Hart Energy Continues to Lead in Pipeline GIS Data

HOUSTON, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The GIS pipeline database maintained by Hart Energy's Data and Mapping Services unit (formerly known as Rextag Strategies) surpassed the million-mile mark during the third quarter of 2012. Since 2007, the GIS data team has digitized a total of 1,002,603 pipeline miles in North America, with more than 900,000 miles in the U.S. alone. These figures are expected to continue to grow every quarter, and Hart Energy advises individuals to ensure numbers are calculated using North American Equidistant projection to ensure accurate and un-manipulated mileages.
