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.

GIS and Virtual Reality ~ GIS Lounge | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Virtual reality (VR) has been integrated with GIS for some time, with academic and industry development ongoing since the 1990s. What is different now is data integration and powerful platforms no longer require specialized workstations or high performance computing. From Esri’s CityEngine to more specialized software such as GeoScope, VR, or what has been called VRGIS, has now moved into area such as utility in Big Data applications, VR within mobile devices, and allowing users to more easily create sophisticated VR visualizations without programming

How to leverage the distributed computing power of GeoAnalytics Server

How to leverage the distributed computing power of GeoAnalytics Server | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
When I first heard the term - big data, I was confused. How big is ‘big data’? As I got exposure to some so-called big datasets, I got a better understanding. Big data doesn’t necessarily have to contain billions of points, lines or polygons. It is simply any large dataset that you experience a hard time analyzing or just cannot analyze using traditional data processing tools.

At ArcGIS 10.5, we introduced ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server. You can now leverage distributed computing power of multiple machines and cores for big data analysis through ArcGIS Pro and Portal for ArcGIS. In this blog, we will walk through a scenario where we detect patterns of nearly half a million crime points by aggregating them into hexbins. To explain the difference, I’ll run the same analysis using two different methods: a traditional Model Builder workflow and a GeoAnalytics tool. We will then compare the results and speeds between the two. Both workflows will take place within ArcGIS Pro. Since this is a big dataset and my ArcGIS Pro is directly connected to our Portal for ArcGIS, my analysis reaches out to the cloud for the data.

UrtheCast building precursor radar satellite, delays OptiSAR constellation by a year - SpaceNews.com

UrtheCast building precursor radar satellite, delays OptiSAR constellation by a year - SpaceNews.com | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
An unnamed backer of Canadian Earth observation company UrtheCast’s proposed radar and optical satellite constellation has asked for UrtheCast to develop a standalone radar satellite ahead of the rest of its constellation.

The customer signed a contract in “excess of one hundred million Canadian dollars” ($78.4 million) for a synthetic aperture radar, or SAR, satellite, including in-orbit operations support and some aspects of the ground system, UrtheCast said Aug. 14. Vancouver-based UrtheCast plans to use that satellite to pave the way for the larger constellation of eight optical satellites and eight dual-band X- and L-band radar satellites, “the date of which is now pushed out by at least a year,” to 2023, the company said.

Public Participation Using 3D City Models

Public Participation Using 3D City Models | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The importance of involving the general public in the design of urban plans and development scenarios is widely recognised. Today’s web technology and availability of 3D city models at various levels of detail enable local governments to communicate spatial plans effectively to their citizens. They also enable citizens to comment on and propose alternatives, thus providing feedback to local authorities. This means public participation is enhanced through e-participation. Read on for details of the opportunities offered by e-participation in Kenya.

Reimagine INSPIRE by Leveraging Open Data and Web GIS, by Jack Dangermond et al. | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE) Directive has made good progress toward implementation by all member states. On the occasion of the INSPIRE Conference 2017 and in keeping with the theme INSPIRE a Digital Europe: Thinking Out of the Box, it seems fitting to comment on the current state of the directive compared to global geospatial technology trends.

INSPIRE represents the most complex spatial data infrastructure project ever attempted, with the goal of aligning the 28 member states of the European Union (EU). It may prove helpful to reflect on what works; what has changed; and what needs to change by the established end date of 2021, given the shifting technology landscape.

Dymaxion Map Projection ~ GIS Lounge

Dymaxion Map Projection ~ GIS Lounge | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Humans have always had a particular fascination with understanding the world around them, and this appeal can be seen in the large number of maps invented throughout history starting with the ancient Greeks. All different varieties of maps have appeared, highlighting certain geographical, cultural, political, or social phenomena. Maps are also a common part of our everyday lives. Maps, however, in themselves have a fundamental flaw: maps are almost always incomplete representations of the earth since the earth is a sphere and maps are usually two-dimensional flat surfaces.

Over the years, there are been many attempts to create a map projection that more fully represents the Earth in its relative shape, distance, area, and direction. The Mercator world map and Robinson projection are popular map projections that we are familiar with. However, these maps still have some extreme distortions. For example, in the Mercator projection, the poles are problematic with Greenland appearing to be three times its relative size and Antarctica appearing as a long, thin, white strip across the bottom. In the Robinson projection, Greenland still appears to be larger than its actual size. Distortions continue to be a problem for every two-dimensional map.

Real-time GIS is not a new concept, but its growing potential has significantly evolved in the last 10 years. Certain technological hurdles had to be overcome before it was feasible to access and utilize real-time data, the biggest being widespread implementation of GNSS. Other key factors that encouraged the development of real-time GIS include decreased costs of sensors, increased use of cell phones, widespread Wi-Fi technology and assisted GNSS, which triangulates using satellites and pinpoints locations between provider cell towers.

Tourists Become Citizen Scientists with Sea Turtle Tracking App | ArcNews | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Though sea turtles have cruised the oceans for more than 100 million years, nearly all seven species are now classified as endangered, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Yet sea turtles can frequently be spotted swimming along ocean currents or crawling onto beaches to lay their eggs.

To help researchers keep track of these marine reptiles, a new smartphone app is giving snorkelers, scuba divers, and beachgoers around the world the power to upload photos and information about sea turtles. The app, called TURT (which stands for Turtles Uniting Researchers and Tourists), ensures that sea turtle sightings can be easily reported by anyone, turning tourists into citizen scientists.

But all of these natural icons pale in comparison to the dramatic formations that lie beneath the ocean. Next to the deep sea's mountains and gorges, the Grand Canyon is a mere dimple, Mount Everest a bunny slope and the Highlands an anthill on the horn of Africa.
