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.

These maps depict the world’s news in real time

These maps depict the world’s news in real time | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Around the world, an unimaginably large amount of news is produced every single day. While this news is designed to be read by average readers to inform and entertain, to some political scientists it represents something perhaps even more tantalizing: data.

 

The Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone (GDELT)http://gdeltproject.org/about.html is one attempt to put that data to use. GDELT monitors international media in more 65 languages. It uses automation to track events in real time, find the pertinent information from them and add them to a database of billions of events that now stretches back 30 years.

 

It's a remarkably ambitious project: GDELT researcher Kalev Leetaru estimates that the database takes in from 600,000 to 1 million articles every day and that it monitors far more (it ignores entertainment and sports stories, for example).

Cool Technology + Creativity + Commitment to Youth

By Carla Wheeler, Esri Writer

 

"Inspirational messages and incredible technology were hallmarks of the 2015 Esri Developer Summit, which drew 1,800 enthusiastic geodevelopers to Palm Springs, California, for a week in March.

 

Esri president Jack Dangermond praised the developers for doing the "real work" of building geospatial apps to solve problems. And he encouraged them to do their part to grow the tech community, urging them to commit to mentoring youth interested in geospatial technology. "We need to invest more in the people that solve the problems," said Dangermond."

The GDELT Project

 

 

Learn about how GDELT came to be, who made it, and how you can use it.


GDELT is the largest, most comprehensive, and highest resolution open database of human society ever created. Creating a platform that monitors the world's news media from nearly every corner of every country in print, broadcast, and web formats, in over 100 languages, every moment of every day and that stretches back to January 1, 1979 through present day, with daily updates, required an unprecedented array of technical and methodological innovations, partnerships, and whole new mindsets to bring this all together and make it a reality. Creating a database of a quarter billion georeferenced records covering the entire world over 30 years, coupled with the massive networks that connect all of the people, organizations, locations, themes, and emotions underlying those events, required not only solving unparalleled challenges to create the database, but also a "reimagining" of how we interact and think about societal-scale data.

Campbell Ingraham's curator insight, May 25, 3:14 PM

This video relates to Use of geospatial technologies, such as GIS, remote sensing, global positioning systems (GPS), and online maps. It tells about how the world is a 3D shape, but we view it as 2D, which leads to distortions in world size. The use of GIS allows for the world to be projected onto any shape such as a cone, rectangle, prism, or pyramid. And this leads to the different map projections.
