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.

In February, Esri will be releasing the fifth book in its Mapping the Nation Series. A collection of maps, Mapping the Nation: Building a More Resilient Future shows how GIS is being used at the federal level in the US government. The print version of latest volume contains 118 maps from more [...]
Pictureprep is an easy to use tool to visualize a camera's field and depth of view on a Google Map. To view the field of view and depth of view on the map you simply need to right-click on the map once to set the camera's position and right-click again to set the subject's position.
The map sidebar includes a number of options to adjust the views based on the camera settings, including sensor size, focal length, aperture and focus distance. The map sidebar also allows you to enter a date and time to view the sunlight direction for the time you plan to shoot.
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.
Esri announces that geodemographic information for 57 additional countries has been added to its ready-to-use ArcGIS apps including Esri Business Analyst Online (BAO) and Esri Community Analyst. Up-to-date population, income, employment, and consumer spending information helps businesses—including retailers, real estate brokers, merchandisers, supply chain managers, and marketers—better understand local markets all around the world.
“In today’s global economy, organizations are interested in providing the best services and goods to customers in more than one area,” said Simon Thompson, director of commercial business at Esri. “Esri’s comprehensive data provides the insight organizations need to do business at a hyperlocal level and really meet the needs and demands of local consumers.”
"The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) membership has approved the OGC IndoorGML Encoding Standard. This OGC standard specifies an open abstract data model and XML schema for indoor spatial information. The driving requirement for IndoorGML is navigation.
IndoorGML provides a coherent, technology-neutral description of a building’s navigable spaces that can be used by any number of navigation app developers and platform providers. Because IndoorGML is an application schema of the OGC Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding Standard, it enables easy integration of indoor navigation and outdoor navigation systems. IndoorGML’s developers anticipate that this will benefit emergency responders, shoppers, airport visitors and many others."
Poverty affects billions of people around the globe. On a daily basis, they face low wages and substandard health, education, and living standards. Because of this, poverty must be understood and approached as a multidimensional issue.
Through the use of storytelling, videos, and interactive maps, we'll take a look at one method of measuring global poverty. This measure, called the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI), addresses poverty through an integrative approach.

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.
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.”
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.
Mapbox has released a gorgeous map of all the roads in Japan. OpenStreetMap in Japan only shows roads and streets and omits all over map features.
The roads on the map are colored by the last date that they were edited on OpenStreetMap. Roads colored blue haven't been edited since 2007. The yellow roads have been edited in the past year. The Mapbox post on the map includes a link to a full-screen map. The map embedded in the post however includes a button to quickly toggle to view close-ups of major cities on the map.
