GIS Modernization Upgrades

August 09, 2016

The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) is modernizing its internal Geographic Information Systems (GIS).  As part of the modernization process, several upgrades will occur between Friday, November 11 and Sunday, November 13.

The GIS systems upgrade will provide, among other new features, enhanced capability for the RRC to spot and update wells and surveys.

The agency’s Public GIS Viewer (Map) will not be impacted by the upgrade with the exception of brief outage during the upgrade window. This brief outage will be announced on the RRC’s website.

If you have any issues with the Public GIS Viewer (Map) or any other services related to our GIS systems, please contact the agency’s Information Technology Services (ITS) Help Desk at 512-463-7229 or
