Event description
This is an entry level course that teaches you how to use Esri's ArcGIS Pro for oil and gas exploration and production.

About this event

This is an entry level course that teaches you how to use Esri's ArcGIS Pro for oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) activities whilst working with petroleum industry spatial data and workflows. This course allows you to explore the benefits in applying Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to your petroleum workflows whilst exploring the functionality available in the new ArcGIS Pro application.

Besides using the basic functionality offered by ArcGIS for Desktop that allows you to integrate spatial and non-spatial data and produce information for decision-making, ArcGIS Pro also allows you to store as many maps and layouts as you need in the same project, view 2D and 3D data simultaneously and create tasks to automate workflows. You can also package your projects to collaborate with others, or share your work as web maps and web layers. ArcGIS Pro can use local data, as well as content from ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS.

In addition to this, ArcGIS Pro is a 64-bit multithreaded application, delivering the kind of high performance that G&G staff in the petroleum sector have come to expect.

Virtual Classroom

Our instructor-led Virtual Classroom courses are delivered online in real-time over the Internet. The courses are led by an Exprodat trainer, just like a standard classroom-based event, who is on-hand at all times to answer questions and interact with you during the training.

All software and data are hosted remotely – you just need a browser – but don’t worry, the instructor can still monitor your computer and help out if you need assistance during the hands-on exercises.

• No need to travel, reduced participation costs.

• Hands-on learning by doing, using Exprodat’s industry-specific ArcGIS training courses.

• Participate in class discussions, ask the instructor questions.


Participants attending this course should have completed an introductory ArcGIS for Desktop course or already be familiar with ArcGIS for Desktop or equivalent mapping software. Although petroleum exploration and production sector knowledge is not required, this course is geared towards assisting participants apply the EPSG developed guidelines on the use of CRSs within the ArcGIS for Desktop environment.

Intended audience

Data management, IT, geoscience and other professionals and support staff who are going to be working with spatial datasets of varied coordinate reference systems and need to be able to acquire the relevant ArcGIS for Desktop skills and knowledge.

• Focuses on the application of CRSs for the E&P industry

• Uses industry standard ArcGIS for Desktop tools from Esri (ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcToolbox)

• One-day intensive course

• Instructor-led hands-on learning by ‘doing’

• Trainer demonstrations and course validation questions


1. Describe the geoid, ellipsoid and datum using OGP terminology

2. Employ the ArcGIS Define Projection tool to set the CRS for a given layer

3. Illustrate three projection surfaces, orientations and focal points used to describe projections

4. Discuss how the UTM projection system minimizes distortion within each zone

5. Independently establish distortion in map projections using Tissot’s Indicatrices

6. Operate the Feature and Raster Projection tools to undertake accurate coordinate transformations and conversions

7. Differentiate between coordinate transformations and coordinate conversions

8. Demonstrate accurate ‘on-the-fly’ projection using the Data Frame transformation settings

9. Calculate area and length fields using the Field Calculator in various linear units

10. Apply the EPSG registry and Areas of Use polygons to select the appropriate CRS and transformation for your project area

Participants will

• Learn fundamental ArcGIS Pro functionality

• Work with E&P datasets and apply typical E&P workflows

• Understand Esri's spatial data storage terminology

• Learn how to import ArcMap map documents into ArcGIS Pro

• Create an ArcGIS Pro project, containing a 2D Map, 3D Scene and a Layout

• Capture a geoprocessing workflow in a Task

• Create and share a Web Map
