Our business is …what?
What is Blackbeard Data Services LLC is a skunkworks located in Austin, Texas. We specialize in attacking tough, complicated problems that have large financial bounties attached. Such challenges are brought to us by large corporations that they are technically incapable of solving or politically constrained from attacking. Usually, we do a proof-of-concept once we’ve solved an idea, then partner with a company to roll out the production level solution. We currently are focused on geospatial data solutions and data mining aka knowledge discovery.
Our flat corporate culture embraces out-of-the-box innovation and disdains stiff shirts and pointless committees. We’ve created a culture where a 17-year-old clerk developed the biggest innovative idea at Blackbeard Data in 2008. Every employee has a voice, and anyone with an idea will be heard.
Blackbeard Data is primarily known for providing information to assist institutional professionals and independent investors in the acquisition of mineral assets, specifically buying oil and gas royalties. Blackbeard Data maintains the world’s largest database of oil and gas royalty owners and the world’s largest database of oil and gas comparables built from oil auction histories.
Currently, Blackbeard Data now has a Geospatial Education Division called The Institute for Mapping Technology offering courses in Geographical Information Systems. It caters to teaching Geologists, Landmen, and Engineers the wonders of GIS using free open source software. Please contact us to sign up for one of our live GIS classes or online GIS training. Every corporation has a social contract to improve the world in some way. We are doing our part, what is your company doing?
