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.

Speak the Same Language

Speak the Same Language | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Now, more than before, obtaining funding for starting or expanding a GIS program requires that the GIS manager present a strong business case to stakeholders. For those who are more familiar with the language of technology and GIS, speaking the language of business can be intimidating. Keith Wishart helps GIS managers bridge the gap between the technical and financial sectors within organizations. Wishart, a business strategist at Esri (UK) Ltd., is a well-known speaker and author in the GIS industry, notable for his work quantifying the financial benefits of GIS. Andy Coote and Wishart authored "Show Me the Money—Making the CEO Listen," winner of the 2007 Association for Geographic Information (AGI) Best Paper Award. Wishart has also published articles in the Guardian newspaper. In this interview with Esri, Wishart addresses the subject of making the business case for GIS.

The Data Revolution Hits Kansas

The Data Revolution Hits Kansas | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Open data: It’s not just for Silicon Valley nerds and East Coast policy wonks anymore.

Deep in the heartland there’s a data revolution taking place. In a range of initiatives, municipalities across Kansas are mobilizing information to inform the citizenry and drive government performance.

The official state motto of Kansas: Ad Astra Per Aspera. To the stars, through difficulty. It’s a pioneering sentiment that seems to be driving data innovation. In the state capital, Topeka officials just launched a new performance tool that puts government metrics online. Johnson County recently kicked off a data-driven justice initiative. Olathe and Wichita have open data efforts underway.

Road traffic fatalities - we are not immune

Road traffic fatalities - we are not immune | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
According to the World Health Organization, there are 1.25 million road traffic fatalities around the world every year[i]. To put that into perspective, imagine if seven Boeing 747s crashed every single day – would you ever get on board one of them? Yet, it’s interesting that most of us don’t think twice about getting into our vehicles.

Some of us believe that those numbers don’t reflect on North America and that most of the world’s traffic fatalities come from developing nations. While this is true, North America certainly is not immune.

Last week, the City of Toronto reported 77 traffic fatalities in 2016, including 43 pedestrians – up from 38 in 2015. The City has gotten in front of this issue and is addressing it head on with its Vision Zero Road Safety Plan, which includes an extensive list of road safety measures.

European GNSS system Galileo is finally live and it's a great news for everyone - Geoawesomeness

European GNSS system Galileo is finally live and it's a great news for everyone - Geoawesomeness | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Today, on Thursday, December 15th, 2016 after 17 years of development, delays and budget increases, the European Global Navigation Satellite System – Galileo is finally live. With 18 satellites on the orbit the system is not yet fully independent as it lacks of the coverage but it will be initially complemented by the American GPS.

Initiated in 1999 the project was supposed to be operational in 2008 with a budget of $3.2bn (€3bn). Today we know that it will cost over 3 times more and the system will be fully operational only by 2020, when all 24 satellites will be available on the orbit.

The initial motivations to build the system were rather political. GPS is operated and owned by the US, which makes other countries fully dependent on a good will of its politicians. This creates a significant risk for foreign governments, that’s why Russia, China and now Europe decided to become independent.

Find Open GIS Data from Around the World Thanks to the Center for Open Data Enterprise ~ GIS Lounge | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"The Center for Open Data Enterprise (CODE) (http://www.opendataenterprise.org/) has a mission to maximize the value of open government data as a public resource.  As the developer of a public database of open data sources, the CODE connects users with government agencies and organizations based around the world that use open data.

The center believes that open data can support economic growth and social good around the world, and that this valuable resource needs to be managed and developed to reach its maximum potential. They aim to achieve this by working with data users alongside government, private, and non-profit organizations, enabling input and feedback to be used to develop smarter open data strategies.

A part of their work includes the Open Data Impact Map (http://opendataimpactmap.org/), a public database and global map of organizations that use open government data around the world. This map has been developed to provide an understanding of the demand for open data, and enable provider organizations to understand the geographic distribution of that demand. By mapping usage in this way, the most valuable government datasets can be identified and improved."
