Whilst not a blog written out on this site I thought this link was worth sharing. It discusses geodetic integrity and provides some nice insights into geodesy in the Oil and Gas Industry...positional integrity is so important in natural resource exploration and production it forms an essential element of the expensive process of drilling and producing Earth's natural resource.

"Geodetic integrity plays a small but vital part in the success of every E&P venture. It’s basically like Vitamin C: you don’t need much of it, but you can’t live without it. A deficiency in geodetic controls will slowly lead to guaranteed damage: “geo-scurvy”."


The following blog lays out some examples of where positional accuracy has not been good enough outside of the Lake Peigneur Example.
