I can not say where "it is or is not appropriate" in general terms, because you do not have experience in all fields of application of the program. But if you can note that within the areas where it has been applied and where better results have been obtained, it is when the results have been integrated with programs such as the ARGIS, specifically through the map module, obtaining simultaneous general visualizations of different variables. Where lower quality results have been obtained, it is when the intention is to generate contour maps with relatively little information, through the use of interpolation algorithms. I have done tests where I have results with a good amount of information and I try that the program, after removing information selectively, I generate new surfaces, in order to see how sensitive is the generated surface to the amount of information available. The results are similar to those obtained with other software that can also generate the desired surfaces.

If you have many different DCSs or PLCs in your manufacturing plant, OSIsoft PI System does the job quite well to integrate all different types of sources and data. We have Yokogawa, Mitsubishi, Hitachi, and Azbil DCS and PLC. Connecting them is not a problem.
Read full review Pros It is an integral tool that allows linking information from different disciplines. The software allows the projects it manages to be stored anywhere in the network where it is working, including storage devices that are connected to the network itself. The integrity of the data is high, while the search engine and associated quality control maximize the degree of manageability of the data, even when the project is large. Read full review Ability to integrate with many 3rd-party systems, 70 sources as per their marketing claims Great for big data management Read full review Cons It suffers from what happens to most software of this type: the resolution of isolines that define points or surfaces of the same characteristic (for example, equal depth, or the same degree of hardness), depend a lot on the interpolation algorithm that the software is selected or used directly, so in general the characteristics of these surfaces do not reliably characterize the actual conditions being studied. The use of this software, in particular, is limited to machines that operate with 64-bit processors. Read full review Missing some features and has some bugs Read full review Support Rating
Good local support. The only issue is that there are not many system integrators that are well versed with OSIsoft. The implementation is also very costly.

The named software may have the same or higher capacity than the revised one, as far as the analysis of the data is concerned, but they do not have the capacity of visual representation that the GeoGraphix has. The interesting thing is to use the best of the different software. You can analyze with one and import the data to the GeoGraphix to make the analyzes on the platform of this one.
Read full review Return on Investment It has enlarged the size of the study area due to its great data handling capacity. It has increased the possibility of recreating and posing different scenarios, as well as the sensitivity of these to changes in the values of any of the parameters involved. The speed with which you can obtain results for different study scenarios has also increased.
