GIGS is the Geospatial Integrity of Geoscience Applications checklist from the Joint Industry Project of the Americas Petroleum Survey Group (APSG) and Oil and Gas Provides (OGP) Geomatics Subcommittee. Participating companies include: ExxonMobil, Shell E&P, Devon Energy, BP, BHP Billiton, Marathon Oil Corp, Total E&P, Anadarko Petroleum, Chesapeake Energy, StatoilHydro, and Perenco.
There are three main areas of focus for GIGS with eight sub-areas. The main areas are Interface, Dataset, and Software Application Reviews. Blue Marble will review and test your software as an independent auditor following the GIGS procedures. The goals of GIGS consulting can be summarized as:
This is presented through a summary of the process as satisfaction of the requirements and recommendations of each section of GIGS. Not one software application alone will be compliant on all points, but clearly documenting what your software is compliant with, is the end result.
Reduction and potential elimination of geospatial integrity failures through:
Requirements = mandatory compliance
Recommendations = suggested
Note: The inability of a software program to perform a requirement does not equate to failure; the only failure is not knowing if the application does the requirement correctly.
Deliver the documentation and software your users are asking for.
