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.

Welcome to History Link 101's African Map Page. Here you will find excellent links to maps of Eastern, Western, and Southern African Empires as well as other good maps of Africa. History Link 101 is a site developed for World History Classes, by a World History Teacher.
As we have pointed out in this blog, we have had the capability to create story maps (multimedia-rich, live web maps) for a few years now, and we have also had the capability to collect data via crowdsourcing and citizen science methods using a variety of methods. But now the capability exists for both to be…
Palestine. Crimea. Kashmir. The Islamic State. Some of the biggest geopolitical events in the world are centered around disputed territories, land whose sovereignty is claimed by more than one nation / occupying power. At the other extreme, some territorial disputes involve land that would seem entirely worthless. The U.K., Iceland, and Denmark all assert ownership of Rockall Island, an […]
An app, called Poetic Places, has been created by Sarah Cole and uses data gathered from the British Library to create a system to identify locations in poems, paintings, and other works of literature.
As announced in Salzburg a few days ago, I’m happy to present the lastest enhancement to my IDF router for QGIS: travel time routing and catchment computation.
Travel times for pedestrians and cyclists are computed using constant average speeds, while car travel times depend on the speed values provided by the road network data.
Catchment computations return the links that can be traversed completely within the given time (or distance limit). The current implementation does not deal with links at the edge of the catchment area, which can only be traversed partially.

Ultimately the message at the 2016 Esri UC was one of needing to be far more proactive in taking action to protect, preserve and sustain our planet, and of how interconnected everything is. ArcGIS provides the platform for people to understand these interconnections and to take better informed decisions to enable a smarter world.
Spanish technology company BQ announces that their new Aquaris X5 Plus smartphone will be the first European Galileo-ready smartphone to hit the market.
In anticipation of the planned launch of Galileo Initial Services later this year, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) welcomes the first European Galileo-ready smartphone. The Aquaris X5 Plus smartphone, produced by the Spanish technology company BQ, is based on the Galileo-supported Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, with Galileo capability accessible via a software update to be released in Q4 2016.
By taking the guesswork out of all of the settings and choices that you could conceivably tweak, your initial map results are cartographically appropriate and look wonderful. You can always change things at will, which you’ll undoubtedly do as you gain more experience, but smart mapping gets you to something effective very quickly. You spend less time iterating and wrangling your maps into fulfilling your intention.
The point is not to take control away from map authors or dumb down the map-authoring experience, but to be smarter about how all of the initial parameters of the map (color, scale, styling, etc.) are established. For example, each of the Esri basemaps (Streets, Dark Gray Canvas, Topographic, etc.) were paired with several multi-hue color schemes that can be used as the defaults for your operational layers. This way you know your map will look good right out of the box without needing any adjustments.
Mapping professionals still have full control and the ability to extend the default capabilities to create unique customizations and truly exquisite, publication-quality cartography.
