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.

Around the world, an unimaginably large amount of news is produced every single day. While this news is designed to be read by average readers to inform and entertain, to some political scientists it represents something perhaps even more tantalizing: data.
The Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone (GDELT)http://gdeltproject.org/about.html is one attempt to put that data to use. GDELT monitors international media in more 65 languages. It uses automation to track events in real time, find the pertinent information from them and add them to a database of billions of events that now stretches back 30 years.
It's a remarkably ambitious project: GDELT researcher Kalev Leetaru estimates that the database takes in from 600,000 to 1 million articles every day and that it monitors far more (it ignores entertainment and sports stories, for example).
While the definition of BIM and GIS integration is not totally clear, I would like to assert that the OGC Registry Platform is well down the road of integrating GIS and BIM.OGC Registry Platform supports the concept of Registry-Repository. This means that the Registry Platform objects can describe entities in the local Registry Platform respository, or in any number of external respositories managed by someone else. The Registry Platform respository can hold BIM-encoded models in any format in
This video is a brief tutorial on the new Survey Tool in Mission Planner Ground Control software. The Survey Tool allows you to plan a mapping mission (aerial survey) based on mission requirements such as resolution and overlap/sidelap. Mission Planner automatically sets the parameter to trigger the mapping camera at intervals based on distance. The ...
Over the last several months, we at Directions have been hearing a lot about the impact that GPS-enabled dispatching systems can have on the performance and profitability of companies that provide in-home service technicians. Granted, most of it has been coming from companies that sell the
Cool Technology + Creativity + Commitment to Youth
By Carla Wheeler, Esri Writer
"Inspirational messages and incredible technology were hallmarks of the 2015 Esri Developer Summit, which drew 1,800 enthusiastic geodevelopers to Palm Springs, California, for a week in March.
Esri president Jack Dangermond praised the developers for doing the "real work" of building geospatial apps to solve problems. And he encouraged them to do their part to grow the tech community, urging them to commit to mentoring youth interested in geospatial technology. "We need to invest more in the people that solve the problems," said Dangermond."
What was the big technology buzz at the 2015 Esri Developer Summit (DevSummit)?
Esri's development team came up with this list of top takeaways, just in case you missed this year's event. As Esri ArcGIS program manager Jim McKinney said at the Plenary Session, "Whether you are developing for the web or native apps or desktop or enterprise GIS, we've got something for all of you."
In this simple screencast is shown how the Sextante modeler works inside Quantum GIS. The model uses the Mean Shift Segmentation algorithm from Orfeo Toolbox, the “raster to vector” function os SAGA and the native centroids tool of QGIS.

"Spatial Intelligence has been created by the recently acquired Logicalis Group company ITUMA, and its announcement closely follows the acquisition of analytics solutions provider, Trovus. Both form part of the newly created Information Insights business unit at Logicalis UK, as it expands its integrated portfolio of social, mobile, analytics and cloud technologies (SMAC) and services. Ed Charvet, newly appointed Director of Information Insights at Logicalis UK, explains:
The solution has seen rapid uptake in Germany, specifically in the retail sector where customers include international shopping centre specialists Sonae Sierra, with the solution deployed at their Hofgarten Shopping Centre. In the UK, Logicalis is already working with numerous organisations to pilot the solution, including one of the largest discount supermarkets, and a number of hospitality businesses and Universities.

Artificial intelligence is present and growing in adoption in workflows that require the processing of large imagery datasets. Algorithms that are trained for pattern recognition are counting and classifying objects that are then processed for dashboards, reports and other insights. This kind of inf
Learn about how GDELT came to be, who made it, and how you can use it.
GDELT is the largest, most comprehensive, and highest resolution open database of human society ever created. Creating a platform that monitors the world's news media from nearly every corner of every country in print, broadcast, and web formats, in over 100 languages, every moment of every day and that stretches back to January 1, 1979 through present day, with daily updates, required an unprecedented array of technical and methodological innovations, partnerships, and whole new mindsets to bring this all together and make it a reality. Creating a database of a quarter billion georeferenced records covering the entire world over 30 years, coupled with the massive networks that connect all of the people, organizations, locations, themes, and emotions underlying those events, required not only solving unparalleled challenges to create the database, but also a "reimagining" of how we interact and think about societal-scale data.
Over the last three years it has become more and more evident how maps make sense for business. I believe geospatial information (geography) is the new working language for business; a new business intelligence tool and a means of turning location & place into a valuable source of competitive advantage.Given the unique ability for geospatial information to provide a common canvas on which to make complex business decisions, I now put it to you that ‘geography’ should be considered a new business
