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.

Wind erosion is a widespread phenomenon causing serious soil degradation. It is estimated that about 28% of the global land area experiencing land degradation suffers from this wind-driven soil erosion process. In agricultural lands, soil erosion by wind mainly results from the removal of the finest and most biological active part of the soil richest in organic matter and nutrients. Repeated exposure to wind erosion can have permanent effects on agricultural soil degradation, making it difficult to maintain favourable soil conditions in the long run.
Wind erosion is also a European phenomenon. According to the European Environment Agency, about 42 million ha of European agricultural land may be affected by wind erosion. Local studies reported that wind erosion can affect both the semi-arid areas of the Mediterranean region and the temperate climate areas of the northern European countries. However, little is known about the extent and magnitude of wind erosion throughout Europe.
Understanding spatial and temporal patterns in land susceptibility to wind erosion is essential to design effective management strategies to control land degradation. The lack of researches, particularly at the landscape to regional scales, prevents national and European institutions from taking actions aimed at an effective mitigating of land degradation. With respect to this significant research gaps, the EC-JRC Soil started a new series of studies at Pan-European scale to assess:
Land susceptibility to wind erosion: An Index of Land Susceptibility to Wind Erosion (ILSWE) was created by combining spatiotemporal variations of the most influential wind erosion factors (i.e. climatic erosivity, soil erodibility, vegetation cover and landscape roughness). Wind erosion susceptibility of soils: The wind-erodible fraction of soil (EF) is one of the key parameters for estimating the susceptibility of soil to wind erosion. Quantitative assessment of soil loss potential in agricultural lands [work in progress]. Former studies: Agriculture Field Parameters on NUTS-3 regions

According to Esri’s 2014 Open Data year in review, more than 750 organizations around the world have joined ArcGIS Open Data, publishing 391 public sites, resulting in 15,848 open data sets shared. These organizations include more than 100 cities, 43 countries, and 35 US states. At the beginning of 2015, the organizations represented included 390 from North America, 157 from Europe, 121 from Africa, 39 from Asia, and 22 from Oceania. More than 42,000 shapefiles, KML files, and CSV files were downloaded from these sites since July 2014. Recently, we wrote about one of these sites, the Maryland Open Data Portal. Another is the set of layers from the city of Launceton, in Tasmania, Australia.
The 2015 Geodesign Summit, the sixth in the series, took place last week at the Esri campus in Redlands, Calif. The event continues to draw a consistent and passionate crowd who have evolved from defining the art and science of geodesign to applying it and making an impact.
GIS GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out): A checklist of data errorsGARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT: This is one of the most famous acronyms in the history of computing. What this means is that it doesn’t matter if you have the most brilliant software and hardware: if your data is rubbish then your outputs or analysis will be rubbish as well. When I am working with data, particularly migrating or loading data between systems I check the accuracy of that data as part of the process (rather than loading it and th
The whole platform describes the standard for open data platform quite good: easy “search and get data” capabilities, support for open standards like geoJSON. But they really need to work on the performance when it comes to big data. Despite this I would like to work on with this portal and I prefer it much more compared to other data portals I have seen already (keeping the German ones in mind ). You want to judge by your own? Try it with some nice data from Maryland

The convergence of five global trends—geo-awareness, geo-enablement, geotechnologies, citizen science, and storytelling—has the potential to offer geography a world audience.
Five converging global trends may present geography with world attention that may be unprecedented in the history of the discipline. These include geo-awareness, geo-enablement, geotechnologies, citizen science, and storytelling. Each of these recent trends is transforming the audience for geography and how geography is taught, perceived, and used.
Issues central to geography are now part of the global consciousness. Everyday objects are rapidly becoming locatable, and thus able to be monitored and mapped. Many tools and data sets that were formerly used and examined only by geographers and other earth and environmental scientists are now in the hands of the general public. Citizens outside academia are becoming involved in contributing data to the scientific community. Multimedia and cloud-based GIS have greatly multiplied the attraction that maps have had for centuries to tell stories.
Geographic Information System (GIS) is a tool used across almost every field bringing data analysis, efficiency, and cost-saving mechanisms to the government.
