GIS platform to integrate blockchain

February 3rd, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Geospatial Corporation will be integrating blockchain technology (the software behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency) with GeoUnderground, providing a cloud-based locational software platform allowing energy companies a secure way to manage contracts, assure provenance and track asset maintenance. The integration will allow the company to provide a seamless sharing of constantly updated locational data, status of each asset and each contract, along with the verification and history of each piece of equipment, pipeline and property status, via the cloud. GeoUnderground, designed around the Google Maps API, is the company’s cloud-based GIS platform that, when integrated with blockchain technology, will provide clients with a total solution to their underground and above-ground asset management and location needs. Geospatial Corporation utilises integrated technologies to determine the accurate location and position of underground pipelines, conduits and other underground infrastructure data allowing the creation of accurate 3D digital maps and models of underground infrastructure. The integration of blockchain with the GIS platform has the potential to bring positive change to the global oil and gas industry.
