WhiteStar Introduces CartoPlat Products for Petroleum, Forestry Mapping

LAKEWOOD, Colorado, USA, 24 October 2006 – WhiteStar Corp. is pleased to introduce CartoPlat™, a digital database of georeferenced maps depicting the original lot and tract surveys of U.S. townships. Scanned from actual township maps, CartoPlat products can be overlaid on WhiteStar CartoBase™ layers or any other common digital land grid for use in new or existing land mapping projects.

“Oil & gas and forestry companies spend hundreds of thousands of dollars every year on day rates for land researchers to find the legal descriptions and land ownership details required to lease land parcels,” said WhiteStar CEO Robert White. “CartoPlat puts the original township plat map, lot numbers, acreage and patentee names right on their desktop, fully georeferenced to their land grid.”

Offered as georeferenced raster tiff images, CartoPlat products are available for the entire state of Louisiana and many townships in Colorado, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Arkansas, California, Oregon, Alabama, and Mississippi. WhiteStar can create CartoPlat products for any other U.S. township. The database products can be purchased on a per-township or per-state basis.

“CartoPlat is a huge time- and money-saving product for any land mapping project that requires determination of land ownership details,” said White. “Based on current day rates, CartoPlat cuts land research expenses in half and can dramatically accelerate the entire lease mapping process.”

WhiteStar creates the CartoPlat digital map products by obtaining the original township survey maps from local governments across the United States. These original documents comprise the legal basis for land title descriptions that courts rely upon if ownership disputes arise. In many areas, additional official surveys have been made to correct earlier inaccuracies, and WhiteStar includes these revised plats in the CartoPlat database.

The surveys, up to 200 years old in some cases, are scanned by WhiteStar and georeferenced to modern land grids with geographic coordinates. WhiteStar then formats them so the surveys can be overlaid with other raster or vector data layers in any popular mapping and GIS package.

The CartoPlat raster maps serve as ideal base layers for the WhiteStar CartoBase lines of products. Each CartoBase product contains up to 24 seamless layers of geospatial data covering the entire state and delivered on DVDs equipped with the CartoBase software application that allows users to export data in their choice of mapping formats. Software formats supported include Petra, AutoCAD, Kingdom, GeoGraphix, ArcGIS and ArcView.
