GIS Seminar: Tom DeWitte
GIS In the Natural Gas Industry
Presenter: Tom DeWitte, ESRI technical lead, natural gas industry
Managing the nation’s pipe system for the natural gas industry requires knowing “where” the pipes are buried. Keeping the pipe system safe and meeting regulatory compliance requirements requires a spatial awareness. Because of this GIS has become a core enterprise IT system for this industry. Most medium to large gas utilities have dedicated GIS staffs. This presentation will share how GIS is used within the natural gas industry and the types of job opportunities that are available.
