DOGGR Oil Well Map 

Source: DOGGR Interactive Well Finder

Produced the California Department of Conservation's Division of Oil, Gas & Geothermal Resources, the interactive Well Finder map enables users to search for both active and inactive oil wells by address, API, Lat/Long, PLSS, by or free navigation, toggling on and off a variety of filters and jurisdictional boundaries.  One significant problematic with this database is that while a user may toggle on and off well types used in hydraulic fracturing and injection drilling, such as 'disposal' and 'enhanced recovery' wells, there is no option to toggle off the highly obfuscating background of inactive and plugged wells.   In addition, demarcations used to distinguish well types are difficult to distinguish from one another, particularly in the info-graphic distinction between 'active injector' wells and 'plugged' wells.
