Find your answer.

The road to developing a fully optimized network of assets is not always a smooth ride. From grappling with construction in diverse terrain to managing expectations and regulations for which each team is accountable, knowing where to begin or which task to check off the to-do list can be a challenge. We like to think we have the answer to those issues - the ways to approach the most complex of tasks within the Planning Process.

    Integrated Geomancy is designed to make it easier for your team to manage the in's and out's of a Project. We have built it to store input data, output data, and settings inside of an overarching Project Infrastructure. At the highest level, Projects contain everything from data to Scenarios to results and settings. Establishing a Project The only information necessary for creating a Project within Integrated Geomancy is a Digital Elevation Model (DEM), a Polygon Feature Class representing the Study Area, and a name with which it will be referenced from here on out. This is stored at the Project level, along with any supplemental input data like hydrography, environmental zones, and the like. Projects vs. Scenarios Once data has been added to a Project, Scenarios may be created with the intent of generating results for asset placement and optimizations based on the data and circumstances determined by the user. These are meant to test specific instances to see how the end results may be impacted. All results produced are stored within the Project in relation to the applicable Scenario - allowing your team access to all details when needed. Still curious about how this infrastructure works in the grand scheme of all things Geomancy? Learn more on Integrated Informatics' blog.
    The way in which a developing field is planned will differ from project to project. When considering the area, the presence of tie-ins, the possibility of future development, and other factors, our teams must choose the approach that best supports these circumstances. Thankfully, situations where all of the factors must come into play is exactly why Integrated Geomancy was built. Learn more about how this application approaches the Planning Process, including establishing optimizations for Standard Optimization, Backcasting Development, and Forecast Installments.
    There are instances in a Project when your team needs to know how to best develop a Pipeline Gathering System based either on the holistic view of the system or on specific phases of construction. Approaching development from this point of view and incorporating Temporal Analysis processing allows for a more customized and optimized result for your system. The capabilities of Integrated Geomancy allow teams to do this by establishing plans based on either Backcasting Development or Forecast Installments. For those who do not need the option, there is always the tried and true Standard Optimization. Learn more about these processes and Temporal Analysis in general by exploring the Planning Process.
    Designing a model that is as representative of your Study Area as possible is essential to ensuring your team takes advantage of Integrated Geomancy's full capabilities. This application allows you to do this by encouraging the input of a variety of supplemental datasets and constraints atop the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) required for the Project. With over 50 individual data type options, you may include dataset that fall into the following categories: Anthropogenic - One of the most important constraints within the Integrated Geomancy model, it is highly recommended to include as much data as available concerning those populated and utilized zones within the area being studied. Environmental - Conservation and Protected areas are increasingly important to take into consideration when discerning those regions where construction cannot occur. Geotechnical - Fault and seismic data (among other things) can be included. Geology - If available, consider adding depth, thickness, and other geologic data to the model. Hydrography - Add waterbodies, streams, drinking water, and more to your model. Infrastructure - This can include existing roadways, pipelines, and more. Land - In order to properly place Well Pad Sites, Pipeline Gathering Systems, and other assets, it is advised to include datasets representing lease and land within the toolkit. Vegetation - Often reserved for areas that you do not want to consider as potential build location, specify vegetation zones that should be avoided. Wildlife - No matter the size of the animal, the presence of wildlife in an area may impact the likelihood of optimization.
    The concept of "Constructability" sets the stage for siting and routing practices within the Decision Engine operated by the Integrated Geomancy application. It refers to the ease of development and is dependent on those geographic, political, environmental, anthropogenic, etc. barriers present within the Study Area of choice. Our team believes that in order to complete a field successfully, you must first begin with a good foundation. Crazy idea, right? Generated as a raster dataset and utilized by nearly every Analysis tool within this toolkit, the Constructability Surface represents the ease of development across the Study Area. The more constructable - that is, least amount of physical, political, environmental, etc. barriers - areas are deemed to be the most cost-effective for construction and may ultimately reduce the cost of the project. Input for Determining Constructability Where does Integrated Geomancy get the data necessary to determine Constructability? Your team is encouraged to add much supplemental data to the Geomancy model as possible, including datasets that represent anthropogenic, hydrographic, etc. areas within the overall Study Area. The Decision Engine takes these details, industry-tested weighting schemes, and magic to create a representation of the area that allows your team to navigate the barriers and pitfalls of development - and even better, the locations that are most optimal for Well Pad Sites and other assets!
    Field Optimization should never be one-size-fits-all. We know teams are often faced with opportunities to tie-in to other assets or even the hard choices for how best to weight the efficiency of a specific area for construction. Thankfully, Integrated Geomancy makes this easy. The Scenario within this toolkit acts as a what-if instance in which settings may be applied to the data, analyses performed, and results generated within a Project - all without disturbing the original data housed with the overall Project. The Decision Engine stores the settings and details for each Scenario, allowing you to easily access them. Flexible Approach to Full Field Optimization This process can be applied to any assets and reports within the Project, encouraging teams to take a more flexible approach to optimizing fields. Datasets can be added or removed from a Scenario and re-run, scores and weights can be modified, and new Scenarios can be created without ever having to reload your spatial data.
    While the majority of the results produced by Integrated Geomancy include two-dimensional and surface-level representations, select tools within the application facilitates the visualization of Well Pad Site layers in three-dimensions (i.e., 3D). Assets generated during optimization, such as Completable Areas, Laterals, and Well Pad Sites, are attributed Z-values based on user input. This type of visualization helps teams to better understand placement - especially when opened in 3D-centric software like ArcGIS Pro.
    While Integrated Geomancy is truly impressive when it comes to showcasing the visual side of the optimizations it generates, we know that visualizations are not enough - You also need the numbers behind the analysis. That is why this toolkit comes equipped with the options to generate reports on variables involved in pre- and post-analysis, including... Reports on datasets included in an analysis, detailing those required and supplemental spatial data files - as well as their settings and weights - that make up results in a Project and accompanying Scenarios. Summaries of user-specified asset Feature Layers within a Project, such as reporting on the linear distances covered, hectares disturbed, calculated crossings, etc. for those Completable Areas found. Summaries of site suitability for all Well Pad Sites found during analysis, listing attributes of these assets as well as cut/fill volumes, score, and weights. Reports on those results generated by the Analysis tools, showcasing multiple spreadsheets for each tool group to ensure your team has access to a condensed and economic view of this output.
