The implementation of an Enterprise Geographical Information System to support Cadastre and Expropriation activities.

The implementation of an Enterprise Geographical Information System to support Cadastre and Expropriation activities. | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Abstract

 

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.

Announcing ArcGIS Maps for Power BI by Esri (Preview) | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
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.

Why satellite data is effective over in-situ sensors when it comes to environment monitoring - Geospatial World

Why satellite data is effective over in-situ sensors when it comes to environment monitoring - Geospatial World | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
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 …

Connections between Geospatial Data and Becoming a Data Professional

Connections between Geospatial Data and Becoming a Data Professional | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"Dr. Dawn Wright, Chief Scientist at Esri, recently shared a presentation she gave on the topic of “A Geospatial Industry Perspective on Becoming a Data Professional.” (http://dusk.geo.orst.edu/Pickup/Esri/Sci-Data-Con-Panel.pdf)

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.

Pardora’s Box – Is Everything of the Internet? | | Oil and Gas Space | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
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.

The United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets Campaign Partners with Esri to Combat Malaria - GeoCommunity SpatialNews

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.

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.
