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.

Obstacles To Machine Learning Adoption | 7wData

Machine Learning is being touted as a solution to some of the world’s most pressing problems. In agriculture it is already helping poorer regions with food production, in healthcare it is being used to contain the spread of contagious diseases and discover new cures. And tech giants are investing tremendous amounts to ensure that its potential is realized. Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Baidu have spent in excess of $8.5 billion beefing up their AI talent, according to Forbes, while Amazon spends $228 million a year just to find people to run Alexa. To say that the technology is well on its way would appear, at least on the surface, to be an understatement.

However, not everyone is convinced, and investment is yet to really translate into widespread adoption. Indeed, in one recent study from Belatrix Software, ‘Powering the Adoption of Machine Learning’, just 18% of companies asked if they had already started a machine learning initiative in their organizations said they had done so, 40% said that they were investigating it but hadn’t started, and 43% that they had no plans to start one at all.

ArcWatch | Put The Science of Where into Practice with The ArcGIS Book, Second Edition | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
A new book from Esri gives you the know-how and the hands-on experience to practice The Science of Where.

The ArcGIS Book: 10 Big Ideas about Applying The Science of Where, Second Edition, and its companion website offer all the information and interactive educational resources you need to dive in and start using web GIS to create maps, work with apps, create and use authoritative data, do spatial analysis and much more. With web GIS, you apply the where factor to get deeper insight from your data.

"What is The Science of Where? Easily stated, it's the science of geography and the tech of GIS brought together—computational geography," Esri president Jack Dangermond said earlier this year in introducing the concept. "The Science of Where transforms the world by unlocking the full potential of data within organizations everywhere."

ArcWatch | Five Tips for Fixing Broken Data Links in an ArcGIS Pro Project

ArcWatch | Five Tips for Fixing Broken Data Links in an ArcGIS Pro Project | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
When you add a map, scene, or layer to your project in the ArcGIS Pro application, you will sometimes hit speed bumps, indicated by small red exclamation points (!) that appear next to your layers.

This means you've got some fixes to make before you can actually get to do your work. Although the red exclamation points can initially be disheartening to see, it's easy to fix broken data links in ArcGIS Pro.

When you open a map or scene, ArcGIS Pro looks for the data referenced by each of the layers in the open map. When a data source cannot be found for a particular layer, that layer doesn't draw. It only takes one glance at the Contents pane to see those red exclamation points that indicate a broken source.

Engaging with the Canopy—Multi-Dimensional Vegetation Mark Visualisation Using Archived Aerial Images

Engaging with the Canopy—Multi-Dimensional Vegetation Mark Visualisation Using Archived Aerial Images | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Using Montarice in central Adriatic Italy as a case study, this paper focuses on the extraction of the spectral (i.e., plant colour) and geometrical (i.e., plant height) components of a crop canopy from archived aerial photographs, treating both parameters as proxies for archaeological prospection. After the creation of orthophotographs and a canopy height model using image-based modelling, new archaeological information is extracted from this vegetation model by applying relief-enhancing visualisation techniques. Through interpretation of the resulting data, a combination of the co-registered spectral and geometrical vegetation dimensions clearly add new depth to interpretative mapping, which is typically based solely on colour differences in orthophotographs

Blockchain can make major difference in geospatial systems

Blockchain can make major difference in geospatial systems | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Of late there has been a lot of interest in Blockchain technology and many researchers are looking at ways in which Blockchain can be used in geospatial systems. This is expected because geospatial systems have made very good use of computing technology right from databases to networks and the Cloud. Geospatial technology is increasingly becoming embedded in other systems like BIM, BI, BPE and so forth. Therefore, it is only some time before it embraces Blockchain technology.

In this blog, the discussion is on Public BlockChains. There is something called Private BlockChain which has many other features, but as it is at the development level we will leave it out of the current discussion. The Chain in BlockChain is the chain of transactions in the form of ledger entries about assets which could be money, imagery, data, maps, documents, etc. In reality what is actually transacted are tokens containing the metadata of the assets. The actual physical transfer happens separately. Block refers to the grouping of transactions related to each other. A way of looking at a BlockChain is to consider it as a ledger where all transactions are entered.

ArcGIS Maps for Power BI: How to enable, importing data, features

ArcGIS Maps for Power BI: How to enable, importing data, features | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Businesses today have so much data on their hands that they really can’t make sense of it all without leveraging the power of where. Location has become the go-to tool for filling data gaps. Maps are being recognized as a common information language because they provide a context that tables and pie charts simply cannot. So, it was only natural for GIS powerhouse Esri and technology giant Microsoft to forge alliances to bring ArcGIS Maps to Power BI.

Just think about the possibilities! You can geocode your data accurately and make area-based selections. You can add thematic layers to your maps. You can understand the demographics of your interest areas easily. Excited much?

A 3D Model Can Make You Clairvoyant! April Model of the Month: Futuristic Topographic City Map - Mcor Technologies | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
I am sure you would all agree that it would often be handy to have a crystal ball to see into the future! Well with 3D printing it is possible to become somewhat clairvoyant and our model of the month for April does just that – gives a physical glimpse of the future!

April model of the month is a futuristic topographic city map. Our customer in Turkey, SBK3D Ltd, who provide a bureau service printed two maps – the first map shows the current state of the terrain in a prominent municipality in Turkey. The second map reflects the same land but this time demonstrating the city growth including in new 3D buildings etc. These models were part of a presentation made to a municipality in Turkey. This model gained a lot of interest due to its visual quality, fine details and durability. Visually and scientifically they met all the demands of both their customer and target group.

Does Danger Lie Up the Road? | A New Web App from the Indiana State Police Analyzes and Maps Traffic Crash Risk by Carla Wheeler

Accidents happen, with more than six million crashes occurring annually on roads in the United States. But what if a web app could show you, on a map, where and when the current traffic crash risk is high in your community? Would you change the route you take or be a little more cautious?

That web app is a reality for Indiana residents, who can visit the Daily Crash Prediction Map to find out the accident risk on roads throughout the state for the current day. The Indiana State Police (ISP) launched the interactive map last November as part of a statewide effort to reduce the number of traffic collisions—including fatalities—on Indiana highways.

Within the land sector, we all know the stories about ambitious land administration projects that have generally failed … they were too costly, too time consuming and too demanding in terms of capacity. It was not possible to keep up the political momentum, and the push for change to existing legal and institutional arrangements eventually faded. Barriers also relate to vested interests from land professionals.

2 ex-Tesla engineers are using an old trick from Elon Musk to build their new startup | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Andrew Kouri was working at Tesla when he noticed a big problem standing in the way of self-driving cars.

When it comes to autonomous driving capabilities, Tesla's cars are among the most sophisticated on the road. The electric-car maker's Autopilot system allows the vehicles to drive in heavy traffic and follow winding paths on highways.

But if the company wants its Model S and Model X cars to become truly autonomous and capable of handling any driving scenario, the vehicle's cameras and sensors alone won't be enough.

Instead, they will need something else — like high-definition maps.
