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.

Espaço. Agora pode visitar o sistema solar através do Google Maps | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Há já alguns anos que o Google Earth permite explorar o espaço sideral. No entanto, agora, a ferramenta da empresa que nos permite chegar ao nosso destino sem nos perdermos, o Google Maps, abriu portas ao Sistema Solar.

PUB

Nesta segunda-feira, a empresa anunciou a nova funcionalidade denominada “Planetas”. Mas o nome pode enganar. Isto porque, através desta ferramenta, é possível visitar não só planetas, como também planetas anões, a lua ou a Estação Espacial Internacional.

A gentle introduction to data visualisation using R

A gentle introduction to data visualisation using R | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Data science students often focus on machine learning algorithms, overlooking some of the more routine but important skills of the profession.  I’ve lost count of the number of times I have advised students working on projects for industry clients to curb their keenness to code and work on understanding the data first.  This is important because, as people (ought to) know, data doesn’t speak for itself, it has to be given a voice; and as data-scarred professionals know from hard-earned experience, one of the best ways to do this is through visualisation.

The economic impact of geospatial services

The economic impact of geospatial services | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"The impact of geospatial services also varies from country to country—showing that there’s still room in many places to maximize the benefits of geospatial services for everyone. To do so, the geospatial industry, businesses, NGOs and governments in these areas will need to work together to promote, adopt and implement existing and new applications of geospatial technology.

Why QGIS should be part of everyone's GIS toolbox - Geospatial Brainstorming

Why QGIS should be part of everyone's GIS toolbox - Geospatial Brainstorming | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
QGIS is an open source desk-top GIS program. It plays the same role as ArcMap in the ESRI ecosystem. QGIS even comes with QGIS Browser, which is similar in function to ArcCatalog. Most GIS analysts in the US learn ArcGIS in college and work for companies that have ArcGIS available. Many people are under the impression that if they have access to ArcGIS, there is no advantage to their company for them to learn QGIS.

Smart Cities - The Opportunities and Threats for Telecom Companies (Telcos) | LinkedIn

Smart Cities - The Opportunities and Threats for Telecom Companies (Telcos) | LinkedIn | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
An innovative city that uses Information and Communication Technologies(ICTs) and other means to improve the quality of life, efficiency of urban operations, services and competitiveness while ensuring that it meets the needs of present and future generations with respect to social, economic and environmental aspects. A smart city can also be described as the integration of technology with a strategic approach to sustainability, citizen well being, cost reduction and economic development.

Nowadays, the word “smart” is seemingly getting attached to almost anything from the ubiquitous mobile phone to almost anything. The first wave of smart cities was fixated on technological solutions. The focus was focused more on trying to find uses for technology, rather than asking how smart technology can improve urban policy and planning.

GIS and Bayesian Belief Networks ~ GIS Lounge

GIS and Bayesian Belief Networks ~ GIS Lounge | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Bayesian networks, or Bayesian belief networks (BBN), are directed graphs with probability tables, where the nodes represent relevant variable dependencies that can be continuous or discrete. The arcs represent causal relationships between a variable and outcome. As an example, an input such as “weather” could affect how one drives their car. The intent of such networks is to understand events that have a degree of uncertainty. In effect, they look at probabilistic events, where variables may define if something could occur and what those relationships are that can cause something to occur (e.g., a car accident in the example given).[1]

LandViewer is a powerful satellite data processing and analytics platforms. It allows you to select a geographic area for analysis, choose various types of remote sensing data and do all sorts of analytics on-the-fly.

I reviewed LandViewer a few months ago, and it was very impressive. With the latest update, it got even better. Besides initially available Landsat 8 and Sentinel 2 you can now access the huge data archives of Landsat 4, Landsat 5, Landsat 7 and MODIS, including coverage of the entire surface of the Earth and daily updates.

Ireland transforms mapping, adding intelligence to data.

Ireland transforms mapping, adding intelligence to data. | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Once you start asking questions of your data, it doesn’t take long to realize when key details are missing. The location data that underpins mapmaking is of limited use if it only indicates where something is (its address, coordinates, or place-name). It gains intelligence if attributes are added to describe the what and why.
Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi), the national mapping authority, has long been a technology innovator. It has a 30-year history of using computers for map production. However, some time ago, its leaders began to realize that they were in danger of falling behind. How did they know? Because their customers kept asking for more intelligent data.

En los últimos años, muchas zonas del mundo sufren periodos de sequía de intensidad variable, que afecta no solo a la agricultura (y a los ingresos de las personas que viven del campo) sino también a la vida en las ciudades, afectando al abastecimiento de agua. En situaciones extremas y en algunas zonas del planeta puede causar la emigración de personas e incluso causar hambrunas y muertes.

Sin llegar a esos extremos, el ahorro de agua es un tema delicado que origina múltiples problemas en ciudades y zonas densamente pobladas.
