The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has announced a partnership with Rhiza’s client, the Center for Healthy Environments and Communities at the University of Pittsburgh (CHEC), to publish maps and data from their Rhiza-powered website, FracTracker. With over a million readers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is considered one of the leading newspapers in the world. Their coverage of the Marcellus Shale boom on the web will now be powered by Rhiza Upshot because of the excellent data and mapping work of CHEC and the ease of use of Rhiza Upshot. FracTracker is also starting to appear in the print edition of the newspaper, where a map and well data was published in the very popular Sunday Edition on February 27, 2011.
We at Rhiza are thrilled to see this type of use of Rhiza Upshot’s technology. We’ve designed our web-based mapping tools to easily allow our customers to gather data from lots of sources, create map-based analyses of that data, and then share the results with the world on the web, in presentations and in print, and it’s great to see how creatively our customers are using them! If you’d like to see how Rhiza Upshot could be put to work for your company, organization or agency, please contact us to let us know!
