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 Landsat 8 Data User’s Handbook is a living document prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey Landsat Project Science Office at the Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, SD and the NASA Landsat Project Science Office at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Its purpose is to provide a basic understanding and associated reference material for the Landsat 8 observatory and its science data products. In doing so, this document does not include a detailed description of all technical details of the Landsat 8 mission, but focuses on the information needed by the users to gain an understanding of the science data products.
The Landsat 8 Data User’s Handbook includes various sections that provide an overview of reference material and a more detailed description of applicable data user and product information. This document describes the background for the Landsat 8 mission as well as previous Landsat missions (Section 1) before providing a comprehensive overview of the current Landsat 8 observatory, including the spacecraft, both the OLI and TIRS instruments and the Landsat 8 concept of operations (Section 2). The document then includes an overview of radiometric and geometric instrument calibration as well as a description of the observatory component reference systems and the calibration parameter file (Section 3), followed by a comprehensive description of Level 1 Products and product generation (Section 4). Addressed next is the conversion of DNS to physical units (Section 5) and finally, an overview of data search and access using the various on-line tools (Section 6). The applicable reference materials are included at the along with the list of known issues associated with Landsat 8 data (Appendix A) and an example of the Level-1 product metadata (Appendix B).
This document is controlled by the LSDS Configuration Control Board (CCB). Please submit changes to this document, as well as supportive material justifying the proposed changes, via a Change Request (CR) to the Process and Change Management Tool."
Interactive Maps Help Build Smart Communities Demographic, economic, and other changes are presenting communities with unprecedented challenges and opportunities. And there are reasons to be hopeful. A combination of smart technology and smart people can drive the development of smart communities.
"Future cities will be much smarter. Everything will be measured in real time and fine detail. GIS will play a major part in integrating real-time data and improving applications. The result will be better decisions, more efficiency, and improved communication." —Jack Dangermond, Esri President
Your community’s size and location are as unique as the people and their needs. But all communities have one thing in common. They can all be places that thrive because citizens and businesses work together with government to solve problems.
Every community can be a smart community, and these 15 interactive maps show how some have already started.
This is a very brief overview of geodetic systems. I needed to define this so I could start talking about orientations of north. Enjoy. PS there is not much of an ending, so sorry about that. I will continue on this topic in later videos! Geodetic Systems Introduction 4.00/5 ( 1 vote )
"MODIS stands for MODerate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer. The MODIS instrument is on board NASA’s Earth Observing System (EOS) Terra (EOS AM) and Aqua (EOS PM) satellites. The orbit of the Terra satellite goes from north to south across the equator in the morning and Aqua passes south to north over the equator in the afternoon resulting in global coverage every one to two days.
The EOS satellites have a ±55 degree scanning pattern and orbit at 705 km with a 2,330 km swath width. Although the resolution is coarser than other satellites, this allows for a global collection of imagery on a daily basis, which is made available in near real-time."
As the camera zoomed in from outer space toward one planet, the narrator of the short film said, "From out here, our earth doesn't seem all that significant. But this pale blue, unique, amazing speck of light hanging in the darkness is our home."
The narrator of the film, which opened the 2015 Esri User Conference (Esri UC), said that while humans have achieved much, problems persist, such as pollution, social conflict, overpopulation, climate change, drought, and natural disasters.
"But there is hope," he said. "We can choose to make the right decisions for our future. We must accept responsibility as stewards of the earth. Applying geographic knowledge is key to making smarter decisions."
Four stories told at the Esri UC Plenary Session underscored the conference theme, Applying Geography Everywhere, demonstrating how GIS technology can make a difference in solving what, at times, seems like insurmountable problems.

"Who are the people served by your city’s transit system? And who isn’t, but should be? How does transit change throughout the day? And what is the best way to analyze service areas? As urban areas are investing more time, money, and energy into creating public transit systems that increase accessibility and connect people to all the places they need to be, these questions are becoming more and more important. We’ll address these questions by exploring five new ways to view transit."
In an effort to support its enterprise-wide geospatial water distribution network modeling and management needs, the City of Henderson, N.C., has chosen to incorporate InfoWater, an advanced GIS-integrated water distribution software application from Innovyze.
To eliminate blight and revitalize neighborhoods, many local governments use large teams of volunteers to evaluate property conditions and identify structures that may be abandoned or in disrepair. These property surveys may take several months to complete and are hard to maintain over time. To simplify survey data collection, Esri partnered with the City of New Orleans (NOLA) to create an ArcGIS for Local Government solution called Photo Survey, a web application that can be used by local governments to publish street-level photo collections and conduct focused property surveys that may identify blight, damaged structures, or construction activity. Like all ArcGIS for Local Government solutions, Photo Survey is included with an ArcGIS subscription.
Discover how dashboards improve decision making in chapter 9 of The ArcGIS Book
"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. Real-time dashboards answer questions like: What’s happening right now? Where is it happening? Who is affected? What assets are available? Where are my people? Chapter 9 of The ArcGIS Book illustrates many applications of dashboards in a variety of industries."
