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.

"Los trabajos presentados recogen artículos y presentaciones realizadas por más de 200 investigadores y profesionales de la Geografía organizados en 6 líneas temáticas:
- en la ordenación y gestión del territorio - en las tecnologías de la información geográfica - en el estudio del paisaje: historia, presente y futuro - en la enseñanza-aprendizaje de la Geografía - en el medio natural - en la actividad económica y la sociedad
Como señala Paloma Ibarra Benlloch, miembro del Comité Organizador, se han planteado «como plataforma de difusión y de debate fundamental sobre estos temas, intrínsecamente geográficos y que tienen con frecuencia implicaciones relevantes para la búsqueda de la sostenibilidad ambiental, económica y social».

An article co-authored by Benjamin Pross, Christoph Stasch, and Albert Remke, of the 52°North Initiative for Geospatial Open Source Software GmbH; and Satish Sankaran and Marten Hogeweg of Esri describes a development that should interest anyone who uses geospatial data. The 52°North Initiative for Geospatial Open Source Software has developed an open-source extension to ArcGIS for Desktop that enables access to Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC), Web Processing Services (WPS). The result? This initiative makes it possible for these services to be used in the same manner as native ArcGIS geoprocessing tools. In other words, they appear in the list of tools just as a standard buffer or overlay tool would appear. Yes, it could be just that easy.

Recently, I read an article about the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) that seeks to explain why the CGDI, among many things, is relevant. While the Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation (CCMEO) who is in charge of the CGDI have updated it to reflect changes to the Government of Canada’s own Open Data infrastructure, the CCMEO only offers a small glimpse of what’s on offer for Geospatial Open Data in Canada.
Right now, there are few resources discussing the various open data offerings covering Canada. Of the few that exist many are either poorly engineered, out of date, or sometimes both. I’m providing a snapshot of open geospatial data resources covering Canada as 2016 comes to an end.
Why IoT? Balance return of investments with risks, look at trade-offs between cost – availability – performance and capacity – safety and compliance. Big data and IoT provide insights to assess this dynamically.
Spatial computing encompasses the ideas, solutions, tools, technologies, and systems that transform our lives by creating a new understanding of locations—how we know, communicate, and visualize our relationship to locations and how we navigate through them. Pervasive GPS allows hikers in national parks, boaters on lakes, children visiting new places, and taxis (or Uber drivers or self-driving cars) and unmanned aerial vehicles to know their locations, nearby facilities, and routes to reach places of interest
At Esri, we believe that geographic information system (GIS) technology provides a critical framework for understanding, communicating, and organizing information about our world. Underpinning our work at Esri is the belief that applied geographic science provides a powerful medium for understanding complex challenges and that, through the application of GIS, we can explore possible solutions. In light of this, we have been closely tracking the process of establishing the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), creating capabilities that will help create and monitor the SDG data indicators. We believe that Esri’s ArcGIS platform is highly relevant as an applied toolset to achieve the goals set forth in the 2030 Agenda.
The majority of LAStools users are processing airborne LiDAR. That should not surprise as airborne is by far the most common form of LiDAR in terms of square kilometers covered. The availability of LiDAR as “open data” is also pretty much restricted to airborne surveys, which are often tax-payer funded and then distributed freely to achieve maximum return of investment.
But folks are increasingly using our software to do some of the “heavy lifting” for mobile LiDAR, either mounted on a truck for scanning cities or on a train for capturing railroad infrastructure. The LiDAR collected for the cities of Budapest and Singapore, for example, was pre-processed by multi-core scripted LAStools when the scanning trucks returned with their daily trajectories worth of point clouds captured by a RIEGL VMX-450 mobile mapping system.
You might be an observant professional in a department that uses GIS. Your organization may be large and have many departments for which location is important. If that is the case, there is a strong possibility that those departments will approach you for certain services, e.g. cartography, location analysis, satellite imagery, spatial analysis, data processing, etc. In such a situation, it does not take a long time for you to realize the potential for using the GIS tools you have at your disposal for the rest of the company. Also, with time, you realize that there is a limit to the services you can perform on behalf of end-users in other departments and your real mission is to empower them to become capable of solving their own spatial problems using shared GIS tools.
Open data has contributed to dramatic improvements in a wide array of fields over the past few decades, affecting how we look at astronomy, genetics, climate change, sports and more. But until recently, crime has gone without the open analysis prevalent in other fields because crime data has been closely held by law enforcement agencies and has usually only been released in bulk at monthly, quarterly or annual intervals.
Now, thanks to efforts from the federal government and individual municipalities, crime analysis is positioned for a leap forward as cities place unprecedented quantities of data online. This data can be analyzed to help residents understand more about crime in their cities — for example, I recently used open data from New Orleans and Baltimore to separate shooting incidents from murders to get a fuller picture of gun violence in those cities.
This chart allows you to select one indicator, one year, and compare countries on a map. Countries are coloured according to their score, so you can easily see, for example, the performance of the neighbours. Larger countries will be more visible than smaller, although surface do not correspondent exactly to the total population."
Cities are increasingly releasing data that they can use to make life better for their residents online — enabling journalists and researchers to better inform the public.
Los Angeles, for example, has analyzed data about injuries and deaths on its streets and published it online. Now people can check its conclusions and understand why LA’s public department prioritizes certain intersections.
The impact from these kinds of investments can lead directly to saving lives and preventing injuries. The work is part of a broader effort around the world to make cities safer.
Adaptar para a mudança. Este foi o lema do AdaptForChange, um projeto que teve início em abril de 2015 e que ao longo de quase dois anos contribuiu para um conhecimento profundo do estado das florestas do Alentejo e que culminou com o desenvolvimento do Plano de Adaptação de Mértola às Alterações Climáticas, a implementar nos próximos anos.
