Hi, I am currently working as an intern for an oil company and have been showing them some of the things you can do with ArcGIS, so far I have done just basic maps, showing the advantages of mapping with ArcMap over their mapping programs, I have also been using ArcScene to make 3-D maps of subsurface formations, which included well bore paths for strait and horizontal wells. However this is where I ran out of ideas. Has anyone else on here used ArcGIS in the oil industry more on the exploration side? I have seen some stuff about mapping seismic surveys, and I am just looking for more ideas of what I can map and show them that could help me turn this internship into a full time job.
Thanks for any help!
