OGINFO.COM FIRM FINDS GROWTH DESPITE ECONOMY

Surface mappers diversify efforts

By Fanny S. Chirinos (Contact) Corpus Christi Caller-Times
Tuesday, June 23, 2009

CORPUS CHRISTI - It wasn't the slow economy that prompted owners of OGInfo.com to diversify. In fact, the surface mapping company started four years ago.

Established in 2005, the company did parcel mapping for customers in the oil and gas industry. The intention never was to deviate from what was profitable and was helping to brand the company name.

That same year, partners James Davis, Chad Feerick and Shawn Rancatore capitalized on the opportunity to open a mapping company in India with one of their former employees. OGI owns 50 percent in that venture while Prashanth Chintamaneni, a software developer, and his brother, Pramod Chintamaneni, own the other half.

Three years later, they decided to pursue contracts for mapping parcels through county appraisal districts. In October, the company received its first contract from the Bee County appraisal district.

"It was the county appraiser who was familiar with our oil and gas work who pushed for us to submit a bid," said Feerick, the company's president. "We're glad we did. Since October, our local government division has brought in about $350,000. It was a big help when the economy turned south for us in December."

Although diversification wasn't the only reason the company has stayed afloat while some others have folded, Davis said, it helped. Travis Grumbles, director of government services, said clients include Bee, Palo Pinto, San Patricio, Liberty, Refugio and Colorado counties.

Grumbles said OGI expects to land six more government contracts by the end of the year.

"Oil and gas customers like things fast and cheap, so we've applied the same principles to government work," Grumbles said. "We do software development, archival map scanning and online services. We do our own deed research and we can work around the clock, thanks to our guys in India."

"INITIAL POINT" IN OKLAHOMA - A BARE STONE SHAFT LOCATES YOUR LOT

"INITIAL POINT" IN OKLAHOMA
A Bare Stone Shaft Locates Your Lot
By ALVIN RUCKER

Page 328
Where is the most important place in Oklahoma? Each person is entitled to one guess. Each guess is wrong, because the most important place in Oklahoma is not the guesser's home or place of business. The most important place in Oklahoma is also one of the most obscure and most seldom visited, and beyond question, one of the least known spots in the state.

Gather around, mates, and let's listen to a real bedtime story told by encyclopedists, historians, surveyors and soldiers. The most important place in Oklahoma is a point on the boundary line between Murray and Garvin counties. It is a short distance from the place known in history as Fort Arbuckle. From that point every foot of land in an immense area, including all of Oklahoma, except Texas, Cimarron and Beaver counties, is described in legal documents. The area includes Kansas and Nebraska. The highly important point is called the "initial point," suggestive of its importance. It is referred to more often than any other place in Oklahoma. Not an inch of land in the state of Oklahoma, the three Panhandle counties excepted, can be located without reference to that little known, seldom visited spot. The reference, direct or indirect, is in every deed or lease ever written to describe Oklahoma real estate, and will continue to appear, directly or indirectly, in every deed or lease, as long a, civilization, as now constituted, endures in Oklahoma.

In 1866, the federal government acquired from the Indians, by treaties, a large area of land in Indian territory and prepared to subdivide it into townships and sections, foreseeing the time when the whites would settle the land. Indian territory was so remote from established base lines and meridians that the surveyors decided to establish a fictitious base line and a fictitious meridian, the meridian to be known as the Indian Meridian, from which townships would be numbered east and west; the base line to be known as the Indian base line, from which ranges would be numbered north and south. Ranges and townships are similar areas, six miles wide.

A point near Fort Arbuckle was selected as the initial point, and a line surveyed north and south from that point, and the line was named the "Indian Meridian." It is about twelve miles, two townships west of the ninety-seventh meridian west of the Greenwich meridian. The base line is about thirty-six miles north of the thirty-fourth parallel of longitude, and the intersection of those two lines is called the initial point in Oklahoma. Neither of the lines falls upon a 360th division of the globe, based upon the Greenwich meridian and the equator, for the obvious reason that the Greenwich meridian and the equator are too remote to be handily used in describing townships and similar areas in Oklahoma. The Indian meridian is recognized as far north as South Dakota, there being several towns named Meridian because the towns are close to the Indian Meridian.

