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.

Singapore to take the Open Geo Data way to realise Smart Nation vision

Singapore to take the Open Geo Data way to realise Smart Nation vision | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"Mr Lee said: “One way in which we are going to do this is to open up our maps, our databases of places and information about that so that the public can share their geospatial information." As part of this, he demonstrated MyTransport SG bus app to the audience, which showed the power of integration of geo data with other open datasets from the transportation department.

 

PM Lee further said how geospatial data can play a key role to understand aspects such as  animal sightings, traffic incidents, potential hazards for cyclists, even the location for best mee pok or nasi lemak.

 

He also announced the launch of a project Virtual Singapore, where 3D datasets of buildings, built-up spaces and the surrounding environment would be integrated. One of the key application areas aimed out of this data is towards energy efficiency management of buildings."

Selecting the Right Computing Architecture for Your GIS | Dave Peters, Esri Insider

Selecting the Right Computing Architecture for Your GIS | Dave Peters, Esri Insider | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"From centralized to distributed operations, choosing the right architecture pattern for your GIS can improve user productivity and reduce operational costs.


[Note:  This is latest post in our series about Managing GIS.]

There are benefits of centralized operations, and there are some reasons why distributed operations may be preferred by some organizations. We can find reasons why a distributed operation may work better than a centralized one. Distributed operations require more hardware, higher administration cost, higher implementation risk, more data access problems (to centralized data sources), and reduced security. Selecting the right architecture pattern to best meet your business needs can improve user productivity and reduce operational costs."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 20, 1:03 PM

On this Thanksgiving, I want to remind this community that geospatial skills can be used to help othersWant to see geographic knowledge and geospatial skills in action?  Crowd-sourced mapping is increasingly an important resource during an emergency.  Poorer places are often not as well mapped out by the commercial cartographic organizations and these are oftentimes the places that are hardest hit by natural disasters.  Relief agencies depend on mapping platforms to handle the logistics of administering aid and assessing the extent of the damage and rely on these crowd-sourced data sets made by people like you and me.

Open Source - The door to open source geospatial software has been unlocked. It’s time to take a peek inside.

Open Source - The door to open source geospatial software has been unlocked. It’s time to take a peek inside. | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"OSG. We’ll use that acronym in this article for open source geospatial software, as there appears to be no universal acronym. OSG is not about “hacking.” And it is not always “free”; some are developed on contract via a growing industry of consultants and OSG “bridge” companies that provide value-added suites and support (see the sidebar “Lowering the Cost of Free Software.”) OSG is not just a bunch of nerds rebelling against the status quo; OSG has become a serious and viable set of tools that can complement the proprietary suites and that does not have to be adversarial.

 

OSG has become quite real and even institutional: states, federal agencies, and even whole countries have adopted “open source first” polices. A shining example is the Ordnance Survey of the UK. Read about it in “Open Source in the UK” by Nicholas Duggan in this issue."

 

"The door to open source geospatial software has been unlocked. It’s time to take a peek inside.   The open source geospatial movement is not purely about “free” (as in no cost). There truly are other aspects of “free,” as in “free to develop without constraints,” and free access to public geodata without necessarily without necessarily having to invest in proprietary software."

Battlespace awareness through big data - GCN

Battlespace awareness through big data - GCN | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

"A hundred years ago, the cutting edge in “battlespace awareness” was sending a soldier up in a balloon to get a bird’s eye view of enemy deployments.

 

Today, the Navy and Esri are teaming up to explore the current frontier in battlespace awareness – combining massive amounts of data available from satellite and other remote-sensing platforms with the analytic tools of geospatial information systems.

 

In September, the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command (NAVMETOCCOM) signed a three-year agreement with Esri to jointly develop applications based on Esri’s off-the-shelf software that will provide, according to NAVMETOCCOM commander Rear Adm. Tim Gallaudet, “unmatched battlespace awareness and environmental information to the warfighters that yields better decisions made faster than the adversary.”
