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.

New Tools Are Available to Teach Geography in More Engaging, Dynamic, and Effective Ways - Esri Insider | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

 

Geography is considered one of the world’s oldest disciplines. It was first defined and formally established by Eratosthenes in 250 BC and has a rich tradition of scholarship extending from 2,000 years ago to the present. As a scientific discipline, geography has always embraced new technologies, research practices, instructional methods, skills, and content.

The European River Map - Maps Mania

The European River Map - Maps Mania | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"Earlier this month Andrew Hill created a beautiful looking map of U.S. Rivers Colored by the Direction they Flow. Europeans now have their own river flow map.


Rivers of Europe is a CartoDB map showing only European rivers. The map uses the same color scheme as Andrews' US rivers map so I assume that the European map also colors each river by its direction of flow. If you click on the 'Datasets used in this map' you see the data used in the map. The data includes a column for 'bearing' so it is likely that that the rivers are colored by their direction of flow."

Be part of Openness in Geoeducation"On behalf of Geo for All we are pleased to invite you to join our efforts in creating Openness in GeoEducation.

You are invited to register and participate in free course on "Introduction to Geospatial Technology Using QGIS". Over 1000 students have already registered for the next course starting Feb 23- Mar 29, 2015 being run by GeoAcademy.

For Educators, please note that the curriculum (lecture materials, tutorials etc) is also free for you to share and share alike under the Creative Commons BY 3.0 license. Please find all the materials atGitHub repository.

 

For universities and educators it is an excellent opportunity to build your own Geospatial courses using Free and Open Source Geospatial Software. OSGeo software and technologies are the major contributor for the global geospatial economy and used by hundreds of thousands of users in academia, governments and business worldwide and rapidly increasing.

 

GeoAcademy and OSGeo Live are going to be the two key instruments that Geo for All will be using to accelerate Openness in Geoeducation worldwide and the International Map Year 2015 (lead by the International Cartographic Association and supported by the United Nations) is the opportunity we will be using to implement this action.

GeoAcademy will not only expand geospatial education opportunities to thousands of students but more importantly by making all the lectures, tutorials available in GitHub under Creative Commons licence enables other educators globally to build up their own teaching resources to suit their requirements.

 

Creating openness in Geo Education is important for developing creative and open minds in students which is critical for building open innovation and contributes to building up Open Knowledge for the benefit of the whole society and for our future generations.

We look forward to your participation for Openness in Geoeducation worldwide and successful International Map Year activities."

OGC Requests Comment on LandInfra Conceptual Model

OGC Requests Comment on LandInfra Conceptual Model | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC(R)) membership has issued a Request for Comments on the OGC LandInfra Conceptual Model.

This document, the first public draft of the OGC’s proposed UML conceptual model for land parcels and the built environment, communicates the proposed intent and content of a new candidate OGC standard to be called the OGC InfraGML Encoding Standard. The UML conceptual model establishes a single set of consistent concepts that could be implemented in GML (as InfraGML) or in other encoding mechanisms.

After reviewing the existing LandXML format, the OGC Land and Infrastructure Domain Working Group (LandInfraDWG) decided that a fresh start standard was warranted. The new standard would have a use case driven subset of LandXML functionality, but it would be consistent with the OGC standards baseline, implemented with the OGC Geography Markup Language (GML), and supported by a Unified Model Language (UML) conceptual model.

Small Town, Big Dreams | ArcWatch | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
When residents of South Windsor, Connecticut, want to report a damaged stop sign, a dead animal on the road, or a missed trash pickup, they can use the town's new iOS mobile app developed by Esri to alert the town's staff to the problem.

And if public works employees spot and fix a pothole, they can use the same app on their town-issued iPhone or iPad to report to their supervisors that the work was completed. The Town of South Windsor Maps Viewer mobile app—also available online via the Citizen Service Request dashboard—is just one of the Esri ArcGIS powered apps South Windsor uses since obtaining an Esri Small Municipal and County Government Enterprise License Agreement (ELA).

The ELA includes unlimited access to many components in the ArcGIS platform, including ArcGIS for Desktop, ArcGIS for Server, and developer tools to build desktop and mobile apps, along with a subscription to ArcGIS Online.

"The real win for us, a community of 26,000, is everything we can dream, we have the tools to build," said Scott E. Roberts, the town's chief information officer and director of information technology.

Study Launched to Quantify the Economic Benefits of GPS | Inside GNSS

Study Launched to Quantify the Economic Benefits of GPS | Inside GNSS | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
A new study is underway to estimate the economic benefit of GPS and quantify what’s at stake if anything interferes with its navigation signals.

Launched at the request of the National Executive Committee (ExCom) for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT), the first segment of the two-part study would look at major uses of GPS. It will estimate the benefits derived from the system and describe the costs that would be incurred if GPS became unavailable, compiling the results in an interim report.

The second part of the analysis would build on that, expanding the research to include non-economic benefits, international benefits, future benefits, and an estimate of the economic costs of a long-term denial of GPS.
