Technical Workgroups

The technical workgroups have two main responsibilities:

  • Maintain the “PUG List”: a persistent, documented, prioritized list of Esri technical issues pertinent to the petroleum industries, then use this list to communicate these requirements to Esri’s GIS development staff to advance the delivery of capabilities.
  • Coordinate, organize and/or participate in working groups to increase the understanding of various GIS related technical issues of particular interest to the community.

Technical Workgroups have been an ongoing cornerstone of the PUG.  Over the years we have had workgroups for 3D, geodetics, metadata, integration and more.  Today we have many workgroups in existence – learn about them below!
