Researcher » Fernando Gil, New University of Lisbon, Institute of Statistics and Information Management, Portugal, Geoinformatics (GIS)
Fernando Gil's insight:

Dear colleagues,

Yesterday, July 25, 2014 I defended, with success, my Master's thesis in GIS and Science entitled "The implementation of an Enterprise Geographical Information System to support Cadastre and Expropriation activities. The case of Ferbritas Cadastre Information System.", at ISEGI/NOVA, Lisbon - Portugal (http://www.slideshare.net/FernandoGil/fernando-gil-master-thesis-public-presentation)

I just published my thesis at https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Fernando_Gil4/publications, so I invite you all to go to ResearchGate site.

Best regards, Fernando

Learning GIS programming: An overview | Geoawesomeness

Learning GIS programming: An overview | Geoawesomeness | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

The diversity of programming languages and tools being used in the Geospatial industry today is truly staggering. Depending on what the position requires, one would be expected to have expertise in SQL, python, C++, Java or Javascript, Flex and PHP (just to name a few). Knowledge and competence in programming is a essential skill set and a critical requirement for most Geospatial job opportunities these days.  A vast majority of job openings in the Geospatial industry require some expertise in programming, application development and software management.

 

As Geospatial professionals/graduates/students, some of us overlook the importance of programming in our careers. Some of us believe that our spatial skill sets are niche enough to compensate for the lack of our programming expertise. Well that might not be totally wrong. However, knowledge of programming is most certainly going to open up a whole new array of possibilities! It might be a good idea to have a look at recent job postings in the Geospatial industry to get an overview of the requirements :)

StreetMapper Maps French Railways for Safer Tracks - Directions Magazine

StreetMapper Maps French Railways for Safer Tracks - Directions Magazine | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

FIT ESIC is helping France’s national railway company SNCF improve safety and inform track upgrade works with a mobile laser scanning system from 3D Laser Mapping. Owned and operated by FIT ESIC, the rail mounted StreetMapper was used to survey several hundreds of kilometres of track, generating engineering grade survey data on behalf of SNCF. The laser generated computer model was used to build a detailed 3D topographic map of the tracks and its surroundings. This provided length data and cross profiles as well as detecting potentially dangerous objects near the track.

GIS Implementation: 7 Reasons For Failure And 
7 Remedies For Success
By Curt Hinton And David Holdstock (President And CEO Of GTG)

geotg.com

Stories and presentations about GIS success are common. after attending a local GIS conference, users typically walk away feeling that GIS is a “can’t miss” technology; it offers all the “bells and whistles” needed to wow an organization.

But a large majority of GIS implementations are less than successful. a sizable amount of them often are utter failures—they don’t live up to the promise of enabling an organization with easy-to-use geospatial tools that allow end users a positive and productive experience. Why is that?

The technology has been purported as being “must have” and mission critical for the last 25 years. Shouldn’t we have learned from our collective mistakes and not continue to suffer the fate of an underutilized, under appreciated and misunderstood technology? continued…

European Regional Committee of UN-GGIM created

European Regional Committee of UN-GGIM created | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

New York: On August 7, 2014, the European Regional Committee of the United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM: Europe) was created.  This significant action is the third and final stage in a formation process that began in November 2012.

This endorsement confirms the UN-GGIM: Europe’s mandate to have increased and close cooperation and coordination with UN-GGIM at a global level and also with other existing institutional structures in Europe. Stefan Schweinfest, Director, United Nations Statistics Division said, “The new regional committee will be aligned to the global architecture, which will better address regional and global challenges especially in the context of sustainable development and humanitarian assistance.”

UN-GGIM: Europe will enable the transition towards an integrated agenda within the region and between the regional and the global levels. There are two main focus points that build on the issues already identified by the Committee of Experts: data definition and access conditions; and interoperability and data infrastructures for geospatial information supporting the goals of UN-GGIM.

UN-GGIM: Europe will hold its first meeting in Chisinau, Moldova on October 1, 2014 to elect its executive committee and create a draft work programme.

New Multidimensions in ArcMap | ArcGIS Blog

New Multidimensions in ArcMap | ArcGIS Blog | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

by Dawn Wright on August 10, 2014


As was shown at this year’s Esri User Conference, ArcMap now incorporates multidimensional data into GIS workflows to further the advancement of science (see Philip Mielke’s excellent plenary presentation). This is a very important concept that we at Esri would like re-emphasize. With all the attention and focus on ArcGIS Pro, it is imperative that we do not forget that ArcGIS Pro will not do everything that Desktop can do, and that we continue to improve and enhance Desktop as well. ArcGIS for Desktop is still being enhanced and remains one of our most powerful GIS products (i.e., bigger than an app), providing much of the capability to fuel the ArcGIS platform. Our goal is to ensure a long term commitment to Desktop. ArcGIS Pro is just a complementary application to what our users already know about Desktop. While there are a number of enhancements to Desktop at 10.3, the multidimensional improvements are very important as we seek to advance science, and to position ArcGIS to always focus on advancing geographic information science in particular.

Bienvenue sur le géoportail OpenGeodata.fr



Pourquoi OpenGeodata.fr ?

Depuis quelques années, la libéralisation des données publiques connaît un essor notable en France. De nombreuses organisations ont pris la décision de diffuser auprès d'un large public une partie de leurs données en Open Data, c'est-à-dire sans contrainte économique, juridique ou politique, dans le but de promouvoir la mise en valeur de ces contenus. Aujourd’hui, près de la moitié des contenus diffusés en Open Data par les collectivités territoriales sont de nature géographique (images, vecteurs ou tables contenant des informations de localisation). Cependant, la diversité des plateformes et leur hétérogénéité fonctionnelle rend souvent difficile l'exploitation immédiate de cette dimension géographique (peu ou pas de métadonnées structurées, pas de prévisualisation des contenus, des formats de données complexes, pas d'outils de cartographie en ligne, …). L'objectif du portail OpenGeodata.fr est donc de vous proposer une sélection des meilleurs contenus Open Data géographiques disponibles en France dans une forme prête à l'emploi et intégrable avec les outils et technologies SIG (bureautiques, web ou mobiles) du marché et notamment la plateforme ArcGIS.
