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.

Understand the concept of applied geography in Chapter 1 of The ArcGIS Book


The first chapter in The ArcGIS Book acknowledges the work of current GIS professionals and introduces concepts and terminology to aspiring GIS users. It invites both long-time users and newcomers to consider the possibilities that a Web GIS implementation has opened up. This chapter features Esri President Jack Dangermond sharing his vision about the current state of GIS, the road ahead, and how applied geography makes useful information available to everyone.

Ferbritas Cadastre Information System - 2011 Esri SAG Award Winners

Ferbritas Cadastre Information System - 2011 Esri SAG Award Winners | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Project Goal


The Cadastre Information System (FBSIC) was designed to meet the needs and activities of entities or organizations to whom is important to ensure the dynamic control of cadastral and real estate property. 
The process starts with collecting and processing information from the "foundations" and continues building up the collection of valuable information that the company already has that goes with producing, seeking its immediate availability to the customer and all specialties of internal needs, enabling also its use for other purposes such as asset appreciation. 


Adopting geographical information technology and develop the required software, properly integrated with other information subsystems of the organization, focused on production and business management.


FBSIC is supported by a scalable architecture, standards-based, ensuring a high sustainability of long-term application. Allows viewing, editing and analysis of geographic and alphanumeric information of cadastre projects.
