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.

This is the first time a tanker has crossed the Arctic in winter unassisted | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Container ships using the Northern Sea Route across the top of the world can cut the length of voyages by 40% compared with travelling via the Suez Canal, the Arctic Council says.

However, while in summer the Northern Sea Route is more accessible, in winter it is treacherous and can only be kept open with the assistance of specialist icebreaker ships.

Know all about LiDAR

Know all about LiDAR | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
LiDAR is also known as Light Detection and Ranging. LiDAR technology uses light sensors to measure the distance between the sensor and the target object. LiDAR is a remote sensing method that uses laser to measure the elevation like the ground, forest, and buildings.

It uses the ultraviolet, visible, or near-infrared source to sense objects. Light energy emitted by LiDAR system is known as Pulse and light reflected from the ground/object is known as Return.

Would self-driving cars lead to the demise of the existing automobile industry? | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Autonomous vehicles have not only taken the entire automobile industry by a storm but also sown the seeds for the next big revolution that will drastically alter the modus operandi of the industry, diversify its engagements and shape new contours. The popularization of autonomous cars will be a seismic event and, arguably, more tremendous in scale and scope than the launching of Ford Model T in the last century, which commercialized cars and triggered the era of private car ownership.

Digitization of geospatial data, easy accessibility has taken the industry to ‘the masses’

Digitization of geospatial data, easy accessibility has taken the industry to ‘the masses’ | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The geospatial industry is experiencing more of an accelerating evolution as we react and respond to new and emerging technologies and the different demands and opportunities these bring.  With the emergence of technologies that have the potential to transform our world and the way we live and do business, I feel we are on the verge of something special. It will be a data-driven world where place is the common factor, which is going to be core to getting value from connected data. Location is one of the pillars of everything — everything happens somewhere. It is a critical ‘golden thread’ allowing many different datasets concerning a single location to be combined and create more value. In times to come, global citizens will benefit in many ways from these technology transformations

Surveying soil from the sky: Can satellites predict droughts and floods?

Surveying soil from the sky: Can satellites predict droughts and floods? | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
At any one time, over two thousand human-made satellites are circling our planet. They help us communicate, locate, observe, and gather data. As agricultural scientists try to predict crop conditions in these climate-complex times, they are increasingly turning to “remote sensing” – gathering information from a distance. In particular, satellites have been used to measure soil moisture in order to predict and prepare for flood, droughts and other risks.

UAVs: The Deceptive Rise to Disruption in the Geospatial Industry | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The period where exponential growth remains unnoticed following the inception of innovation is classified as ‘deception’. The year 1849 inaugurated the birth of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or ‘drone’), producing a deceptive impact on the industry. Today, the use of consumer UAVs for data acquisition is quickly approaching its zenith, allowing for a broader scale of applications.

Drawing in QGIS with better accuracy than AutoCAD –

Drawing in QGIS with better accuracy than AutoCAD – | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The title of this article is a challenge, if you have used Autodesk programs I suppose you could think “it’s an advertising strategy”,”an exaggeration”, I invite you to continue reading and you will see how QGIS being free software fulfills the challenge of giving us an intuitive and professional interface to draw accurately in 2D similar to Autodesk.

If you want to draw as you do in Autodesk, if you are going to make layouts considering angles and distances, or if you have set out to make a cadastre with a free GIS, you have to see this!
To meet the objectives of this article we will focus on a single Plugin, using very little of QGIS’s own drawing tools.

How to generate research impact from Twitter and LinkedIn

How to generate research impact from Twitter and LinkedIn | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

More and more researchers are turning to social media as a way of getting their research to a wider audience. But can social media really drive non-academic research impact? In this post, I will revisit the "Twitter tips" I first wrote six years ago, and show you how I now generate impact from both Twitter and LinkedIn. At the end of the post, I'll give you a sneak preview of the new version of my chapter on social media for research impact, now called "Driving impact online", which will appear later this year in the second edition of The Research Impact Handbook.

Laser Scanner in a Backpack

Laser Scanner in a Backpack | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Laser scanning systems have gone through a major evolution in the past decade. After the initial breakthrough of airborne laser scanners (ALS), other types of laser scanning systems have emerged, most notably terrestrial laser scanners (TLS) and mobile laser scanners (MLS). While these three main types of Lidar systems together serve a large number of applications, none of them are optimised for fast and flexible scanning in challenging locations, rugged terrain and complicated urban structures. Personal laser scanners (PLS) fill this void and are now evolving towards compact, agile and flexible solutions for mapping complex environments. This article explains the new Akhka R2 PLS and illustrates its use in various applications.

Whether you’re trying to produce cut/fill maps for an earthworks project, measure the compaction rate on a landfill, inspect assets on a mine site or do any other job you can use drones and photogrammetry for, collecting quality drone data is just as important as your UAV selection and ground control.

Poorly captured drone imagery can mean having to go back on site to do it all over again – or worse, making operational/safety decisions based on bad data and having to pay the price down the track.
