Research Issues on Geovisual Analytics for Petroleum Data Management

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The visual and interaction tools are useful in providing decision-makers with a comprehensive overview of multifaceted information gathered from multiple sources. Petroleum Data Management (PDM) is getting more complex due to the diversity in data providers as well as multiple sources, such as well logs, seismic sections, GIS databases, subsurface 3D cross-sections and other forms of technical reports. This research attempts to introduce Geovisual Analytics as a suitable interactive approach for petroleum exploration decision support. The paper will overview research issues and provide implicit insight on research agenda in this important earth science domain.
