The implementation of an Enterprise Geographical Information System to support Cadastre and Expropriation activities.

The implementation of an Enterprise Geographical Information System to support Cadastre and Expropriation activities. | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Abstract

 

The processes of mobilization of land for infrastructures of public and private domain are developed according to proper legal frameworks and systematically confronted with the impoverished national situation as regards the cadastral identification and regularization, which leads to big inefficiencies, sometimes with very negative impact to the overall effectiveness.

 

This project report describes Ferbritas Cadastre Information System (FBSIC) project and tools, which in conjunction with other applications, allow managing the entire life-cycle of Land Acquisition and Cadastre, including support to field activities with the integration of information collected in the field, the development of multi-criteria analysis information, monitoring all information in the exploration stage, and the automated generation of outputs. The benefits are evident at the level of operational efficiency, including tools that enable process integration and standardization of procedures, facilitate analysis and quality control and maximize performance in the acquisition, maintenance and management of registration information and expropriation (expropriation projects). Therefore, the implemented system achieves levels of robustness, comprehensiveness, openness, scalability and reliability suitable for a structural platform.

 

The resultant solution, FBSIC, is a fit-for-purpose cadastre information system rooted in the field of railway infrastructures.

 

FBSIC integrating nature of allows: to accomplish present needs and scale to meet future services; to collect, maintain, manage and share all information in one common platform, and transform it into knowledge; to relate with other platforms; to increase accuracy and productivity of business processes related with land property management.

National Congress of Americans Indians and Google Partner to Map Tribal Lands | Earthzine

National Congress of Americans Indians and Google Partner to Map Tribal Lands | Earthzine | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"What if the place where you live, your home, wasn’t on a map? In a modern digital age, the idea might seem preposterous. The majority of us are carrying more complicated navigation systems in our pockets and purses than the devices that what once guided early spacecraft out of the Earth’s atmosphere. But for some Native Americans living in the U.S., this hasn’t always been the case.

 

Since 2012, Google has been working with the National Congress of the American Indians (NCAI) to update Google Maps to accurately reflect the location and boundaries of American Indian reservations in the United States. The project was the result of a partnership between NCAI and Google Earth Outreach. The partnership was fostered by a group of Google employees who are part of Google’s American Indian Network (GAIN)."

“It’s been amazing to see the different uses of the portal by individual users and within departments,” said Jablonsky. “The wealth of data alone has been a valuable resource, breaking down data barriers across all our departments.”

 

The Land Information Portal plays an integral role in the county’s daily operations and serves as a perfect model for any county to replicate. Esri recognized the successful model, honoring the county with a Special Achievement in GIS Award at the 2014 Esri User Conference.

‘Challenges for GIS remain around the uncertainty and availability of data’

‘Challenges for GIS remain around the uncertainty and availability of data’ | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"Tina Thomson, a young professional working in a global insurance and reinsurance company, shared the challenges insurers commonly faced in accessing geospatial information for risk assessment and model validation.


It is paramount in the insurance industry to manage exposure to natural and man-made catastrophes, which can easily wipe out an entire region. Obtaining an accurate and complete inventory of exposures remains a challenge⊃1; and data quality plays an increasingly important role in assessing risks for clients to help insurers respond quickly and fairly in the event of claims while improving the accuracy of pricing.

 

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) can help insurers and reinsurers like Amlin to identify exposure concentrations as well as enhance existing information through reference to other data. We can better understand the model sensitivity of exposure codings by location while visualising the geography of damage ratios (relating to hazard intensity) for the various physical characteristics of a risk, such as a building’s occupancy, construction and age. Capturing and geographically verifying the distinction of exposures is therefore very important to assess more precisely the financial risks from windstorms, floods and other hazards.

 

In combination with visualising footprints from historical events, among other things, GIS can help to assess whether losses appear reasonable and in line with expectations. For example, Figure 1 illustrates an external event footprint⊃2; for Windstorm Klaus, which affected Western Europe in January 2007, overlaid with a portfolio of campsite losses for the same modelled event. The high losses correspond with higher wind speeds along the coast and the event track. Comparing the losses against incurred claims further helps to support the loss figures that modelling produces."

"Why the Workbook Getting to Know Web GIS Is This Year’s Must Read for GIS Students

 

With an estimated three billion people using the Internet, it’s no wonder that GIS is rapidly moving onto the web. Web GIS is becoming more popular within government agencies, businesses, and other organizations around the world as public demand skyrockets for services that include maps.

 

That’s why learning web GIS is a must, especially for students who plan a career in geospatial technology. To teach them the fundamentals, Esri recently publishedGetting to Know Web GIS, a new how-to workbook that teaches, step by step, how to build and share web GIS apps quickly and easily using the Esri ArcGIS platform. The apps can be used in a browser on any type of device, from the desktop to a mobile phone.

 

Getting to Know Web GIS, written by Esri senior web GIS application developer Pinde Fu, is a follow-up to the popular 2010 book Web GIS: Principles and Applications, which Fu cowrote with professor Jiulin Sun from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. After getting schooled in the basic concepts of web GIS, readers were clamoring for help to build web apps."

Smart maps can help India gain around $8 billion: Report | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"A new report, Smart Maps for Smart Cities: India’s $8 Billion+ Opportunity, that quantifies the value of smart maps to Indian citizens, businesses and government, has been published by Dalberg Global Development Advisors and Confederation of Indian Industry. The study highlights that smart maps can help India gain upwards of $8 billion in savings and value, save 13,000 lives, and reduce one million metric tons of carbon emissions a year, in cities alone.


Smart maps use mapping technology that capture a broad range of data and are built to update quickly and correctly in order to give people the most accurate information possible. "Simple improvements in some of the most basic tools that citizens use can lead to significant social impact. Maps, by which citizens and organizations make sense of their surroundings, are one such ubiquitous and fundamental tool that technology has transformed," said Gaurav Gupta, Managing Director of Dalberg Asia."

‘Geospatial industry can complement agriculture sector'

‘Geospatial industry can complement agriculture sector' | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"ZLTO, the Dutch farmers’ association, is committed to work with its 16000 members for a productive, efficient and sustainable food producing system. Its CEO, Elies Lemkes-Straver, tells Geospatial World more.

 

Dutch farmers are well-known for their profound track record. How did they get this far?

 

This is the result of a combination of several factors. First and foremost, Dutch farmers started to unify in an association or entrepreneurial organisation such as ZLTO in the 1900s. By working together and organising the agricultural sector as a whole; farmers were able to invest and innovate to increase efficiency.

 

Another factor is government policy. The Dutch government implemented stimulating policies to assure an increase in productivity across all the agricultural sectors. Subsequently, this policy was also adopted by the European Union. For many years they provided incentives to different agricultural sectors in order to bring it to the next level.

 

The third factor is the strong knowledge infrastructure in our country. For example, Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR) is a globally-recognized key player in the agricultural knowledge domain. Our government has invested in a well-developed educational infrastructure."
