GIS based database of geological/reserve extent maps for E&P Companies
Authors: Achintya Pal
Final interpretation and reservoir estimate maps of E&P companies, generated in different interpretation and graphics packages, are stored as CGM files. However, unlike time/depth maps, some reservoir contour maps are not represented by polylines or polygons but a series of control points out of which actual shapes are to be reconstructed as Bezier Curves. CGM file decoding of graphics elements and reconstruction of Bezier curves are keys to creating a corporate database of these maps in ArcGIS.
