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.

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.

Managing for the Best | ArcNews | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
To achieve true success, managers must not only manage; they must also lead.

These two concepts are different. As Warren Bennis, creator of the modern field of leadership studies, has said, "Managers are people who do things right and leaders are people who do the right thing." When management and leadership are employed in concert, great things can happen.

I lead an incredibly talented and dedicated GIS team at Tallahassee-Leon County GIS (TLCGIS), an interlocal GIS agency formed in 1990 to serve the City of Tallahassee, the Leon County Board of County Commissioners, and the Leon County Property Appraiser's Office. TLCGIS's missions include promoting resource sharing, reducing redundancy in data collection and maintenance, encouraging solutions based on enterprise information management, and enhancing decision-making for public officials.

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.
