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.

Greenwich Meridian (Prime Meridian) - GIS Geography

Greenwich Meridian (Prime Meridian) - GIS Geography | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Longitude lines like the Greenwich Meridian run north-south.

They converge at the poles. And X-coordinates are between -180 and +180, which are called longitudes.

But there’s a special longitudinal line that is the zero from which we measure east and west.

This is called the Greenwich Meridian (or prime meridian)

An Ocean of Story Maps | ArcGIS Blog

An Ocean of Story Maps | ArcGIS Blog | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
In a prior blog post, I mentioned that for the 2015 Esri Press research monograph Ocean Solutions, Earth Solutions, we encouraged the chapter authors to prepare a story map as another way to communicate their work. The story map is a new Esri medium for sharing not only data, photos, videos, sounds, and maps, but for telling a specific and compelling story by way of that content. This is all done with sophisticated cartographic functionality that does not require advanced training in cartography or GIS. Therefore the beauty of Esri story maps is that, depending on the chosen complexity, they can be built in anywhere from a few minutes to a few days, using the free public accounts and data available within ArcGIS Online. Story maps are essentially applications built from web maps which in turn are built from web-accessible data (including OGC WMS, WFS). With the beauty and utility of underlays such as the Esri Ocean Basemap, as well as a small tsunami of ocean content percolating up through free public accounts on ArcGIS Online, and on premium subscription accounts, it’s no wonder that we are seeing an “ocean” of interesting story maps.

The Aesthetics of Asset Management

The Aesthetics of Asset Management | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
For every citizen, the opportunity to live in a community that spends shared resources wisely is the right target. Having short sited spending plans, reactive maintenance as standard practice, and a decision-making body that is out of touch without facts is not sustainable. Public infrastructure belongs to the future and should be guarded with frugality. Putting in place an asset management system that facilitates smart decisions is beautiful.

Best 10 Open Source Web Mapping Tools that trend for 2017

Best 10 Open Source Web Mapping Tools that trend for 2017 | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
In last years, the arrival of Web Mapping can be considered as a major new trend in cartography. Web Mapping has become usual within organizations and its usage continues to grow. Normally organizations use Web Mapping tools in order to improve access to geographic information across the enterprise or for particular project work.
If you’re looking to get started with web mapping, there are many open source tools which are better fit to specific needs, whether those needs are displaying something very basic with minimal overhead, or a complex application with many diverse components and integrations.
The goal of this list is to provide basic information about the best open source web mapping tools every GIS specialist or cartographer should consider in 2017.

Watson should have run for US president: How smart algorithms are better than dumb politicians

Watson should have run for US president: How smart algorithms are better than dumb politicians | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The best candidate for the office of president of the United States wasn’t on the ballot last November. It was Watson, IBM’s cognitive computing engine. Watson would be a president of intelligence and integrity, temperament and dedication, working round the clock to devise solutions to our toughest domestic and international challenges. In stark contrast to any human leader, Watson is a not a political animal or stylish personality, rather he is a policy machine made of pure substance. For a brief flicker in early 2016, a private foundation not affiliated with IBM actually launched an online campaign advocating “Watson for President”—too bad it wasn’t taken seriously. America’s political system needs much less Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and much more Watson.

Review of Automatic Feature Extraction from High-Resolution Optical Sensor Data for UAV-Based Cadastral Mapping

Review of Automatic Feature Extraction from High-Resolution Optical Sensor Data for UAV-Based Cadastral Mapping | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have emerged as a rapid, low-cost and flexible acquisition system that appears feasible for application in cadastral mapping: high-resolution imagery, acquired using UAVs, enables a new approach for defining property boundaries. However, UAV-derived data are arguably not exploited to its full potential: based on UAV data, cadastral boundaries are visually detected and manually digitized. A workflow that automatically extracts boundary features from UAV data could increase the pace of current mapping procedures. This review introduces a workflow considered applicable for automated boundary delineation from UAV data. This is done by reviewing approaches for feature extraction from various application fields and synthesizing these into a hypothetical generalized cadastral workflow. The workflow consists of preprocessing, image segmentation, line extraction, contour generation and postprocessing. The review lists example methods per workflow step—including a description, trialed implementation, and a list of case studies applying individual methods. Furthermore, accuracy assessment methods are outlined. Advantages and drawbacks of each approach are discussed in terms of their applicability on UAV data. This review can serve as a basis for future work on the implementation of most suitable methods in a UAV-based cadastral mapping workflow.

ArcGIS Pro 1.4 was released last week and hopefully some of you have already had a look at the new features. I've been watching it growing up since its first release and it became my desktop tool of choice a couple of versions ago. At 1.4 it now covers the workflows I typically use and my days of dipping back into ArcMap may be over.

Georeferencing

For me, one of the big gaps has now been plugged with the arrival of georeferencing for imagery and CAD. To georeference an image, click on the Imagery ribbon to activate the Georeferencing ribbon.
