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.

“Most Livable” Montana City Implements the Esri Parcel Fabric « Earth Imaging Journal: Remote Sensing, Satellite Images, Satellite Imagery

“Most Livable” Montana City Implements the Esri Parcel Fabric « Earth Imaging Journal: Remote Sensing, Satellite Images, Satellite Imagery | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Since William Clark visited the area in 1806, Bozeman, Montana has been attracting visitors with its beautiful landscape and fertile land. Today, the City of Bozeman is the 4th largest city in the state, attracting a steady stream of new residents with its abundance of whitewater kayaking, hiking, fly fishing and mountain climbing. Montana State University’s campus can be found in the City, boasting 15,700 enrolled students in 51 fields of study. Dubbed “the most livable place,” Bozeman is home to nearly 40,000 citizens spread across 19 square miles.
Geographic Technologies Group (GTG) recently worked with Bozeman to improve their land records GIS platform. The City has a progressive and experienced GIS team. They have built numerous datasets and provide services to the entire City. The initial focus of the GIS project was the compilation of data layers to include tax parcels. The City of Bozeman had approximately 25,000 parcels. Traditional editing tools have been utilized to maintain the parcel layer over the past decade; however, the City has been looking for ways to more systematically manage the parcel layer. After a competitive RFP, the City selected GTG to migrate their existing parcel data to the Esri Parcel fabric and provide on-site training. The Esri Parcel Fabric stores parcel data in a continuous surface of connected parcels ensuring that the relationships between polygons, lines and points are maintained. Using this seamless dataset, Bozeman will be able to effectively store and manage all of its land records data including parcels and easements. Jon Henderson, GIS Manager for the City of Bozeman points out, “We are always looking for ways to advance GIS for the City. The tools continue to evolve. We want to take every advantage of the new innovations in GIS to include parcel management.”

PostgreSQL and PostGIS: A brief introduction - Digital Geography | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
You probably seen this already (maybe on your very own PC as well): A folder with shape files. Well we’re living in the 21st century and I do have and use those folders still. After a talk of Sebastian Meier at Maptime Berlin I was convinced and started to work with a databases instead of folders. So let me show you how to install PostgreSQL along with PostGIS on Ubuntu and Windows, how to get data into it, import OSM data and how to connect it with QGIS/ArcGIS.

Using neural networks to extract semantic knowledge from data

Using neural networks to extract semantic knowledge from data | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Large image reference data sets already exist, which can be used as reference data by the neural network algorithms. Using the neural networks and associated reference data sets enables Lyst to extract additional semantic knowledge, which can be used to drive their commercial propositions.

This concludes part one of this blog post, which provides an overview of the means by which semantic meaning can be extracted from text and images. Part two will go into more technical detail about how the text analytic and neural network techniques work. It will also cover how this extracted semantic knowledge can be used within digital products.

New Atlas Shows Extent of Light Pollution – What Does it Mean for our Health?

New Atlas Shows Extent of Light Pollution – What Does it Mean for our Health? | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The new comprehensive World Atlas of Artificial Night Sky Brightness has just appeared in Science Advances. Written by a group of distinguished scientists lead by Italian Fabio Falchi, it is a noteworthy accomplishment. The first atlas appeared in 2001, but was based on a less precise satellite measurement system. This latest atlas provides far more clarity.

The atlas measures what is called artificial sky glow – reflected light scatter in the atmosphere from the electric lighting below – across the world. Sky glow results from light pollution, or the excess of electric light during the night. But “light pollution” is not like “water pollution” which is pollution of water. It’s actually “night pollution by electric light.”

Reproducible spatial analyses with ArcPy and R using Jupyter Notebook

Reproducible spatial analyses with ArcPy and R using Jupyter Notebook | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Reproducibility, the ability of an entire study to be replicated, is one of the core concepts in data science. Although preparing data analyses so they are reproducible is not a trivial task, it can bring many benefits and make a researcher’s life much easier: it can help to save time by allowing reuse of code and results from past studies or by allowing application of previously defined methodologies on new data.

Among the different tools that have been developed for helping (data) scientists to implement reproducible analyses, web-based notebooks are gaining increased popularity. These are interactive computational environments where code snippets, explanatory text, graphics and media can be integrated. In this post I am going to focus on Jupyter Notebooks and particularly on how to use them to create reproducible reports that combine ArcPy- and R-based geospatial analyses. Below I explain how to install and configure Jupyter Notebook to work with ArcPy and R and then I provide a practical example.