The official description of the arbitrary point, taken from the surveyor's, field notes is:

"Initial monument at point between two small streams both having a northerly course, making a junction about twenty chains north.
"Set sandstone 54x18x18, marked on west side I. P., on east side Ind. Mer., and on north side 1870, in a mound of stones six feet in diameter and three feet high, from which flagstaff at Fort Arbuckle bears north seven degrees, thirty-seven minutes west. East end of Messa, bears north 46 degrees, 17 minutes west. East end of Messa bears north 47 degrees, 42 minutes west. East end of Messa bears north 55 degrees, 56 minutes west. Black oak 10 inches in diameter bears north 70 degrees, 11 minutes west 617 links distant. Rock on east side of brook marked thus (111) bears south 14 degrees, 12 minutes east, 1,365 links distant. Cedar eight inches in diameter just left of rock."

SUMMER NAPE EXPO

Posted: Mon, 22 Sep 2008 13:24:22 -0500

Summer NAPE has come and gone and was a big success for the OGI team. It was a lot of fun because we got to meet many interesting people from a variety of companies all very intrigued by our new complete online land package, LAVA 2.0. Everyone was very excited with the capabilities of LAVA 2.0 integrating lead/lease land management, GIS mapping and a powerful search engine, all online. With all the new people we met at NAPE, the office here in Corpus Christi has been very busy. We are all excited to see more clients start exploring the power of our online products. From what we saw at Summer NAPE, we are confident that more and more companies will start rethinking there GIS needs and how OGI can help them compete in a very competitive oil & gas prospecting market. Here at OGI, we specialize in oil & gas land information, so you don't have to.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth and let us show them our revolutionary online product. We always learn a lot when we get out and talk to people fact-to-face about their businesses and the changing industry technology. We hope everyone that visited with us took away some valuable information about our company, OGI, and how we are helping to change the way successful prospecting is achieved.

We also would like to congratulate the winners of our daily drawings. Each day we held a drawing to give away a hand held Garmon GPS device. The day one winner was Kathleen Tanner of DLA Piper US LLP. The day two winner was Kris Perryman of Perryman Exploration. Congratulations to Kathleen and Kris from all of us at OGI. We know now, that even if they don't use OGI PowerMap, they won't get lost.

Look for us at NAPE 2009 in February at The George R. Brown Convention Center. We hope to see you there.

LOCAL COMPANY'S BIG BREAK COMES FROM CHANCE MEETING

Local company's big break comes from chance meeting  

Posted: Fri, 31 Oct 2008 10:22:00 -0500

Corpus Christi-based OGInfo.com was awarded contract for GIS system in Bee County

CORPUS CHRISTI - A chance meeting with the LaSalle County chief appraiser this past spring led to OGInfo.com's contract with the appraisal district of Bee County earlier this month. The Corpus Christi-based company plans on it being the first of many.
Travis Grumbles, the company's head of governmental services, said he approached numerous counties in the state asking for information on bidding for county and municipal geographic information system projects. The GIS system digitally maps roads, parcel lines, surveys, water bodies, pipelines, oil and gas wells, floodplains, parks, city limits and jurisdictional boundaries. "As I went along talking to chief appraisers for various counties, we came across the one for LaSalle County," Grumbles said. "Months later, he became the chief appraiser for Bee County. We submitted the bid and got the job."

Fuller is looking at a Kenedy county map provided by OGinfo.com showing different boundary tracts and to compare accuracy. the OGinfo.com team members in background are from clockwise left to right: Chad Feerick; James Davis; Shawn Rancatore; Travis Grumbles; Canton Hall.

Domingo Palomo, Bee County's chief appraiser, said the LaSalle office received a couple of calls a year from companies looking to expand into governmental work. OGInfo.com's call was not unusual. "When I came to Bee County, I asked (the company) to come in and put in a bid," said Palomo, who began working in South Texas in July. "It didn't matter that they didn't have governmental experience. Maps are maps and the board liked their presentation." OGInfo.com has been doing this type of work for the past 10 or so years, but for oil and gas clients, Grumbles said. This is the first governmental contract it has applied for and been awarded, he added.  "We wanted to work more for municipalities, especially those in South Texas," Grumbles said. "Most of it has to do with the cost, but the (GIS) system can make departments more efficient. It eliminates foot traffic by offering much of the county's information online."

Bee County has a GIS system, but not all the information on a parcel has been added. OGInfo.com will fill in those attributes and complete the work, Palomo said. The $20,237.95 project is expected to be completed by Jan. 1, county and company officials said.
