Seamless Workflow Integrations

With Geofacets, geoscience maps are not only easily discoverable—but actionable. Geoscientists can integrate georeferenced maps into essential workflow tools, like Petrel* and ArcGIS™, to help compare proprietary models to published information, characterize a geologic basin and more. Tables are also downloadable and can be integrated into spreadsheet software or can be further integrated into GIS software (e.g., if coordinates are available in the table or in the associated maps).
