Screen-Shot-2014-10-06-at-5.23.45-PM[1]MATRIC’s Aaron Barkhurst co-presented with the Department of Energy (DoE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) at the Esri International User Conference in San Diego, Calif., in July. The topic of the discussion: “Geocube”, a configurable web-mapping application that offers users the ability to integrate a wide range of spatial data and geographic information system (GIS) tasks into an intuitive map viewer.

The range of interest in energy-related activities across the U.S., including research, planning, response assessments, etc., highlights the need for web mapping applications capable of meeting this broad array of user needs. Geocube was developed to fill this gap by providing a highly customizable, flexible web mapping application that concatenates commonly used spatial data and information into an application that supports a variety of technical users and purposes.

Geocube connects users to data and information spanning from subsurface to the surface via the Energy Data eXchange (EDX), integrating its online search capabilities and near real-time data feeds. Users can create and download custom maps consisting of spatial elements of interest.
