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.

Do you really need a GIS to do spatial analytics ?

Do you really need a GIS to do spatial analytics ? | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Geospatial technology - spatial data management and analytics - is being used in many industries outside of the traditional GIS sector. Analysts and IT folks in these industries may be surprised to find that the spatial analytics and data management they require is already available from their database management system whether it is Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, or SQLite

At the GIS in the Rockies conference in Denver Dave Murray from the City of Westminster reminded us how powerful the spatial analytics in modern relational database systems are.

Mexico earthquake's damage map to help in rescue and relief operations

Mexico earthquake's damage map to help in rescue and relief operations | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
NASA has created a map of areas heavily damaged by the 7.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico. The map is helping Mexican government and other private agencies in relief and rescue operations. The quake, whose epicenter was in Pueblo, caused enormous loss to life and property.

Damage Proxy Mapping

Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory(JPL) and Caltech, both located in Pasadena, California, used before-and-after interferometric synthetic aperture radar ( InSAR)satellite imagery of Mexico, identifying the areas heavily damaged and creating a Damage Proxy map. The images are from Copernicus Sentinel 1-A and Sentinel 1-B satellites that are operated by the European Space Agency.

Nightmare on GIS Street: Accuracy, Datums, and Geospatial Data : Geospatial Solutions

Nightmare on GIS Street: Accuracy, Datums, and Geospatial Data : Geospatial Solutions | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
This subject scares me. I’m not a trained geodesist. I’m not a mathematician. Yet, I’d be derelict in my duty if I didn’t write about this subject. I know enough to be dangerous, and enough to know this subject is going to be a nightmare for people managing geospatial databases.

Headache today, nightmare tomorrow

The only reason it’s not a nightmare today is because most of you don’t know it’s even a problem. Or, you know it’s a problem, but let it slide because dealing with it is not easy. It’s going to get worse in the future, much worse. It’s going to get worse because sensors (GPS, GNSS, imagery, etc.) are getting much more accurate. The cost of acquiring high-precision (centimeter-level) data, whether it’s via GNSS, scanning or ?? is falling hard and fast. As I’ve written before, high-precision GNSS receivers are getting much cheaper. Geodata 2.0 is coming, and it is making existing geospatial databases look like my kids’ coloring books.

It reminds me of an experience I had nearly 20 years ago.

Four Free GIS Lessons for Managing Flood - Story Map Series

Four Free GIS Lessons for Managing Flood - Story Map Series | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"In August 2011, Tropical Storm Irene battered the eastern coast of the United States. The town of Stowe in Vermont experienced extensive damage to roads, bridges, and culverts due to flooding caused by the storm. To prepare for future flood events, Stowe's town government wants to know the level of rainfall needed to cause the nearby Little River to flood. Because observed data about the river's flow patterns is sparse, the town intends to estimate runoff characteristics using unit hydrographs. Unit hydrographs are line graphs that determine how much water a stream outlet will discharge over time during a predicted rainstorm. They can be created by analyzing the time it takes for rainfall to travel through a watershed to the stream."

Mastering the Space Time Continuum: Considerations for Publishing Date Fields to the Web | ArcGIS Blog

Mastering the Space Time Continuum: Considerations for Publishing Date Fields to the Web | ArcGIS Blog | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Have you ever published data with date/time fields as map services or feature services? After they were published and added to a web map and app, did the date and/or time display incorrectly? Did you spend a few hours trying to remember Time Zone math from grade 3 to try to figure out what was happening? Did you wish you could hop in a time-travelling DeLorean and travel back to the Wild West before Sir Sanford Fleming invented Standard Time?  As equations of relativity show that both space and time coordinates of any physical event, GIS data with date field is a great way to show where an event occurs along the space time continuum.

As this blog and our book are focused on geospatial data, it makes sense that we discuss trends in data–such as laws, standards, attitudes, and tools that gradually helping more users to more quickly find the data that they need.  But with all of these advancements we continue to implore decision makers to think carefully about and investigate the data sources they are using.  This becomes especially critical–and at times difficult–when that data is in the “big data” category.  The difficulty arises when big data is seen as so complex that often it is cited and used in an unquestioned manner.

Maps are universally appealing — people hang them in their homes as artwork, digital tools are common for daily navigation, and new technologies are pushing data-rich cartography to evolve into freshly useful forms.

As the lines blur between the map's function as a navigation tool, a platform for data analysis, and an outlet for storytelling, new GIS visualizations crop up daily. As the arbiter of countless data sets, government is uniquely positioned to make use of this tool, find new ways to engage the public and seek creative ways to integrate spatial information to improve existing operations.

A better visual breakdown of the 2017 election results | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The usual way electoral results maps are presented can be deceiving, overemphasising the relative importance of large but sparsely populated rural areas. Stephen Beban shares his map that more accurately reflects last night’s results.

If you watched the results on election night, you may have seen the map of New Zealand’s electorates. Despite the overall party vote, showing a relatively close result (with New Zealand First holding the balance of power), one would be forgiven for thinking a National landslide had occurred based on the amount of blue covering the map of the electorates.

IF THE WORLD’S OLDEST SURVIVING globe has taught us anything, it’s that just when we think we’re starting to figure out how the world works, turns out we barely know anything at all.

Known formally as the Erdapfel (literally “Earth Apple,” or in some colloquial translations “potato”), the oldest globe is an impressive and beautiful artifact, even if its cartographic science is a little off. The Erdapfel dates back to 1492, and is far from the first globe ever created, but it is, so far, the oldest discovered terrestrial globe still in existence.

Little “Vs” of Big Data

Little “Vs” of Big Data | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Big Data has been defined by the “Three Vs” indicating the three characteristics that have prompted the most challenging types of situations faced by IT managers and data scientists: Velocity (the speed at which data is accumulating), volume (the sheer amount of new data) and variety (the numerous data types including structured and unstructured, like video). Then two more “Vs” were added making it “Five Vs” (veracity and variability); and later it became “Seven Vs” (visualization and value). My two favorite “Vs” are variability and veracity because both are significant to the analysis of location-based data.
