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.

Smart Mapping Part 5: Tips and Tricks | ArcGIS Blog | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Whenever possible, Smart Mapping aims to offload work from the map author to the machine. The goal is not to take control away from the author, but rather, make informed, intelligent choices and partner with the map author so we can all work faster.

 

Here are some tips and tricks to get the most out of Smart Mapping.

 

 

Tip #1: Decide what range of your data to emphasizeTip #2: Classifying your data? Create custom class names!Tip #3: Choose the right color rampTip #4: How to map change (over time) Tip #5: Explore advanced transparency effectsTip #6: Change All Symbols versus Change One SymbolTip #7: Advanced Feature – Rotating Point Symbols

Mobile GIS Improves Collaboration | Trimble Geospatial, Remote Magazine

Mobile GIS Improves Collaboration | Trimble Geospatial, Remote Magazine | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"Mobile geographic information system (GIS) technology has quickly become a critical component of municipalities’ enterprise IT implementations. The technology provides a precise and cost-effective means of collecting geospatial data. Municipal governments and their public works departments have been early adopters of this powerful technology, relying on mobile GIS to help improve the quality and speed of data collection and stimulate collaboration between field and office staff.


An ongoing stream of accurate field data must be collected and analyzed by public works department employees to sustain the municipal workflow. There are many benefits that can be gained from deploying mobile GIS including the creation of intuitive solutions that are tailored to specific workflows. Mobile GIS applications require little training and can be successfully deployed throughout an entire field operation."

Accessing Multidimensional Scientific Data using Python | ArcGIS Blog

Accessing Multidimensional Scientific Data using Python | ArcGIS Blog | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"With the 10.2 release, a new Python library, netCDF4, began shipping as part of the ArcGIS platform.  netCDF4 allows you to easily inspect, read, aggregate and write netCDF files.  NetCDF (Network Common Data Form) is one of the most important formats for storing and sharing scientific data.  The ArcGIS platform has had geoprocessing tools which read and write netCDF data since the 9.x release.  However, there may be times when you may want to access or create netCDF data directly using Python.  There are four ways of interacting with netCDF files in ArcGIS; geoprocessing tools, the NetCDFFileProperties ArcPy class, the new netCDF Python module, and the multidimensional mosaic dataset.  Which method you use depends on what you are trying to accomplish.  A summary of different ways of interacting with netCDF files appears in the table below.  This blog post will focus on the new netCDF4 Python library."
