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.

The Open Data Strategy for Northern Ireland contains the framework and principles by which we aim to build capacity for delivering open data in Northern Ireland. The implementation of this strategy will create an ‘open by default’ culture whereby the publishing of open data becomes part of everyday management practices. The strategy covers all of the Northern Ireland public sector.

The communities living around Outamba-Kilimi National Park near Sierra Leone’s northern border with Guinea have survived off of the region’s lush rainforest for generations. But rapid deforestation, slash and burn agricultural practices, and bush fires are ravaging the area and other parts of the Upper Guinean Rainforest, which once covered much of Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia, Ivory Coast and parts of Ghana.
Writer Paul Salopek is walking the path of human migration from Africa to the tip of South America, and writing stories along the way, as part of a 7 year journalism project. The CGA is making maps for Paul as he travels this route.
Map 1: Shows exposed sea beds at the human migration started, and the rough path humans took.
Map 2: uses Fuller projection and spectral coloring scheme to illustrate distance traveled and time required for humans to travel this path.
Map 3: Thematic map of elevation to illustrate the undulating nature of the first leg of the walk.
Map 4: Interactive web map of ancient Islamic pilgrimage routes to Mecca.
Dear Geo-Geeks, for 2015 GIS Day we aim to do something truly Geoawesome and we would like to ask you to do it with us. We would like to create “A Brief History Of Maps” where we will mark on a timeline of all important dates and milestones that happened in cartography, GIS, and location-based

"The AGI Foresight Report 2020 gives insight into the issues we believe will have a significant impact on our economy, environment and society over the next five years. The purpose of the Report is to both observe and challenge the current role of Geographic Information (GI) in relation to these issues.
The Report highlights five key themes that are of relevance not only to the GI industry, but to anyone with a vested interest in how technology and information will change our world and businesses in the next five years. These five themes – Open, Big Data, BIM and Future Cities, innovative technologies and policy – form the backbone of our Report, bringing together papers from experts across industries and disciplines.
They show that the GI community can, and must, play a big part in helping us to understand and maximise benefits from these areas, and meet head on the challenges and opportunities the next five years will bring.
Recently GovLoop spoke with Bill Farnsworth, Idaho Geospatial Information Officer about how Idaho is unlocking its GIS data.

Public sector information is information held by the public sector. The Directive on the re-use of public sector information provides a common legal framework for a European market for government-held data. It is built around the key pillars of the internal market: free flow of data, transparency and fair competition. It is important to note that not all of the public sector information is Open Data.

About the European Data Portal
Going beyond the harvesting of metadata, the strategic objective of the European Data Portal is to improve accessibility and increase the value of Open Data:
Accessibility: How to access this information? Where to find it? How to make it available in the first place? In domains, across domains, across countries? In what language? Value: For what purpose and what economic gain? Societal gain? Democratic gain? In what format? What is the critical mass? The European Data Portal addresses the whole data value chain: from data publishing to data re-use.
Copernicus Emergency Management Service - Mapping is a service funded by European Commission aimed at providing actors in the management of natural and man-made disasters, in particular Civil Protection Authorities and Humanitarian Aid actors, with mapping products based on satellite imagery.
