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.

Re-evaluating your GIS, by Thierry Gregorius - Exprodat Blog

Re-evaluating your GIS, by Thierry Gregorius - Exprodat Blog | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
As a GIS consultant I sometimes spend surprisingly little time on GIS. Contrary to what clients might expect, my advice is usually not to rush into solutions. Instead, we first spend some time defining the problem. This is an investment that repays itself many times over once the project is delivered. It sounds a lot more trivial than it is, as often the problem needs reframing before it can be tackled successfully. When, for example, geologists say they are able to spend only 30% of their time on geology, it pays to consider what problem GIS is exactly supposed to solve. No map gizmo, however sexy, will make much of a difference unless it also addresses the other 70%. Once the problem is clearly defined, the solution basically designs itself. And implemented correctly, it will deliver measurable results and benefits.
The oil and gas industry may be facing tough times, but with GIS being faster to implement and easier to use than ever before, the time has never been better to re-evaluate how it could help you grow out of the downturn.
Sorry, did I just mention a solution?

Rising Seas - Interactive: If All The Ice Melted

Rising Seas - Interactive: If All The Ice Melted | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"Explore the world’s new coastlines if sea level rises 216 feet.

The maps here show the world as it is now, with only one difference: All the ice on land has melted and drained into the sea, raising it 216 feet and creating new shorelines for our continents and inland seas.

There are more than five million cubic miles of ice on Earth, and some scientists say it would take more than 5,000 years to melt it all. If we continue adding carbon to the atmosphere, we’ll very likely create an ice-free planet, with an average temperature of perhaps 80 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the current 58."

Generating Spike-Free Digital Surface Models from LiDAR

Generating Spike-Free Digital Surface Models from LiDAR | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
A Digital Surface Model (DSM) represents the elevation of the landscape including all vegetation and man-made objects. An easy way to generate a DSM raster from LiDAR is to use the highest elevation value from all points falling into each grid cell. However, this "binning" approach only works when then the resolution of the LiDAR is higher than the resolution…

Communication for GIS Progression (1 of 4 Keys), by Toby Soto

Communication for GIS Progression (1 of 4 Keys), by Toby Soto | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"This post is a continuation on the “Avoid the Legacy GIS Technology Lock” (http://munigovguy.com/2016/01/avoid-the-legacy-gis-technology-lock/) series where I pinpointed the issues and results organizations face with running Legacy GIS Technology.

(...)


I have found the following actions to be effective communication vehicles to promote GIS visibility and it’s importance to the overall Enterprise.


1. Utilize a GIS Steering Committee
2. Create or Update a GIS Strategic Plan
3. Include GIS in the IT Strategic Plan
4. Have IT and GIS Project/Architecture Discussions
5. Create an Organizational GIS Users Group

Summary

These five (5) Communication Channels all work in concert with each other for establishing a solid commitment to GIS within the organization.  These channels don’t support themselves though. Depending on the size of your organization, a GIS Manager or Coordinator needs the CIO or IT Manager to support the importance of these communication channels in order to establish relevance.  I have 4 of the 5 completed and have the GIS Strategic Plan in progress.

Let me know how many you can check off as completed and what your experiences have been."

LiDAR Magazine - Real Orthophotos

LiDAR Magazine - Real Orthophotos | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
An orthophoto is by definition a geometrically corrected image of uniform scale, resolution and quality. An orthophoto, may be created from a single or multiple photographs (hundreds or even thousands) which are processed using photogrammetric methods in order to produce an orthogonal projection view of a site (like a map) or a facade (like an elevation drawing). In this article we will call this kind of orthophoto, the "real" orthophoto to distinguish it from its recently introduced adversary, the pointcloud orthophoto.

Traditionally, and before the dynamic emergence of 3D laser scanners, surveying engineers specializing in photogrammetry would acquire large datasets of image data in order to geometrically document large areas, buildings or objects in large detail and deliver high resolution and precision synthetic imagery and 3D models. It can be said that photogrammetric surveys were the predecessor of high definition surveys. Through photogrammetric processing an engineer could always obtain a pointcloud and document the form of any given object or space according to any desired specifications for resolution and accuracy.
