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.

How do businesses make important decisions?  Each company is unique but decisions usually fall into two categories, consensus decisions or unilateral decisions made by the boss.  Consensus decisions typically involve a team of senior managers discussing the issue, perhaps arguing for or against it and after some time a consensus is reached and everyone agrees to the answer.  Unilateral decisions simply require the boss to stew on the issue for some time and then announce the decision.  The boss

Analytics of Change – the Future of Where (30th August 2015, Matti Seikkula, e-Spatial's CIO | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"I’ve been researching the different eras of computing, the generations of people and the IT companies producing and selling IT products to find trends and reasons for the disruptive major changes seemly happening right now within the spatial (IT) industry. It looks like there are some findings that are worth sharing with people – and some findings do seem to give us some guidance on why things are changing so much more now than previously.

The diagram below is the end result of this exercise, and first part of articles that I am planning to publish around this. This diagram is a busy one, so I’ll explain it in more detail below the diagram."

A Location Platform Brings Simplicity and Executionby Bill Meehan on August 24, 2015 

A brilliant electrical engineer approached me with a request. He asked if we could model a complex control system in electric substations with GIS. To better understand what he wanted to do, I asked what problem he was trying to solve. He described several.  First, the control system took incorrect action when faced with a failure in the power system. What happened was the control system tripped out a larger section of the grid than was necessary. The engineer thought that modeling the control system in GIS could help diagnose and ultimately correct this problem. I told him this was possible, but it would be complicated.

He was overlooking major, obvious problems that carried big impact."

High-Resolution Satellites Help Monitor and Respond to Fires in Southeast Asia | World Resources Institute

High-Resolution Satellites Help Monitor and Respond to Fires in Southeast Asia | World Resources Institute | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Josh Winer is Sales Manager at DigitalGlobe.

This blog post was originally published for Global Forest Watch on July 22, 2014 .

One of the most devastating threats to the environment, economy, and human health in Indonesia comes in the form of fire. Forest and bush fires, often associated with agricultural expansion and land conflict, can release a toxic haze that shuts down schools and airports, and sickens tens of thousands of people. Efforts to stop the fires have been hampered by a lack of high-quality evidence on where exactly the fires are and who could be responsible.

Today, in Jakarta, the World Resources Institute, DigitalGlobe, the Indonesian government, Google, Esri, and a host of other partners launched Global Forest Watch Fires, an online platform for monitoring and responding to forest and land fires in Southeast Asia. It features near real-time satellite images from DigitalGlobe, fire alerts from NASA, a text messaging alert system, mapping of burn scars from Google Earth Engine, wind direction and air quality data, land-use and concession maps, and much more.
