Energy Data eXchange (EDX)

The Energy Data eXchange (EDX) is an online system to support internal coordination and collaboration as well as timely tech transfer of data-driven products across NETL’s research portfolios. EDX coordinates historical and current data and information from a wide variety of sources to facilitate access to research that crosscuts multiple NETL projects/programs. EDX provides external access to technical products and data published by NETL-affiliated research teams. NETL-affiliated researchers can use EDX’s Collaborative Workspaces to coordinate and share work with a variety of organizations and institutions in a secure environment. Read More

The Department of Energy/National Energy Technology Laboratories Geocube is a flexible, customizable web mapping application that concatenates key spatial datasets and information relevant to energy research needs for a given region. The Geocube connects users to data and information spanning the subsurface to the surface via EDX, integrating its online search capabilities and current data feeds. Users have the flexibility to develop maps with spatial elements of interest to them and export and download their custom web-map and/or the underlying datasets. The first Geocube released focuses on the offshore Gulf of Mexico region. Throughout the next year additional Geocubes for the U.S. are planned. Read More
