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.

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…
Welcome to the visual Wiki interface to the GI-N2K Body of Knowledge, hosted by BigKnowledge®. This site presents the BoK as a network of related concepts. You can use our graph or text interfaces to familiarize yourself with the structure of the BoK. Then, you may use it to help the GI-N2K community produce a BoK that serves its stated purposes. Please send your comments and suggestions to the GI-N2K team.
In this site, every subject is called a concept. With the knowledge areas, units, and topics of the 2006 GIS&T BoK as a starting point, the interface allows to propose modifications to existing concepts as well as proposed the creation of new concepts or the deletion of outdated concepts (via asserting its non-existence). The same can be done to relationships between concepts. To aid navigation, the concepts are colored according to the color scheme used on the cover of the 2006 edition of the GIS&T BoK.The learning objectives of the 2006 edition are called skills here, because they are practical abilities that demonstrate competence in a concept. Each concept has basic properties or attributes, such as its name and description.
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.
Sometimes when we are doing training tasks, users ask us about free datasets to practice and learn all the possibilities that gvSIG gives us. Fortunately there are a great quantity of free data today, but it's true that only a few times we find geographic information that allows us to enjoy while we learn to…
The project GI-N2K (Geographic information : Need to Know) aims to improve the way in which future GI professionals are prepared for the labor market so that the GI sector in general can evolve in a dynamic and innovative way.
GI-N2K aims to answer the question on how the education and vocational training in the domain of GI S&T can match with the actual job requirements in the job market.
GI-N2K builds upon the existing Geographic Information Science and Technology Body of Knowledge (GI S&T BoK) that was developed by the American University Consortium for Geographic Information Science , published in 2006 by the Association of American Geographers . The ‘BoK’ will be updated and brought into line with the new technological developments and the European perspective ( e.g. importance of INSPIRE in Europe).
The renewed BoK will apply an ontological approach and will take the form of a dynamic e-platform (wiki-based format) including tools to use, explore the BoK, to define curricula , training opportunities and courses and to define job profiles.
The GI-N2K project is built around a network of 31 partners ( 25 countries ) from the academic and non – academic sectors and partners from the GI industry (including Shell ) , major GI associations and individual experts. Learn more…
Everyone Told Me to Learn to Code. So I Did. Here’s What I Learned. - For the last few years I’ve heard several versions of the same maxim: “Everyone should learn to code.” So I did. I’m not an expert or anything. I’m certainly not quitting my job and moving to San Francisco.
The Opportunity Project expands access to opportunity for all Americans by putting data and digital tools in the hands of families, communities, and local leaders, to help them navigate information about the resources they need to thrive.

"WORLD CROPLAND Bill Rankin, 2009
The spread of agriculture over the last 300 years has been a dance of intensification and expansion. Nearly every area of the world has seen agriculture become more locally dense: agricultural land has become more and more agricultural, even in areas where it has been long established and where population density has increased as well. Since 1850, this steady-state of intensification has been punctuated by several episodes of rapid expansion into previously untapped areas: the Great Plains in the late nineteenth century, Argentina in the early twentieth century, and in last few decades, Brazil and central India. Decline is relatively rare, but it has happened, such as in the central Amazon, northern Patagonia, or the Appalachian Piedmont after World War II."
