Just weeks away from the the 22nd Annual GITA Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference
GITA
Fellow GIS & Geospatial Professionals:

Within a few weeks GITA will be hosting the Oil and Gas Pipeline Conference October 28-30 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston, Texas.

Join your geospatial and data management colleagues from the transmission, utility, mid-stream, and exploration sectors of the oil and gas industry. Papers will be presented on a variety of topics including; Operational Awareness, Asset Data Management, Data Mobility, Interoperability, Regulatory Compliance, Pipeline Integrity, Project Planning and Records Management.

Our keynote will be delivered by John Pinkerton, Executive Chairman of Range Resources Corporation, plenary sessions will be held on the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration's (PHMSA) Integrity Verification Process, and Asset Knowledge Management.

If your company is responsible for moving natural gas or petroleum products from the well site to America's homes, businesses, and manufacturers this is the GIS conference for you!

The conference is targeted towards decision makers in GIS, senior management, IT, land/right of way acquisitions, pipeline safety and integrity. GITA's Oil and Gas Pipeline Conference provides the broadest exposure to a variety of technologies and solutions.

The GITA Board of Directors and I hope you can join us in Houston October 28-30 for what promises to be an informative and entertaining program.

Regards,

Mark E. Limbruner

Directions Magazine

The small satellite revolution: More earth observations at a lower cost
Sensors & Systems
While there has been much discussion about an explosion of earth observation satellites over the next few decades, much of that has centered around developing countries starting their own programs or existing countries adding to their capacity. New developments with smaller and cheaper satellites are now promising a surge of commercial space-based imagery platforms at a global scale.

Predicted ephemeris: Waste of time or an untapped resource?
GPS World
By Eric Gakstatter: Whenever I point a critical finger at the GPS folks, I apologize before I do so because it's really a wonderful system. What I try to offer the community in general is a link between the GPS system operators and the civil community. It's amazing when you think about it, two huge user bases of civil and military users, and a little strip called CGSIC that communicates between them.
