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.

Geography Increasingly a Priority for Schools, Employers – InsideSources

Geography Increasingly a Priority for Schools, Employers – InsideSources | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
More than fifteen years after first hitting the market, the Advanced Placement Human Geography course remains one of the College Board’s fastest growing offerings with nearly 185,000 test-takers in 2016. Experts who have followed the assessment’s yearly double-digit growth say that the rise of the assessment’s popularity coincides with increased career opportunities for those with skills in Geographic Information Systems—an industry that has mushroomed with technological advancements and the proliferation of quality open source and commercial software programs.

Chris Tucker is the chairman of the board of the American Geographical Society, which is based in New York and bills itself as the oldest geographical society in the United States. Tucker, who spoke with InsideSources by phone, is not a geographer by training but has worked for a number of businesses and nonprofits active in the geography space. One of Tucker’s more recent projects, MapStory.org, allows users to create and edit maps on everything from avian migratory patterns to the political evolution of Central America.

What is a Horizontal Datum Reference Frame? - GIS Geography

What is a Horizontal Datum Reference Frame? - GIS Geography | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
A horizontal datum provides a reference frame for coordinates on the Earth.

A long time ago, surveyors put brass monuments in the Earth with precise X, Y locations. When these monuments were combined together using a technique called triangulation, this formed our horizontal datum.

Using a datum, all points on North America could be located with accuracy and be referenced to

But different types of horizontal datums exist.

Web App Sheds Light on Solar Energy Potential | ArcUser

The Northern Virginia Solar Map was successfully completed and unveiled in August 2016. GIS technology and Esri's ArcGIS software proved indispensable in the development of the web app, which lets property owners evaluate the benefits and impacts of placing photovoltaic (PV) panels on their roofs.


This is a portion of the solar radiation raster of Northern Virginia.

"With existing GIS technology, can the solar energy potential of northern Virginia building roofs be determined and provided to the public as an online service?" Robert Lazaro, director of Regional Energy and Sustainability Policy at Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) had asked. At the time, it was not clear if such a project could be undertaken. NVRC began thinking about creating an online solar map that would provide information on the potential of this alternative energy source.

Cylindrical Projection: Mercator, Transverse Mercator and Miller - GIS Geography

Cylindrical Projection: Mercator, Transverse Mercator and Miller - GIS Geography | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
When you place a cylinder around a globe and unravel it, you get the cylindrical projection.

Strangely enough, you see cylindrical projections like the Mercator and Miller for wall maps even though it inflates the Arctic.

But it makes sense why navigators and even Google Maps use the Mercator projections – it’s all because of the unique properties of cylinders.

You can place it in a vertical, horizontal or oblique position. Each one has their own use in mapping the world.

So let’s look at some of these advantages and disadvantages. But first let’s start with a couple of cylindrical projection examples.
