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.

When you think about education, it’s easy to feel jaded. After all, waves of education reform have swept over American schools and colleges for decades, and tangible improvements—let alone a sea change—don’t exactly spring to mind.
But new hope has arisen in recent years, and with good reason, because for the first time teaching practices are being aligned with how the mind actually works. Studies are showing that there are certain things that teachers can do to make substantial improvements in student learning.

Sentinel-2B, Europe’s next Copernicus satellite is being readied by engineers from Airbus for a 7 March 2017 lift-off from Kourou, French Guiana. Sentinel-2B will be the fifth satellite of Europe’s environmental monitoring program Copernicus to be launched. Copernicus is an operational program led by the European Commission (EC) in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA). The Copernicus Sentinels supply remote sensing data of the Earth to deliver key operational services related to environment and security.
“Sentinel-2B is the next important milestone in Europe’s Copernicus program for which Airbus is a key contributor. With two highly sophisticated satellites the Sentinel-2 mission will reach its full capability,” said Nicolas Chamussy, Head of Space Systems at Airbus, “and the wide ranging user community will get more “colourful” data in near real-time.”

Much has been prognosticated about the earth-shattering consequences of deprecating Google Earth Enterprise back in March of 2015. Uncertainty of the route Google was taking may have sent some companies scrambling to shift their geospatial technology stack, while others chose to wait it out, taking solace in Google’s official support through March 2017. Now, the situation looks a lot more clear. The future of Google Earth Enterprise is open.
The announcement Jan. 30, 2017 marks the beginning of a new milestone for GEE. The capabilities of GEE Server, Fusion and Portable will be open sourced under the Apache 2.0 license by the end of March this year and available to the global community of open source developers on Github.com. While the technical details of this seismic event are being wrought out, there is some certainty regarding the potential of a more open Google geospatial platform.
A Python Primer for ArcGIS® Workbook I (1 of 3) The automation of geoprocessing tasks is a common practice among GIS professionals. Python is the standard programming language for ArcGIS and other fields such as remote sensing, GPS, spatial modeling, and statistical analysis. A Python Primer for ArcGIS® Workbook series combines fundamental Python programming structures to help professionals automate common geoprocessing functions. Thorough explanations of programming concepts are included along with user-friendly demonstrations that enable readers to develop programs on their own. In addition, chapters contain exercises and questions that aid in the application of each chapter’s highlighted principles.

"The redesigned Living Atlas of the World website (http://livingatlas.arcgis.com/en/#s=0) has been released. The goals of the redesign were to make it easier to discover Living Atlas content and contribute items to the Living Atlas. The Living Atlas—available through ArcGIS Online—is the foremost collection of global geographic information used to support critical decision making. Curated by Esri with contributions from its partner and user communities, the Living Atlas contains valuable maps, data layers, tools, services, and apps for geographic analysis."
Generalising about Africa is dangerous. With 47 countries (or 53 if you use the UN list and include island nations such as Cape Verde, Madagascar and the Comoros), it is hugely diverse. The state of economic development, social welfare, environmental quality, population growth and political development varies greatly across the continent. Yet there are many problems which are common, even if the incidence is variable. Environmental sustainability is just one of them.
Python is widely used for data analysis and you might have considered learning it yourself (if not, or if you’re still looking for that bit of extra motivation to get started, see why you should be learning Python below). Of course, learning on your own can be a challenge and some guidance is always helpful. Guidance to learn Python for working with data is exactly what this article will provide you with.
We will discuss steps you should take for learning Python accompanied with some essential resources, such as the free Python for Data Analysis courses and tutorials from DataCamp as well as reading and learning materials.
Isn’t it always tempting to think we are doing well, so why change? But the truth is that change is inevitable and innovation is the only way out. The danger is to be complacent and satisfied with maintaining old ways just because they have worked well in the past. A decade ago, geospatial as a …
Readers of this magazine are unlikely to need convincing about the inherent utility of maps. As representations of information, maps enable the analysis of spatial distributions and patterns and are a medium for communication both for and by the mapmaker. In fact, a map is a common metaphor for the arrangement of any type of information because being able to visualize spatial relationships among the data, whether words, numbers, shapes, images, objects, or concepts, helps us interpret and extract meaning.
GIS was designed for mapping geographic space, though a printed map is only one of many GIS products. I remind my students to postpone printing of their layout designs as long as possible, knowing that once hard copy is produced, the connection with the life-giving database is severed. In fields with a long history of, and expectation for, printed maps, such as the geological sciences, there are calls for greater acceptance of data sharing in alternative formats, given the time commitment involved to design, produce and distribute paper products. With improvements in the interoperability of applications and the increased emphasis on web mapping, we can expect fewer projects to yield printed maps in the future.
