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.

Choropleth Maps - A Guide to Data Classification - GIS Geography

Choropleth Maps - A Guide to Data Classification - GIS Geography | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
You have your quantitative data ready to go. Your mouse is hovering over “classify” to craft one of the greatest choropleth maps man or woman has ever seen.

…But you can’t help wonder if you’re choosing the correct data classification mode.

Equal intervals, quantile, natural breaks, pretty breaks – there’s a lot to choose from. But what is the difference between each of them?

This post will help you understand the types of choropleth maps that exist and which one to choose for your maps.

A review of the Los Angeles GeoHub

A review of the Los Angeles GeoHub | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The Los Angeles GeoHub represents, in many ways, the next generation GIS data portal. It is in my view what a data portal should be, and given the population and areal size of Los Angeles, that the portal is robust makes it even more impressive.  The data user can search the city’s open data site, and also do something that not all sites allow:  “Explore all data”.  At the time of this writing, “exploring all data” resulted in 554 results, which one can then add to “my favorites” for later investigation and download.  One can also explore the data by category, including business, boundaries, health, infrastructure, planning, recreation and parks, safety, schools, and transportation.  Most data sets can be downloaded as a spreadsheet, as a KML file, or a shapefile.  These layers include grasslands, fire stations, cell phone towers, road work projects, traffic, parcels, and dozens and dozens more–even bus stop benches and other treasures.  Each download is quick and painless.

GIS and Karstic Cave Monitoring ~ GIS Lounge

GIS and Karstic Cave Monitoring ~ GIS Lounge | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Karstic, or limestone, caves are potentially an important source of information for paleoclimate data and provide perhaps the most accurate terrestrial climate information relative to all other data sources. Furthermore, they play an important role in the hydrologic cycle and act as global warming pollution traps. Monitoring, therefore, has become important of karst formation, including the number of speleothemes, which are stalactites and stalagmites, present in these caves and what happens to them over time.[1]

The Development of a Virtual Museum in Germany

The Development of a Virtual Museum in Germany | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
A ‘virtual museum’ (VM) has the potential to greatly improve the experience of a traditional museum visit, adding the possibility to provide information in a new, entertaining and convenient way. Interactive digital visualisations in particular can increase the comprehensibility of a complex topic. Such an application has now been developed as part of a master’s thesis for the Museum Alt-Segeberger Bürgerhaus in Bad Segeberg, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. The whole building, the museum exhibition and six historic stages of construction have been reconstructed based on the capture of 3D data. Visitors can explore the historic building in a real-time 3D environment, both in a desktop application and in virtual reality (VR).

NASA's Black Marble 2016 or Syrian Dark Years - Digital Geography | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
About four years ago, Daniel wrote a short article on how to publish a GeoTiff as maptiles and how to use this in a leaflet map. I would like to refresh that knowledge and apply this to the current release of the NASA images (“Black Marble 2016”) which were published last week and also compare the images using some LeafletJS magic.
