About FracTracker.org and Our Maps
FracTracker.org is here to provide you with the most up-to-date oil and gas drilling data that we can collect, map, and share.
Our site contains a growing index of pre-made maps, such as the location of wells drilled, violations, watersheds, storage facilities, etc. This national information is collected by our staff, depending on whether the state releases such data. The maps run on an Esri-based platform called ArcGIS Online. As those in the GIS world may know, Esri is the largest company in the world that specializes in helping people make maps with GIS technologies. You don’t need to be registered to use our site or maps. All of these services are provided free of charge. We highly encourage you to sign up for our monthly e-newsletter, which keeps recipients up-to-date with FracTracker news and information about oil and gas extraction.
There are a lot of intuitive features available on our maps. See the list below for just a few of them. We are also in the process of developing a few more features.
