Asset and Location Information = Competitive Advantage. GIS (Geographic Information Systems) is virtual mapping for today’s world.

In the age of technology, paper maps are no longer the most reliable source for information involving the location of ever-changing infrastructure. By using digital data, this information is easily updated by our experienced GIS technicians, and is re-distributed to our clients on a quarterly basis.

With MAPSearch GIS data, clients can visualize information that reveals new relationships, patterns, and trends not visible with text-files, spreadsheets, or tabular databases.

MAPSearch GIS data shows not only the location of energy assets, but also valuable information about those assets--such as the owner, operator, last owner and operator, year installed, and more.

We offer four comprehensive datasets:


Natural Gas

Electric Power

Parcel Data


As the trusted industry source, we have listened to our clients and adapted to their needs and budgets

MAPSearch’s North American Petroleum GIS dataset offers extensive coverage of ethanol plants.

An ethanol plant produces ethanol, which is typically produced either chemically from ethylene, or biologically from fermentation of various sugars. Ethanol is used in the United States as a gasoline octane enhancer, as well as an oxygenate (when concentrated up to 10%).

As a client of our petroleum database, you will receive:

  • The location of all ethanol plants within your licensed area
  • Detailed attribute information for each plant, including:
    • Plant name
    • Owner
    • Operator
    • Last owner
    • Last operator
    • Number of owners
    • Lease status
    • Primary commodity
    • Capacity
    • Affiliation with gathering system
  • Transparent details for the quality of data provided:
    • When the attributes of the plant were last updated
    • When the plant was last spatially adjusted using aerial imagery
    • When the data was released
    • The source map for the information, and the source map’s resolution
