April 30, 2013. (PRWEB) April 30, 2013 -- Oil & Gas operators face significant challenges in keeping land and lease agreements consistently aligned to survey grids. Geographic Information System (GIS) specialists from Quorum Business Solutions, Inc.

The presentation will review tools and approaches to reconcile changes with existing data to ensure future data capture, analysis and map presentation is clean and accurate.
