National Data Repositories (NDR)

The natural resources of a country are often one of its greatest sources of income and long term sustainability. To protect and maximize the value of these resources governments around the world are seeking to collect, quantify and broker data. This is usually achieved through the creation of a national data repository. CGG enables governments to achieve this long term strategic goal through the application of specialist domain knowledge and extensive experience in this role. 

A national data repository can deliver many benefits, but initiating, building and operating an NDR may be a complex process with fiscal, legal and technical implications.

Since 1987, CGG has provided data management consultancy and services to a global customer base comprising leading commercial organizations and national governments. These services have included comprehensive NDR solutions encompassing training, consultancy, physical and digital storage, web hosting and single or multiple data types. 

We also offer training courses to help customers define their NDR strategy. Each course provides participants with the skills to develop and implement an NDR road map.
