Fernando Gil's insight:

Dear colleagues,

Yesterday, July 25, 2014 I defended, with success, my Master's thesis in GIS and Science entitled "The implementation of an Enterprise Geographical Information System to support Cadastre and Expropriation activities. The case of Ferbritas Cadastre Information System.", at ISEGI/NOVA, Lisbon - Portugal (http://www.slideshare.net/FernandoGil/fernando-gil-master-thesis-public-presentation)

I just published my thesis at https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Fernando_Gil4/publications, so I invite you all to go to ResearchGate site.

Best regards, Fernando

Mapping the Histories - Google Maps Mania

Mapping the Histories - Google Maps Mania | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Herodotus, the Father of History, was a fifth century Greek historian. The Histories of Herodotus recounts the origins of the Great War between the Greeks and Persians and the rise of the Persian Empire.

The Hestia Project was set-up to carry out geospatial analysis of Herodotus's Histories. Part of that project includes this Herodotus Timemap. The Timemap connects the text of the Histories with a Simile timeline to allow users to visualize geographical references in the Histories on a Google Map.

As you progress through the chapters of the Histories the markers automatically update on the map to show the referenced locations. You can also progress through the text and the map by using the Simile timeline.

Drone Imagery for OpenStreetMap

Drone Imagery for OpenStreetMapNovember 19 2013 by  Bobby Sudekum

Last weekend we captured 100 acres of aerial imagery at 4cm resolution. It took less than an hour to fly, and it was easy to publish the imagery on the web using TileMill and then trace inOpenStreetMap. Autonomous flying platforms like Sensefly’s eBee paired up with a nimble software stack are changing aerial mapping. Drones like the eBee can cheaply and accurately photograph medium-sized areas, and then the imagery can be made immediately available to everyone.

Why maps matter - FCW

Geodata

Why maps matterBy Frank KonkelMar 17, 2014 

People used to use maps so they wouldn't get lost. But in recent years, access to the Global Positioning System and the proliferation of mobile technology have made paper-based maps almost irrelevant. Unless you're in uncharted territory, it's hard to get lost anymore. Basic geography is as easy as inputting an address and letting your mobile phone tell you how to get there.

 

And as mapping technology advances, it allows for far more than foolproof directions. Federal agencies now use geospatial data, geo-analytics and multi-layered maps for myriad purposes, including gathering intelligence, predicting disease outbreaks and sharing data pools with the public.

 

The allure of mapping lies in its intuitiveness. Even simple "dots on a map can be a powerful way to see trends in data," said Josh Campbell, geographic information system architect for the Humanitarian Information Unit at the State Department. "Maps are a compressed mechanism for storytelling."

Geographic information systems invade big data

Geographic information systems invade big data | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Geographic information systems invade big dataBy Drew Robb - Tech Page One Jul 28 2014ShareShare on facebookShare on twitterShare on google_plusone_shareShare on linkedinShare on email 

Geographic information systems (GIS), which are best known for their mapping functions, are invading big data. These systems have reached new levels through their ability to provide locational context to vast pools of information.

GIS can now isolate patterns, adjust strategies and pinpoint the biggest opportunities for businesses.

“Much of the discussion on big data is focusing on volume — the hours of video on the Web, social media interactions — but the challenge is to present the ocean of data as a pool of useful facts,” said Simon Thompson, director of commercial solutions at GIS vendor Esri. “GIS is a natural way to connect data, control its size and make it more relevant and usable.”

Learning ArcGIS Gets Real | ArcWatch

Learning ArcGIS Gets Real | ArcWatch | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Clint Brown, director of Software Products and leader of the Learn ArcGIS team, says the website his team designed provides a new pathway for any type of learner to discover the power of mapping, start to make maps, and begin to solve spatial problems using geographic analysis.


You can choose from a gallery of lessons to find one that interests you.

"The whole world of GIS has changed radically with the rapid evolution of the ArcGIS platform," Brown said. "In the old days, we had to teach people about things like geodatabases and topology, the under-the-hood things that make GIS work. But so much now just works, so we have an opportunity to go beyond that and teach people how to solve real problems."

 

The site's interactive, and much of the work is done on the web using the mapping and spatial analysis tools and data available from Esri's cloud-hosted ArcGIS Online. The lessons also include online maps that you can explore to see if a spatial question or problem interests you.

Staunton Embraces ArcGIS Online


"The City of Staunton [VA] announced today the launch of a new “Maps & Apps” website.  Maps & Apps replaces the traditional city “GIS” site previously available for use by the public.  Information can now be accessed from a collection of Maps & Apps.  New apps include: “Crime Information,” “Traffic Information” and “Election History,” in addition to “Real Estate Information.”

It's an ArcGIS Online gallery with a mishmash of things from the city, state and private providers; I can't tell which are maps and which are apps and am not sure if it matters. The inconsistency between them was jarring and some didn't even have maps! Several links went to generic ArcGIS Online maps like the "current weather" one at right. "
