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.

Researchers from Rutgers University have been testing out the theory that speed information matched against road topology provides enough information to be able to figure out a driver’s final location. The research sprung out of the speed data collected by insurance companies to monitor its customer’s driving habits in order [...]

Its contributors include map designers and map users, GIS professionals, engineers who control the servers, etc., working around the world The OpenStreetMap data servers’ organization allows you free access to a rich and permanently updated source of territorial spatial data. Besides its ...
Scientific data is collected from everywhere and used for everything. Research on rising sea levels, climate change, ocean science, forest preservation, energy assurance and more, rely on scientific data. But the power of scientific data can sometimes be overwhelming. One way to maximize data findings is through spatial analytics, which is the answer to a... Read more »
The U.S. faces thousands of national security threats each year; in case of emergency, it's imperative that our wireless telecommunication systems are active and defensible. For that reason, the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences, the research and engineering laboratory of the National
"Approximately 400 billion gallons of water are used in the United States per day. In one year, the average American household uses more than 100,000 gallons both indoors and outdoors.
To protect people from contaminated water, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates toxic discharge and sets standards for water quality. The EPA relies on Esri technologies to help manage water quality and other aspects of the environment."
In October, Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley addressed the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs and Administration (NASPAA) Annual Conference in Washington, DC. He emphasized governments' need to measure performance. In this abbreviated version, he explains how GIS supports 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
In May 2013, a semitruck with an over-height load struck part of the Skagit River Bridge on Interstate 5, causing one span of the bridge to collapse into the water. The bridge’s highest vertical clearance of 18’ was located above the inside lanes; the vertical clearance above the outside lanes
"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."
"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."
"Esri has built the framework for a rivers and streams map that makes real-time stream and river gauge information accessible to ArcGIS Online users.
The Live Stream Gauges map is part of the Living Atlas of the World, which Esri is curating. It includes maps and layers from the ArcGIS user community. When you open the map and click a point on a stream or river, you will see live height and flow data."
"The Master of Science in Geospatial Technologies (Erasmus Mundus Program) is a cooperation between NOVA IMS, in Portugal, the Institute for Geoinformatics (IFGI) of the University of Münster (WWU), in Germany, and the Universitat Jaume I (UJI), in Spain. It is aimed at graduates wishing to obtain qualifications in fields where geographic information is applied and intend to have a multicultural experience.
This Master Degree Program has been selected by the Erasmus Mundus Program of the European Commission as one of the most excellent Master Programs in Europe."
