSET DATABASE FEATURES:
- Enhanced editing and QC functions
- True polygon topology
- Programming functions
- Optional attribution
- Attribute name, type, suffix, location data
- Customizable attribution for oil & gas infrastructure, such as: Pipelines, junctions, valves, well-heads, pumps, storage tanks, emergency infrastructure, refinery infrastructure, roads, buildings, structures, environmental protection features, utility poles, communication towers, etc.
- Hydro centerlines are hand-placed through bodies of water for improved aesthetic appearance
PRECISE FEATURE EXTRACTION ENABLES SUPERIOR MAP DETAILS FOR OIL & GAS INFRASTRUCTURE
Sanborn combines proprietary processing techniques, photogrammetric compilation and GIS-based mapping methodologies to extract features from high-resolution aerial imagery. The resulting planimetric data are used to create highly detailed georeferenced maps that accurately portray the horizontal position of features on the Earth’s surface. Commonly mapped oil & gas features include:
- Emergency Mgmt. Facilities
- Flare Stacks
- Pipeline Junctions
- Storage Tanks
- Pumping Rigs
- Power Stations
- Environmentally Regulated Areas
- Fuel Stations
- Maintenance Facilities
- Port / Shipping Infrastructure
Sanborn offers proven geospatial products & services for oil & gas industries that include:
Orthoimagery provides a geospatially accurate visual representation of oil & gas infrastructure in context with population centers, roadways, and naturally occuring terrain and geological features. In addition, valuable planimetric features can be extracted from orthos to create accurate / current maps of roads, structures, pipelines, and other oil & gas infrastructure critical to safe, efficient operations.
LIDAR / ELEVATION DSM
LiDAR derived Digital Terrain Models are a DEMs that feature enhanced terrain data that creates greater accuracy using additional terrain-defining information. Sanborn creates high quality Digital Elevation and Digital Terrain Models (DEMs / DTMs) to support specialized applications needed for oil & gas operations, such as, orthorectification, and contours generation. DEMs and DTMs also can be aid in construction planning, environmental impact studies, and infrastructure site planning.
The Sanborn Oblique Imagery solution delivers multiple aerial views of any oil & gas location in one acquisition flight. Employing five separate digital camera views to capture oblique and nadir (straight-down) views, obliques allow for measurement and analysis of all sides structures and ground features. Provided with Sanborn Oblique Imagery is the Sanborn Oblique Analyst, featuring a suite of easy-to-use measurement and analysis tools accessed through any web browser.
Sanborn offers 3D Visualization products and services applicable for a variety of to oil & gas operations. We model buildings and oil & gas infrastructure such as pipelines, refineries, storage facilities, etc., to five available levels of detail (LoD1-LoD5). The resulting 3D datasets are deliverable for display as accurate, geo-registered (x,y,z) models ready for seamless integration into any 3D application software or viewers.
