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 People Launches Gruntify | GIS People

GIS People Launches Gruntify | GIS People | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Fully developed in close collaboration with a client and PwC, GIS People has launched Gruntify (www.gruntify.com) – the ultimate map app suite for managing assets.

Asset management and defect remediation is estimated to cause over $3 billion in damages per year to Australia Government-owned assets alone. Graffiti, litter, damaged street furniture – just to name a few – are problems that most asset owners struggle to deal with effectively.

Gruntify provides a seamless end-to-end technical solution that makes it easy to:

Collect data with location information,
Ensure quality control of inputs/outputs,
Schedule jobs for remediation,
Employ geospatial analysis for hotspot identification, and
Implement financial reporting.

USDOT takes a swing at Spatial Inequality in US cities

USDOT takes a swing at Spatial Inequality in US cities | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The promise of equality is fundamental to an understanding of the United States, yet daily news stories remind of us of the many inequalities which persist in our country: the gap between the incomes earned by men and women, justice system decisions that seem more affected by race than evidence, even health outcomes that are determined by one's socioeconomic class.  Today, the gap between rich and poor is nearly as great as that which divided our nation just before the Great Depression of the 1930s. To say we are a country in crisis is not saying enough.  But last month, a volley in the fight against inequality was fired from what may appear to be an unlikely source: the US Department of Transportation.

New Atlas Shows Extent of Light Pollution – What Does it Mean for our Health?

New Atlas Shows Extent of Light Pollution – What Does it Mean for our Health? | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The new comprehensive World Atlas of Artificial Night Sky Brightness has just appeared in Science Advances. Written by a group of distinguished scientists lead by Italian Fabio Falchi, it is a noteworthy accomplishment. The first atlas appeared in 2001, but was based on a less precise satellite measurement system. This latest atlas provides far more clarity.

The atlas measures what is called artificial sky glow – reflected light scatter in the atmosphere from the electric lighting below – across the world. Sky glow results from light pollution, or the excess of electric light during the night. But “light pollution” is not like “water pollution” which is pollution of water. It’s actually “night pollution by electric light.”

SEAI - GIS: Helping maximise the value of Ireland’s renewable energy resources

SEAI - GIS: Helping maximise the value of Ireland’s renewable energy resources | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"SEAI launched a new Energy Geographical Information System (GIS) in 2015 (http://maps.seai.ie/giswiki/) to support the development of new sustainable energy schemes in Ireland. We are honoured that this effort and investment was recently recognised with a Special Achievement Award in GIS at the 2016 Esri International Conference in California in June. The award recognises and rewards organisations that have used GIS to improve the world and set new precedents throughout the GIS community. SEAI was the only Irish winner among 167 winning organisations from over 300,000 eligible candidate projects across a broad range of sectors.

The power of GIS systems lies in the ability to combine related databases with geographical analysis tools. For example, on SEAI’s Wind Atlas, data layers include wind speeds, county and electoral divisions, protected sites, and offshore constraints, such as navigation channels. With this information now readily available through a simple online user interface, citizens, policy makers, statutory authorities and developers can all consider the respective opportunities and constraints in their local area. Not that long ago, before we had the power of GIS tools at our fingertips, the immense value of this data and information went untapped. Today however, the technology underpinning GIS now allows a huge amount of information to be handled, visualised and interrogated together."

“Most Livable” Montana City Implements the Esri Parcel Fabric « Earth Imaging Journal: Remote Sensing, Satellite Images, Satellite Imagery

“Most Livable” Montana City Implements the Esri Parcel Fabric « Earth Imaging Journal: Remote Sensing, Satellite Images, Satellite Imagery | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Since William Clark visited the area in 1806, Bozeman, Montana has been attracting visitors with its beautiful landscape and fertile land. Today, the City of Bozeman is the 4th largest city in the state, attracting a steady stream of new residents with its abundance of whitewater kayaking, hiking, fly fishing and mountain climbing. Montana State University’s campus can be found in the City, boasting 15,700 enrolled students in 51 fields of study. Dubbed “the most livable place,” Bozeman is home to nearly 40,000 citizens spread across 19 square miles.
Geographic Technologies Group (GTG) recently worked with Bozeman to improve their land records GIS platform. The City has a progressive and experienced GIS team. They have built numerous datasets and provide services to the entire City. The initial focus of the GIS project was the compilation of data layers to include tax parcels. The City of Bozeman had approximately 25,000 parcels. Traditional editing tools have been utilized to maintain the parcel layer over the past decade; however, the City has been looking for ways to more systematically manage the parcel layer. After a competitive RFP, the City selected GTG to migrate their existing parcel data to the Esri Parcel fabric and provide on-site training. The Esri Parcel Fabric stores parcel data in a continuous surface of connected parcels ensuring that the relationships between polygons, lines and points are maintained. Using this seamless dataset, Bozeman will be able to effectively store and manage all of its land records data including parcels and easements. Jon Henderson, GIS Manager for the City of Bozeman points out, “We are always looking for ways to advance GIS for the City. The tools continue to evolve. We want to take every advantage of the new innovations in GIS to include parcel management.”
