LGS Luncheon – October 2018

Abstract:

 

Image data—from airplanes, satellites, or drones—provides unique information, is not expensive, it works with common computer setups, is widely available, and merges easily with other data and maps.
Photogeology has led exploration for over 80 years. It adds information to those large, white areas on lease maps, high grades areas and establishes the structural framework. A photogeology study found basement structures in Nebraska where all ten subsequent earthquakes (3.0+ magnitude) were located.
Some of today’s satellites are shoe box size. Drones save us time and money too, doing dirty, dangerous, monotonous tasks: how do they work, and what all can they do for us?

 

 

 


Bio:

Dave Koger

Dave Koger’s image analysis career began in the private sector and was recruited to a research position at TCU. His consulting practice has taken him to Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Chile, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, London, Italy, and Africa.

He was chair of the Geosat Committee, a group of oil/mining industry satellite data users. The Committee performed pre-competitive, basic and applied research on various platforms of remotely sensed image data (one such project developed the methodology for mapping offshore oil seeps). The non-profit Committee also advised NASA on new satellite designs and worked to ensure civilian/industry access to data.

Dave has served several defense-related entities, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Cancer Institute, the U.S. Department of Energy, the American Farm Bureau, and several hundred oil and gas explorationists.

His core business is exploration photogeology, but he’s called on for expert witness testimony on such matters as forensics film analysis, wildfires, and surface damages of several kinds. He is a frequent contributor to AAPG events, a founding member of the SIPES Fort Worth Chapter, and a veteran.
