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.

Maps are in many ways quintessential to understanding the data around us and they provide the geographic context that empowers decision making. But maps alone are just a small part of what it takes to make geographic data shine. Beyond plain maps, Microsoft Power BI is unlocking new capabilities that let you take geographic information to a whole new level in collaboration with Esri, a leader in the geographic information systems (GIS) industry.
Esri, the world leader in geographic information system (GIS) technology, is collaborating with Microsoft Corp. on two new offerings leveraging Microsoft Power BI and Microsoft Azure. This collaboration makes the power of geospatial analytics available to a much broader audience than ever before.
As a continent, Australia covers more than 7.5 million square kilometres of land, which is so vast that environmental parameters cannot be effectively monitored using traditional in-situ or on-the-ground sensors network. The limitation of deploying a very dense grid of these sensors is that they are expensive, and cover a very limited space. The sensors …
How can GIS and Big Data be conceptualized and applied to solve problems? How can the way we define and train data professionals move the integration of Big Data and GIS simultaneously forward? How can GIS as a system and GIS as a science be brought together to meet the challenges we face as a global community? What is the difference between a classic GIS researcher and a modern GIS researcher? How and why must GIS become part of open science?
These issues and more are examined in the slides and the thought-provoking text underneath each slide. Geographic Information Science has long welcomed strong collaborations among computer scientists, information scientists, and other Earth scientists to solve complex scientific questions, and therefore parallels the emergence as well as the acceptance of “data science.”"
"Go beyond two-dimensional imaging with digital elevation models Digital elevation models (DEMs) provide a more complete picture of the situation on the ground. DEMs come in a variety of options, depending on the problem you’re trying to solve.
- Digital surface models (DSM) include buildings, trees and more. DSMs help with applications like line-of-sight analysis and signal propagation.
- Digital terrain models (DTM) show only the ‘bare earth’ terrain. DTMs provide more precise results for flood models, excavation calculations, contours and orthorectification.
- Point cloud is a format that works with existing Lidar workflows, allowing for easy editing and attribution of data.
- Vricon 3D is a fully textured 3D model that provides a truly lifelike view of the world.
- Vricon True Ortho is a simulated 50cm satellite image. It provides a nadir view of the ground that’s ideal for cadastral."
Trata-se de uma representação cartográfica de todo o território brasileiro, com limites estaduais e internacionais, feições hidrográficas, pontos extremos, principais localidades pertinentes à escala, sistemas viário e ferroviário e principais edificações. O Mapa Político do Brasil está disponível aqui. Elaborado a partir da base cartográfica contínua do Brasil, que utiliza a escala 1:1.000.000 (onde 1 cm = 10 km), esse mapa é referência para geração de outros mapas em diversas publicações do IBGE, como o Atlas Geográfico Escolar, o Atlas do Censo Demográfico 2010, o Anuário Estatístico Brasileiro e o Brasil em Números, entre outras.
The Internet of Things is a fairly new industry that has come up around the age of information, the internet, and social media which is defined as “a proposed development of the Internet in which everyday objects have network connectivity, allowing them to send and receive data.” At a conference held by The Energy Conference Network, IoT Houston was my first real introduction into this development and I have to say it is absolutely fascinating, especially if you are a science fiction tech junkie like myself, I have to say my first thoughts were Cyberdine, Skynet and when is Sarah Connor going to come through the door with a T100. Although this never happened I did learn about how autonomous computer decision making using artificial intelligence can be applied directly to business operations and asset management for Oil and Gas. The applications of this technology will revolutionize how business is done.
London calling London recently played host to over 3,000 GIS (Geographic Information System) professionals. What made it different from many of the other IT events held in the capital, though, was the large proportion of female industry experts in attendance, making it arguably the most gender neutral IT event the industry has ever seen.

Global smart-mapping leader Esri has partnered with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign in the fight against malaria.
Malaria claims the life of a child every two minutes, despite being both preventable and treatable. Recently, Nothing But Nets created a story map using Esri’s ArcGIS platform to help people learn more about malaria. The campaign is designed to raise awareness, funds, and voices to protect families from the disease. The new story map shares the work of the campaign, the progress against malaria and the path forward towards eradication, as well as providing a clear call to action for people interested in joining the fight against the vector-borne disease.
“Technology can be an excellent tool in the fight against malaria,” said Margaret Reilly McDonnell, director of Nothing But Nets.
Are you interested in ArcGIS for Server but don't know where to start? This is the session for you! You will learn how to make your maps, geoprocessing models, and other GIS resources available to others by publishing them on a GIS server. You will also be introduced to web mapping fundamentals, cached vs. dynamic maps, how to create new web apps, and finding the best help resources.
A new module for storing and publishing VGI was implemented to SensLog. Common type of VGI are Points of Interest (POI). The concept of POI is very similar to general observation concept. Implemented scenario suppose that collected POI is spatially and temporally localized observation with several attributes and connected multimedia files. POI is classified into one of predefined categories and can be assigned to some dataset.
