Howdy! We just got back from a wonderful time at the Esri PUG 2015 conference in Houston, Texas.

In the opening plenary Valarm was shown by Esri founder Jack Dangermond when talking about health, safety, and environment. Jacob from Seneca Resources mentioned Valarm in his plenary presentation and showed pictures of the water pond level monitoring deployment we did last fall.

The Valarm booth in the expo got a lot of traffic over the 3 days as we juggled (literally) remote monitoring Industrial IoT sensor needs.

The most asked about topic was water level monitoring for effective water management. Folks also wanted to learn more about how to use for real-time monitoring of various environmental sensors like:

Edward from Valarm presented with Jacob from Seneca Resources on “Utilizing Esri and Valarm for Real-Time Water Management” in the Taking GIS to the Field session. Here’s an overview of what we presented: Utilizing Esri’s GeoEvent Processor and Valarm real time sensors, we have developed a network to track and monitor our water resources in the Marcellus, Utica and Geneseo Basins. We are able to track the content of each water storage pond and frack water storage tank in real time, giving our operations team a clear look at our available water assets at any time.

If you didn’t get a chance to stop by the booth, the literature we handed out is below and you can get a printable Valarm for O&G and Natural Resources PDF here.
