EnVision serves as a graphics-based internet portal and single point-of-entry for users to access energy maps and geospatial data. It relies on a “dashboard” of pre-defined tools or widgets to customize and enhance user map displays and to expedite access to assemblages of maps and data (e.g NOGA, World Energy, and other project data packages). EnVision is flexible and scalable; it works on multiple computer platforms and browsers and can grow to include new tools, data types, and energy commodity assets to the dashboard as research needs require. Implemention of EnVision allows the Data Management Project and Energy Program to move another step closer to the one-stop shopping concept for access to the Program's data resources in a single portal.
Assessment Summary Widget
BCFG: Billion cubic feet of gas
BOE: Barrel of oil equivalent, 6,00 cubic feet of gas equals 1 barrel of oil equivalent
Conventional and Continuous Resources: Please see the following:
EG: Enhanced Geothermal Systems
Geothermal Energy: Energy extracted from heat stored in the earth
IR: Identified Geothermal Systems
MMBNGL: Million of barrels of natural gas liquids
MMBO: Million barrels of oil
UR: Undiscovered Geothermal Resources
Technically Recoverable: Resources that, if found, could be produced using currently available technology and industry practices. This does not include reserves.
Widget: A modular software component providing specific functional capabilities within EnVision.
Using this widget, users can obtain summaries of assessments conducted by the Energy Resources Program related to a variety of geologic energy resources including conventional or continous oil and gas, gas hydrates, coalbed gas, natural gas liguids, coal, and geothermal geologic energy resources. Representation of the summary within the widget varies depending on the resources being investigated. The following widget description represents an average display.
