This course provides an overview of the petroleum technology industry. This course is aligned with the textbook: "Fundamentals of Petroleum" by Kate VanDyke. Course author: Lee McMains, lee.mcmains@aims.edu

Gis and gps

In this module we will discuss different tools used to identify, record, and manage locations where petroleum accumulations are likely to be found.

Objective and big questions

At the completion of this module you will be able to:
  • Identify mapping layers using geographic information systems.
  • Perform simple global positioning maneuvers using a handheld GPS device.

As you work through this module please keep the following questions in mind:

  • What is the difference between GIS and GPS?
  • Which is the more "fundamental" technology?
  • Who gathers the data, and what happens to it?
  • How is the data manipulated to produce something meaningful?

a book Reading:

For this module, please begin by reading "Contour Maps and Digital Computer Models" in your textbook. Be sure to read the tables, look at the figures, and study the examples.

a notepad Links:

Please visit the following web page to get a feel for a particular GIS package: What is GIS?

Please watch and study the following videos:

a checklist Self-check:

How many satellites are required for GPS to find a location on the Earth's surface?

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
