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.

"A vast amount of data is created every day from sensors and devices: GPS devices on vehicles, objects, and people; sensors monitoring the environment; live video feeds; speed sensors in roadways; social media feeds. What it means is that we have an emerging source of valuable data. It’s called “real-time” data. Only recently has the technology emerged to enable this real-time data to be incorporated into GIS applications.
The real-time GIS capabilities of the ArcGIS platform have transformed how information is utilized during any given situation. Real-time dashboards provide actionable views into the daily operations of organizations, empowering decision makers and stakeholders with the latest information they need to drive current and future ideas and strategies."

Mas estamos empenhados e confiantes em alargar esta rede.
É um caminho longo, mas irreversível. Em nome de uma cidade mais participativa, inteligente e com melhor governança.
A plethora of probes have spent several decades exploring nearly every corner of our solar system. The result: stunning imagery, startling scientific discoveries--and comprehensive maps of worlds many millions and even billions of miles away from us.
Starting with our sun, let's take a journey to the outward reaches of our solar system and examine some of the most detailed maps available for planets, moons, asteroids, and comets in our solar system.

qgis2web generates a web map from your current QGIS project, either as OpenLayers3 or Leaflet. It replicates as many aspects of the project as it can, including layers, styles (including categorized and graduated), and extent. No server-side software required.
I have found the following actions to be effective communication vehicles to promote GIS visibility and it’s importance to the overall Enterprise.
1. Utilize a GIS Steering Committee 2. Create or Update a GIS Strategic Plan 3. Include GIS in the IT Strategic Plan 4. Have IT and GIS Project/Architecture Discussions 5. Create an Organizational GIS Users Group
These five (5) Communication Channels all work in concert with each other for establishing a solid commitment to GIS within the organization. These channels don’t support themselves though. Depending on the size of your organization, a GIS Manager or Coordinator needs the CIO or IT Manager to support the importance of these communication channels in order to establish relevance. I have 4 of the 5 completed and have the GIS Strategic Plan in progress.
Let me know how many you can check off as completed and what your experiences have been."
A highly accurate, fully-automatic, ground-based weed mapping system enabling growers to target key aspects of their black-grass management with great precision should be available for commercial use within the next two years, according to the latest report from the eyeWeed project co-funded by Innovate UK.
What is more, it is set to form the basis of a season-long platform for monitoring and mapping a growing range of valuable precision farming parameters. The project consortium of commercial and academic partners led by Agrii and including the University of Reading, Concurrent Solutions, Knight Farm Machinery, Syngenta, and Patchwork Technology has been successfully turning the University’s original proof of concept into a practical system for reliable farm black-grass mapping use over the past five years.
This study aims to cover key existing and evolving end-user needs that can support new product development efforts in the GIS/Analytics domain. Stakeholder views from across the agriculture, mining, and forestry domains have been analyzed for evolving opportunities that can be capitalized by GIS/Analytics solution developers and satellite imagery solution providers. The stakeholder views largely cover web-based product delivery via smart devices and point to a growing need to observe remote locations for various change and impact assessments that can support agriculture and forestry development efforts. This study can serve as a starting point for any new product development or market-penetration efforts planned by satellite imagery and solution providers.
An orthophoto is by definition a geometrically corrected image of uniform scale, resolution and quality. An orthophoto, may be created from a single or multiple photographs (hundreds or even thousands) which are processed using photogrammetric methods in order to produce an orthogonal projection view of a site (like a map) or a facade (like an elevation drawing). In this article we will call this kind of orthophoto, the "real" orthophoto to distinguish it from its recently introduced adversary, the pointcloud orthophoto.
Traditionally, and before the dynamic emergence of 3D laser scanners, surveying engineers specializing in photogrammetry would acquire large datasets of image data in order to geometrically document large areas, buildings or objects in large detail and deliver high resolution and precision synthetic imagery and 3D models. It can be said that photogrammetric surveys were the predecessor of high definition surveys. Through photogrammetric processing an engineer could always obtain a pointcloud and document the form of any given object or space according to any desired specifications for resolution and accuracy.
Mapillary for ArcGIS connects your GIS data with street level photos. With ArcGIS support, users can navigate photos in the web-based viewer, load any ArcGIS data layer or base map and use Mapillary street level photos to edit and update their data. The integration allows for edits to be automatically synced back to ArcGIS Online.

As a GIS consultant I sometimes spend surprisingly little time on GIS. Contrary to what clients might expect, my advice is usually not to rush into solutions. Instead, we first spend some time defining the problem. This is an investment that repays itself many times over once the project is delivered. It sounds a lot more trivial than it is, as often the problem needs reframing before it can be tackled successfully. When, for example, geologists say they are able to spend only 30% of their time on geology, it pays to consider what problem GIS is exactly supposed to solve. No map gizmo, however sexy, will make much of a difference unless it also addresses the other 70%. Once the problem is clearly defined, the solution basically designs itself. And implemented correctly, it will deliver measurable results and benefits. The oil and gas industry may be facing tough times, but with GIS being faster to implement and easier to use than ever before, the time has never been better to re-evaluate how it could help you grow out of the downturn. Sorry, did I just mention a solution?

"Explore the world’s new coastlines if sea level rises 216 feet.
The maps here show the world as it is now, with only one difference: All the ice on land has melted and drained into the sea, raising it 216 feet and creating new shorelines for our continents and inland seas.
There are more than five million cubic miles of ice on Earth, and some scientists say it would take more than 5,000 years to melt it all. If we continue adding carbon to the atmosphere, we’ll very likely create an ice-free planet, with an average temperature of perhaps 80 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the current 58."
