About the Geospatial Platform

Federal agencies and their partners collect and manage large amounts of geospatial data - but these data are often not easily found when needed or accessible in useful forms. The Geospatial Platform provides ready access to federally maintained geospatial data, services and applications.The content of all datasets and services demarcated with the Data.gov globe  have been verified by the Agency to be consistent with Federal privacy, national security, and information quality policies. As an additional service to our users, we also provide access to data from our partners across State, Tribal, Regional and local governments as well as non-governmental organizations."

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.

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 […]

Traveltime routing & catchment extension for the QGIS IDF router

Traveltime routing & catchment extension for the QGIS IDF router | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
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.

Smart Mapping Workflows | Esri Insider

Smart Mapping Workflows | Esri Insider | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
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.
