PROOF OF CONCEPT: COSIA
Using data visualization to rapidly improve environmental performance in Canada’s oil sands.
COSIA: Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance
October 2019 - January 2020
Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA) is an alliance of oil sands producers focused on accelerating the pace of improvement in environmental performance in Canada’s oil sands through collaborative action and innovation. At the time, COSIA used Sharepoint databases to store projects and technology but the existing database did not have an interface for exploring relationships between members in the fields. The IT Management team is seeking a software visualization tool allowing hundreds of COSIA members to share superior technologies to enhance the preservation of the environment and to overall reduce production costs.
