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

Conferência "Sistemas de Informação Geográfica - Que políticas afinal?" - Cadastro Predial e SIG - AT | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
"A APDSI realizou, a 22 de outubro de 2014, a conferência "Sistemas de Informação Geográfica - Que políticas afinal?". O encontro decorreu no Auditório da Biblioteca Municipal Orlando Ribeiro, em Telheiras, Lisboa. Em breve disponibilizamos-lhe os vídeos e a notícia.


Portugal tem um atraso significativo na gestão do seu território, não por ausência de competências técnicas e de infra-estruturas tecnológicas, mas porque ao longo dos sucessivos governos, esta não tem sido uma prioridade política de criação de riqueza para o país.


O grupo Geo-Competitivo da APDSI entende que a falta de rigor e transparência na informação sobre o território e a sua posse é responsável por grande parte da corrupção no nosso país, designadamente através da criação de mais-valias avultadas decorrentes da requalificação de terrenos rurais em zonas urbanas. Portugal tem gasto muito dinheiro, maioritariamente de origem comunitária, na criação e manutenção de vários cadastros parcelares sem estar garantida a interoperabilidade entre eles, pelo que na conferência da próxima quarta-feira, dia 22, a APDSI vai procurar demonstrar como se pode fazer uma gestão do território mais sustentável, promovendo o progresso e integração de todos os cidadãos interessados nesse tipo de informação."

Beyond ROI, Key Performance Indices and GIS Close Performance Gaps


[Note:  This is the third post in our new series about Managing GIS.]

A common question we get from our utility customers is, “What is the return on investment (ROI) for GIS?” The reason is most utilities need to justify the cost of building, upgrading, or enhancing their GIS (e.g., investing in a tablet-based damage-assessment app) or doing the same with their GIS data. That justification takes the form of a financial study that answers these questions: What is the payback period of GIS? What is its impact on balance and income sheets? What is the cash flow for the project?

 

Utility financial people call these hard-dollar savings. Hard-dollar savings are a common measuring stick by which to judge the merits of an investment.

 

But there are other measuring sticks, too–especially for successful utilities.  These include safety, customer service, number of accidents, and more.  You’re probably already measuring these through key performance indices.

“Access to knowledge is a basic human right.” Yet sadly as scientists we are often forced to operate in a framework in which this is not always the case. This week sees the celebration of the eighth Open Access Week, and whilst there have undoubtedly been many achievements by the Open Access (OA) movement since 2009, there is still a long way to go before mankind’s basic human right to knowledge is restored.

Cadastre definitions | LinkedIn

Cadastre definitions | LinkedIn | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

At Commission 7 Opening Address at the 1990 FIG Congress a set of clear and concise cadastral definitions were presented, as follows (Henssen & Williamson, 1990):


- Land Registration: is a process of official recording of rights in land through deeds or as title (on properties). It means that there is an official record (the land register) of rights on land or of deeds concerning changes in the legal situation of defined units of land. It gives an answer to the questions "who" and "how";


- Cadastre: is a methodically arranged public inventory of data concerning properties within a certain country or district, based on a survey of their boundaries. Such properties are systematically identified by means of some separate designation. The outlines or boundaries of the property and the parcel identifier are normally shown on large-scale maps, which, together with registers, may show for each separate property the nature, size, value and legal rights associated with the parcel. It gives an answer to the questions "where" and "how much".
