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.

Today, the Copernicus Sentinel-3A satellite has taken another step towards being fully ‘operational’ as the first data from its Ocean and Land Colour Instrument are made available to monitor the health of our planet.
Following its launch in February, the satellite and instruments have been thoroughly tested and fine-tuned – leading to this important milestone.
Carrying a suite of instruments, Sentinel-3A is arguably the most complex of all the Copernicus Sentinels.

Across the Middle East, Africa and beyond, an increasing number of smart city plans, initiatives and opportunities are emerging.
More than just another technology trend, in many cases these initiatives encapsulate the response that cities are taking to the pressures of a growing population, resource limitations and budget reductions. Put simply, cities need innovative solutions to tackle today's challenges, and the challenges of tomorrow, and ‘smart’ is where many cities are starting.
A recent article in GIM International about harmonising UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems, or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), or "Drone" technologies) regulations and standards is definitely worth reading, providing an excellent summary of this rapidly evolving sector of the geospatial industry. The article, beginning on page 6, is in a special issue of GIM International dedicated exclusively…
Why do we live where we do? For most of us, where we live is determined by an array of lifestyle choices coupled heavily with the location our job. According to the Census Bureau, the average American spends around 26 minutes commuting to work. While the data shows that we no longer live where we work the paradox is, where we live is determined by the work we do and its local availability. Let me explain.
So, you have an ArcGIS Online account and now you want to create, publish, and share some awesome maps. There’s no better way to get started than with the Story Map technology. Using pre-defined templates designed specifically for numerous map styles and uses, there’s a Story Map template for just about everyone and every map! The following are just 10 maps that jumped out at us that give you a small idea of some of the amazing things you can accomplish with the technology.
Over my 20-year Army career, I have commanded topographic units and soldiers who were topographic analysts. During that time the lexicon in the community began to change. The Army redesignated Mapping, Charting, and Geodesy (MC&G) as Geospatial Information and Services (Gl&S). Engineer topographic units were retitled to geospatial units and topographic engineer soldiers were redesignated as geospatial engineers. While the term "geospatial" is now commonly used, it primarily serves as an adjective. This article asserts that the term can be legitimately used as both an adjective and noun. Further, establishing "geospatial" as a noun with an agreed definition will provide a term to anchor future growth in our lexicon and lend clarity to the community dialogue. This article seeks to explain the rationale for and value of establishing "geospatial" as a noun in addition to an adjective.
The Jason-3 satellite is the result of an international partnership between EUMETSAT, the French Space Agency (CNES), the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the European Union, which funds European contributions to Jason-3 operations as part of the European Commission's Copernicus Program.
As we’re cheering on our favorite sports team, we rarely focus on other things going on around us, save poking fun at our friend who is cheering for the other team. We almost certainly are not considering the influence that GIS analysis has had on the game, but — despite our failure to notice — the technology has had a significant impact on sports in recent decades. Today many team logistics, ranging from when teams travel to who hears which game on the radio, are planned using geography-based systems. In some cases, GIS is even being used to map a player’s movement up and down the field during the game!
"Anaconda is an open-source Python distribution that makes is possible to easily install and manage many pre-packaged third party Python modules. It is a competing fully open-source alternative to the Enthought Python Distribution (EPD).
It has some big advantages over using the Python Esri provides with ArcGIS: - Very useful tools and modules not in Esri's standard distribution are available (iPython, pandas, etc). - The admin can install and update modules easily - A single Python install stack can be used to set up different "virtual environments" "
Geographer Richard Resl moved from Austria to Ecuador and founded AmazonGISnet, a non-profit organization that uses GIS technology in its effort to help the country's indigenous nations protect the Amazon.
