Butler firm acquiring shale field mapping software service – Pittsburgh Business Times

Butler County-based Geospatial Corp. is acquiring the maker of ShaleNavigator, an interactive mapping platform, for an undisclosed price.

ShaleNavigator is a cloud-based, software-as-a-service program that contains information on permits, well production, lease offers, available property, and pipelines in the country’s shale fields. Its users include oil and gas pipeline companies, property owners, municipalities, oilfield service provider and business in financial services.

As part of the deal, ShaleNavigator founder Ed Camp will join Geospatial.

“Ed has done a fabulous job of creating ShaleNavigator and growing it into the premier oil and gas website providing valuable insight and information to critical players within the Marcellus and Utica regions,” said Geospatial CEO Mark Smith in a press release.

“The combination of Ed’s vast mapping and information management experience and GeoUnderground, our cloud-based GIS portal, provides Geospatial with rich data and critical information concerning all aspects of the nation’s oil and gas industry,” he said.
