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.

For the last two decades, GIS technologies have increasingly been used to incorporate not only spatial relationships but also analyzing and visualizing space across time. Spatial-temporal GIS, or 4D GIS, has, in particular, become essential in areas where GIS is needed for predicting dimensions across time.
Last time we had the task to create mountain ranges polygons for the whole world. I prepared a small tutorial referred to that. Maybe you can find something interesting for you. It will show you a model on how to select defined regions, slicing raster, smoothing and also exporting desired features. Enjoy! Location and data The first step is to find a location. It’s always useful to check wikipedia in order to do this, but also there is a very interesting website: http://peakbagger.com/default.aspx, where you can find many ranges from all over the world. When you already have latitude and…
"With Big Data and Open Data policies on everybody’s lips, 2015 confirmed that these trends are here to stay. Companies, governments, and individuals recognise them as drivers of innovation and growth. Satellite data is undoubtedly part of this Big Picture. But where does it stand?
Copernicus is operational as of 2014, and Galileo is about to become so. But to produce the successful services everyone is hoping for, satellite data needs to be used alongside a profusion of other available non-space data sources – Big Data, that is. Successful satellite services also need to rely heavily on in-depth thematic knowledge. Competition in the Big Data landscape is harsh tough. The vast majority of non-space data sources are far less complex to exploit and access. For instance, many sources of data require no specialised processing from raw, unlike satellite data."
The Society is working with Richard Harris, Professor of Quantitative Social Geography at the University of Bristol, to develop the programme, which will also raise awareness in schools and higher education about recent curriculum changes, and share the good practice and expertise that already exists in both communities.
“Teaching data skills is vital because it helps pupils learn to not just accept data, but to first cast a critical eye”
In the past, GIS has been one of those edgy, niche technologies that required some skill to take full advantage of its capabilities. However, today’s GIS is easier to use and, therefore, more accessible to the masses. Moreover, data providers offer massive amounts of quality information, well worth accessing. Within just a few years, these proficiencies have driven the growth of GIS applications around the world and in nearly every industry. GIS is awakening the world to the power of geography and bringing us into an era of geographic enlightenment.
