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.

"This is outstanding."

That was what GIS analyst Lauri Sohl of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, recalls thinking when she first saw the rollout of the Urban Observatory exhibit and website at the 2013 Esri User Conference. She found it informative and fun to compare three cities side by side, studying data such as open space, commercial and industrial land use, and youth population. She wondered, 'How could this help decision makers and citizens make informed decisions and learn more about our community?'

But all the cities in the exhibit and app were metropolises like Paris, New York, and Tokyo. The city where Sohl works and lives was missing from the screen. "I wanted to be a part of it. I wanted to see more communities the size of Sioux Falls up there, too," she said.

This year, Sohl's wish came true after she stepped forward with data for her city. So when people scrolled through the cities on the new Urban Observatory app's interface at this year's conference, there was Sioux Falls, population 164,676, right there between Singapore and Sydney, Australia.

OGC Requests Comment on LandInfra Conceptual Model

OGC Requests Comment on LandInfra Conceptual Model | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC(R)) membership has issued a Request for Comments on the OGC LandInfra Conceptual Model.

This document, the first public draft of the OGC’s proposed UML conceptual model for land parcels and the built environment, communicates the proposed intent and content of a new candidate OGC standard to be called the OGC InfraGML Encoding Standard. The UML conceptual model establishes a single set of consistent concepts that could be implemented in GML (as InfraGML) or in other encoding mechanisms.

After reviewing the existing LandXML format, the OGC Land and Infrastructure Domain Working Group (LandInfraDWG) decided that a fresh start standard was warranted. The new standard would have a use case driven subset of LandXML functionality, but it would be consistent with the OGC standards baseline, implemented with the OGC Geography Markup Language (GML), and supported by a Unified Model Language (UML) conceptual model.

Small Town, Big Dreams | ArcWatch | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
When residents of South Windsor, Connecticut, want to report a damaged stop sign, a dead animal on the road, or a missed trash pickup, they can use the town's new iOS mobile app developed by Esri to alert the town's staff to the problem.

And if public works employees spot and fix a pothole, they can use the same app on their town-issued iPhone or iPad to report to their supervisors that the work was completed. The Town of South Windsor Maps Viewer mobile app—also available online via the Citizen Service Request dashboard—is just one of the Esri ArcGIS powered apps South Windsor uses since obtaining an Esri Small Municipal and County Government Enterprise License Agreement (ELA).

The ELA includes unlimited access to many components in the ArcGIS platform, including ArcGIS for Desktop, ArcGIS for Server, and developer tools to build desktop and mobile apps, along with a subscription to ArcGIS Online.

"The real win for us, a community of 26,000, is everything we can dream, we have the tools to build," said Scott E. Roberts, the town's chief information officer and director of information technology.

Study Launched to Quantify the Economic Benefits of GPS | Inside GNSS

Study Launched to Quantify the Economic Benefits of GPS | Inside GNSS | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
A new study is underway to estimate the economic benefit of GPS and quantify what’s at stake if anything interferes with its navigation signals.

Launched at the request of the National Executive Committee (ExCom) for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT), the first segment of the two-part study would look at major uses of GPS. It will estimate the benefits derived from the system and describe the costs that would be incurred if GPS became unavailable, compiling the results in an interim report.

The second part of the analysis would build on that, expanding the research to include non-economic benefits, international benefits, future benefits, and an estimate of the economic costs of a long-term denial of GPS.

Geo-demographic information helps retailers meet customer demands

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The leading provider of retail and supplier category optimization solutions, Galleria, announced its Behavioral Cluster Planning (BCP) “Xtreme” solution will now include Esri location intelligence. Merchandisers can gain more insight into their customers to efficiently cluster stores and balance workload with sales and margins. Category planners, buyers, and merchandise analysts will benefit with better knowledge about customers, products, and locations.

“Often, retailers have limited or no visibility to external factors that affect demand,” said Kent Smith, Vice President of Business Development for Galleria North America. “Knowing how the presence of coffee shops impacts gourmet sales, how the positioning of hospitals correlates to flower sales, and how sports clubs can drive a different pattern of sales in athletic apparel is invaluable. The combination of Galleria’s BCP and Esri’s TapestrySM Segmentation data and location analytics will allow retailers to truly understand why things happen where they do. Fusing these incredible insights represents the ‘missing link’ in analysis.”

Esri's Tapestry Data Provides Greater Precision to Lumate Mobile Advertising Platform

Esri's Tapestry Data Provides Greater Precision to Lumate Mobile Advertising Platform | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Redlands, California— Jan 8, 2015 — Innovative mobile Ad Tech start-up Lumate, based in St. Louis, Missouri is now using Esri’s location platform and Tapestry Segmentation data to help mobile advertising customers pinpoint audiences even more accurately. Esri's Tapestry data ensures that the ads delivered to each device are contextually relevant to the viewer. For example, Lumate can now target travelers in a busy airport with an ad for food from a venue that’s not only nearby, but also one they are more likely to frequent, based on their lifestyle information.

“We connect millions of advertisements to billions of impressions, and because we are performance focused, we assume the advertising risk," said R. J. Miller, vice president and co-founder of Lumate. "Tapestry data enables us to make smart, real-time ad placements that connect the most relevant ad to its audience. The insight we gain helps us deliver the right message to the right place and takes the risk out of our ad trading.”

Tapestry data is applied as a filter to the hundreds of thousands of bid requests that Lumate sees every second across more than 800 million unique mobile devices. This insight enables Lumate to more successfully differentiate its services and business value in the $18 billion a year ad market through improved location-based demographic targeting and identification.
