Now that the Texas Railroad Commission has added all of the functionality to their new Enhanced GIS Veiwer that the Legacy GIS Viewer had, we can use it without the Legacy GIS Viewer to handle all of our needs for checking well production.
The easiest way to show you how to do this is to work through it together on a specific tract. So, for this example, we’ll use the following tract (selected at random):
Section 8, Block 38, Township 3 South, T & P RR Co. Survey, A-837, Midland County, Texas.
To open up the Texas Railroad Commission Enhanced GIS Viewer, click here. Or, you can navigate to it through the Texas Railroad Commission website by following the steps below:
- Go to the Texas RRC Website at http://www.rrc.state.tx.us/
- Click Maps – Public GIS Viewers under Useful Links on the right side of the screen.
- Click the image under Public GIS Viewer.
- On the next page, scroll down and click the link that says “Launch Public GIS Viewer”
The starting screen for the GIS Viewer will be a zoomed out view of the State of Texas, outlining the different Texas Railroad Commission Districts, and should look like the image below:
