I've been doing some work for my company's real time operations center lately and I've taken on a couple projects to get this place sorted out in my time here. After a couple of bad years in the oilfield (and not to mention COVID) this office has seen better days.
One of those projects is that we have work sites moving all over the country but the guys in the RTOC have no idea where any of them are. There's no map in here. The office they are in is filled to the brim with computer screens, including 50" hanging from the roof that are currently going unused. I got it in my head to get one of these screensnup and running and put a digital map up that the boys can manually update as required and can reference when they need to know where one of our projects is located.
The problem is I don't know what to use to create/display this map. Hence I come to tildes.
Now I know this is probably the perfect job for something like GIS, but none of these guys have experience with GIS nor are they going to be particularly technically savvy. I need to figure out a solution that is funny proof and easy enough to use that it doesn't get abandoned a couple months down the road. I myself am not going to be here long either meaning it has to be something I can leave behind to be maintained by others.
Any previous experience or ideas on how to make this a reality would be appreciated.
