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.

In 1960, 34 percent of the global population lived in cities. Today, urban residents make up 54 percent of the total global population. The United Nations expects that percentage toincrease to 66 percent by 2050.
"Geo-enabled crowdsourcing and volunteered geographic information as a means of amassing data are becoming commonplace, spawning and enabling citizen-science projects and making huge contributions to our collective knowledge. Can we assume that such scientific contribution is now part of our civic responsibility? And if it is to become a regular aspect of civic engagement, how can it be taught and modeled for students and for their teachers? The Spatial Citizenship (http://www.spatialcitizenship.org/) project in Europe is leading the way, developing a curriculum designed to create a populace of responsible “spatial citizens.”
In response to a Tribune request for records, the city provided 168 speed surveys conducted from July 2013 through August of last year. In each of the tests, more than 100 cars were clocked using radar guns. The tests avoided rush hours. The vast majority of the streets had 30 mph limits, but a few had 20 mph, 25 mph or 35 mph limits. Sixty-five stretches of roadway were immediately adjacent or within one or two blocks of an intersection with red light cameras.
Context and challenge MYGEOSS is launching an open call for development of innovative applications (mobile or web-based) using openly available or crowd-generated data in different domains addressing citizens’ needs. The pool of open data for use includes but is not limited to the Data Collection of Open Resources for Everyone ( GEOSS Data-CORE ) made available by the Group on Earth observation (GEO) through the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), as well as open data from EU-funded projects.
The Focus The focus of this call will be on developing applications of European relevance that will provide users with quantitative or qualitative information on the changing environment, e.g. change detection in climate, biodiversity, water bodies, coastal areas, built environment, green areas, forestry, agricultural land and crops, and atmospheric composition. Other areas of application will be considered providing they address broad environmental or social themes across geographic scales."
To realize the full potential of location-based smartphone apps, they should be built to support offline mode and original map graphics. Creating a custom offline map is the best choice. We were faced with this challenge as well, and the solution we came up with was creating a separate library for this purpose, the mAppWidget code library.
Wireless connectivity issues can be costly in terms of time, expense and customer satisfaction. Slow response times, and dropped connections can be impossibly frustrating. A primary challenge for field staff are weak cell signals. That can be due to distance from the cell sites, working indoors or blocked cellular signals [...]

The Ordnance Survey is UK’s mapping agency and frequently releases free datasets. Their OpenData policy is quite progressive compared to Germany’s and they’ve recently published some fresh datasets that anyone can use. All you need to do is to register and to acknowledge them. The new datasets are: OS Open Map – Local; OS Open Names; OS Open Rivers; and OS Open Roads. They include data on urban and rural features, an index for all the location names in the UK, a generalised open water network, U
Spatial Citizenship is about ‘learning how to navigate this world in respect to a) the physical world, b) the meanings attached to physical objects and environment c) the power relations involved in the production of meaning’.
Spatial Citizenship is centered around the need of establishing an active, constructive and participative European identity.
The Spatial Citizenship approach stems from the fact that the use of technologies and geoinformation is argued from the perspective of our everyday lives and the differences of individual/collective appropriation of space that are the basis for participation in collective decision-making. It is therefore relevant for democratic processes from local, urban and regional planning to nature conservation to organization and preparation for individual spare time and even voluntary activities. Participatory and community-based approaches and the posting of information and data collected in the field are already commonly in use. Developing this sort of engagement in secondary education allows teachers and students to become aware of the power of spatial thinking, geoinformation and the use of the (geo)-web as a communicative and participatory tool for citizens to engage with."
Weather Decision Technologies has access to some fascinating weather data. One of those datasets that I enjoy playing around with is lightning. We ingest around 2,000 lightning strikes per minute. While the processing of that data is interesting, I wanted to attempt to visualize the sheer volume of lightning strikes. I pulled down an archive of lightning strikes from May 2013 and created a map of 80,305,421 lightning strikes"
"Ordnance Survey (OS) has added four new products in its open data portfolio. These are OS Open Map – Local, OS Open Names, OS Open Rivers and OS Open Roads. With the addition, Ordnance Survey’s OpenData product catalogue now includes sixteen products. These products are fully customisable and can work together or be imported and integrated with the users own software and database.
OS Open Map -Local provides a customisable backdrop for users to map, visualise and fully understand their data. This new product provides the most detailed level of buildings in OS’s open data suite and is designed to be used with other open data products.

OS Open Rivers is a generalised open water network showing the flow and the locations of rivers, streams, lakes and canals across the whole of Great Britain.
OS Open Roads is a connected road network for Great Britain. It contains all classified roads (such as motorways and A & B roads) as well as officially named unclassified roads."
3D Geoinformation is necessary today for many urban planning, industrial, engineering, environmental and analysis applications. Recent attention focused on 3D cities and infrastructure design that includes building information modeling (BIM) are particularly dependent on understanding 3D. Applications such as geophysical modeling in energy, civil engineering in transportation, city modeling and underground applications all create and use 3D data. Visualizations are output from high quality three-dimensional measurements over time are particularly useful for communication. The book 3D Geoinformation - The Selected Papersof the 3D GeInfo 2014 conference contains a broad summary of present day understanding of 3D based on geoinformation.
Today, 90 percent of the world’s trade travels by sea, according to the United Nations’ International Maritime Organization. Persistent maritime domain awareness (MDA) requires the combined efforts of water-, air-, and space-based systems to monitor any area of the global maritime domain in order to expeditiously assess potential adversaries.
