Three Step to Query Process

Alexis from Oseberg demonstrates a three-step process for querying data. The first step involves selecting a location using the AOI toolbar, offering options like creating a box, drawing a shape, or using AOI search for specific counties or STRs (Sections, Townships, Ranges). The second step involves choosing a date range, and the third step entails selecting the desired data sets from options like leases, permits, completions, transfers and commingles. Alexis provides a quick guide on editing, toggling, and centering the selected area, offering a comprehensive overview of the data query process in Oseberg.

Advanced CSV Import Tutorial

The CSV headers are automatically used to label each data attribute. So a CSV header named “source” becomes “Source” in the grid.


Add [label=MyLabelName] to your csv header to override the above behavior. source[label=DataSource] labels “source” as “DataSource”.

Your geographic data must be in geojson format. The data can be either a GeoJSON FeatureCollection or a GeoJSON Geometry.

The CSV header must either

  1. Have “geojson” in the header name
  2. Include “[type=geojson]” in the header.

For example, the application will recognize both “drilling_tract_geojson” or “drilling_tract[type=geojson]” as mappable geojson fields.

Create a CSV header titled “map_date” and add the date at which you want your data to appear on the map. When that date lies between the beginning and end dates of the timeslider handles, your data will map provided it has a valid geojson geometry field.

Create a column in the CSV that contains the URL you want the hyperlink to link to. In the header for the data you want the link to be created for, add [linkMapping=(name of the header with URL)] where (name of the header with URL) is either the explicit field name you have set for that column, i.e., urlColumn[name=SOME_URL_COLUMN] or the lowercase column name if the name field has not been explicitly set.

For example, the CSV below creates a link around “OCC” that links to the URL in the source_url column.



Add a mapping to the cell with the correct type. For example, “expiration_date[type=date]” converts the data in that column to a date, while “section[type=number]” converts the data to a number.

Here is a non-comprehensive list of mappings available to configure your data. Create these mappings by adding them to the respective header like “headerName[mapping_key=value][mapping_key=value]” These are all optional and only used for advanced configuration of your data.

  1. name – Key used to reference the respective key in your CSV. Unnecessary in most cases. The CSV header is used by default as the name.
  2. label – The display value used for the data field. For example “Source”, “Section”, etc
    type – “date”, “number”, or “text” 
    visible – Whether this field is hidden in the grid by default. Can be toggled in the column manager.
  3. linkMapping – Looks for a URL in this data field. If one exists and creates a link around the labeled field in the grid. See the example above.
  4. layer-name – Only valid for geojson data. This geojson data will be mapped to its own map layer of the same name. If multiple fields contain the same layer name, then they will all be mapped to the same layer.
