Porto Alegre, RS (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
Endeeper, a pioneer in knowledge management for petrography, performed a major update of PetrographypediA (http://www.petrographypedia.com), the portal for dissemination of knowledge in petrography. The portal serves as a tool to help companies, researchers and students in the development of petrographic studies.
In this major upgrade of the portal, a new set of 250 photomicrographs were analyzed and published by Endeeper experts. Each photomicrograph of sedimentary rock provides a number of petrographic features that are relevant for the construction of precise geological models.
PetrographypediA offers a comprehensive multimedia material about petrography. Navigation is guided by categories that classify the content. A robust search engine is also available for searching geological terms. The portal PetrographypediA is available in English and Portuguese at http://www.petrographypedia.com.
Luiz Henrique Boff, Endeeper CEO, commented: "The portal PetrographypediA is currently a reference tool for companies, researchers and students working in exploration and production of mineral resources. So, this major upgrade is an important contribution from Endeeper to the geological community. PetrographypediA is part of the Endeeper strategy for the dissemination of knowledge in petrography and the company will continuously expand the portal."
