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.

From tightly scripted software code to the cloud, understanding our history can help guide us in building the technology of the future.
[Note: This is latest post in our series about Managing GIS.]
There is much we can learn from our past. Each technology advance has been a tradeoff between heavier processing loads and deploying software that was easier to build and maintain. Faster hardware processors and improved network bandwidth provide opportunities for more software innovation. As platform and network capabilities improve, new advances in software move technology forward at an increasingly rapid pace.
Software development history gives us insight into the basic principles that guide us in building the technology of the future. The figure below provides a high-level overview of the major GIS technology changes over the past 20 years.
Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Developer Edition) Is Here!by Julie Powell on December 18, 2014
Earlier this month Web AppBuilder was released with ArcGIS Online and the Portal for ArcGIS extension to ArcGIS for Server, allowing users to build powerful GIS apps that run on any device! Now with the release of the Developer Edition, developers can extend Web AppBuilder with custom widgets and personalize it with custom themes.
"The other problem was that the total cost of ownership wasn’t always factored in to the business decision to deploy a customized application. If you’re an IT Director reading this, you probably laughed a little when I mentioned that some organizations thought developing an app in-house meant they were getting it for free. We all know that’s clearly not the case. Maintaining and supporting an application in-house can take an inordinate and unsustainable amount of resources, and many organizations have learned the hard way that just because they can code a customized app doesn’t mean they should."

Total cost of ownership to create a sustainable GIS: a truly needed (and serious) discussion towards wheel's reinventing shrink.
Aylesbury, Dec. 3, 2014 – Sovereign Housing Association, one of the largest housing associations in the south and south west of England, has teamed up with Esri UK to support its business transformation programme.
Science maps serve as visual interfaces to immense amounts of data, depicting myriad objects in ways that allow us to effectively discern apparent outliers, clusters, and trends. ThePlaces & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit aims to introduce science mapping techniques to the general public and to experts across diverse disciplines for educational, scientific, and practical purposes. It is meant to inspire cross-disciplinary discussion on how to best track and communicate scholarly activity and scientific progress on a global scale. "
All of us in one degree or another rely on maps. Whether we use a road atlas on a family vacation, pull out our smartphones when lost in an unfamiliar neighborhood, or employ our mental maps of our homes to navigate in the dark, maps play a large role in [...]
Las presentaciones de mapas te ayudan a contar tus historias con información en mapas, presentar resultados analíticos a tu equipo de trabajo e informar a las partes interesadas sobre tus proyectos. Una presentación con mapas es una colección de diapositivas que muestran mapas base, capas, ventanas emergentes, ubicaciones específicas y títulos. Aquí te mostramos cómo crear una presentación de un mapa:
"An interview with Kevin Butler about the integration of ArcGIS and SciPy
Geography is the science of our world, and GIS is a foundational technology for helping us to better understand that science. To further strengthen the link between GIS and science, today at the Esri Ocean GIS Forum we’re pleased to announce the integration of ArcGIS with SciPy, a Python-based ecosystem of open-source software for mathematics, science, and engineering.
I recently caught up with Kevin Butler, a Product Engineer with the Geoprocessing and Analysis Team, to ask him a few questions about the integration between ArcGIS and SciPy."
"The GEO Work Plan provides the agreed framework for implementing the GEOSS 10-Year Implementation Plan (2005-2015). It is a living document that is updated annually.
THE 2012-2015 WORK PLAN
The 2012-2015 Work Plan reflects the conclusions of the GEO Plenary (VII and VIII), Beijing Ministerial Declaration, and Mid-Term, Second, and Third Evaluations of GEOSS. It is structured to build a user-driven GEOSS and therefore engage users, especially those in developing countries.
The 2012-2015 Work Plan has been designed to meet the 2015 GEOSS Strategic Targets (see “Related GEOSS Strategic Targets” section under each Task). As a result, the Tasks of the Work Plan correspond to outcomes identified as being necessary to meet the Strategic Targets."
