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.

Supporting response to California wildfires with open data

Supporting response to California wildfires with open data | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The wildfires devastating California are some of the worst in the state’s history. In Northern California, the fire has burned more than 120,000 acres, displaced thousands of residents and resulted in at least 21 deaths.
State and federal agencies as well as hundreds of emergency personnel and firefighters are working to contain the fire and provide humanitarian assistance to local residents. To support those efforts, DigitalGlobe is sharing imagery and critical data through our Open Data Program. Currently, DigitalGlobe is making satellite imagery for Santa Rosa, California, openly available and we could expand the area based on the fire’s activity.

An assessment of the global impact of 21st century land use change on soil erosion

An assessment of the global impact of 21st century land use change on soil erosion | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Human activity and related land use change are the primary cause of accelerated soil erosion, which has substantial implications for nutrient and carbon cycling, land productivity and in turn, worldwide socio-economic conditions. Here we present an unprecedentedly high resolution (250 × 250 m) global potential soil erosion model, using a combination of remote sensing, GIS modelling and census data. We challenge the previous annual soil erosion reference values as our estimate, of 35.9 Pg yr−1 of soil eroded in 2012, is at least two times lower. Moreover, we estimate the spatial and temporal effects of land use change between 2001 and 2012 and the potential offset of the global application of conservation practices. Our findings indicate a potential overall increase in global soil erosion driven by cropland expansion. The greatest increases are predicted to occur in Sub-Saharan Africa, South America and Southeast Asia. The least developed economies have been found to experience the highest estimates of soil erosion rates.

O big brother do mar numa sala do Alfeite | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Numa sala escura, de persianas corridas, na Base Naval do Alfeite, a Marinha portuguesa controla 5,8 milhões de km2. É ali que funciona o centro de coordenação de busca e salvamento marítimo de Lisboa (conhecido pela sigla inglesa, MRCC), onde cinco militares e um agente da Polícia Marítima analisam em permanência o mar. É a partir dali que um paquete consegue comunicar com os serviços de emergência em terra (do INEM) e é dali que se activa uma evacuação, caso seja necessária; ou que se comunica com os submarinos em missão e se dá apoio aos navios portugueses quando estes estão envolvidos em missões de recolha de emigrantes. E é ali também que, através do COMAR (Centro de Operações Marítimas), acompanham acções de combate ao tráfico de droga, lideradas pela Polícia Judiciária (PJ) com o apoio da Marinha e da Força Aérea.

Procesos web geoespaciales: dificultades y alternativas en el caso del visor SACOSTA

Procesos web geoespaciales: dificultades y alternativas en el caso del visor SACOSTA | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
ICTS SOCIB (Coastal Ocean Observing and Forecasting System located in the Balearic Islands) provides a web-based map viewer which displays cartographic data related to the environmental sensitivity of the coastline of the Balearic Islands (SACOSTA). The viewer is designed as a decision-making tool to support responses at the coast to potential oil spills in the sea. SACOSTA is built using using OpenGeo Suite technologies: spatial data stored in a PostGIS database, WMS layers served by GeoServer, viewer and composition of the layers using GeoExplorer. The viewer has a new functionality to analyse the environmental sensitivity of a given region. We present different options evaluated to achieve the following requirement: given a region represented by a polygon, what is the length of the coastline upon its geomorphological classification? On the one hand, we will explain how GeoServer WPS services could be used, a solution that would follow OGC standards. On the other hand, we introduce an ad hoc development using Flask, microframework for Python. This web application makes queries directly to the PostGIS database to extract aggregated information and returns it in JSON format. Finally, we present how this service has been integrated into GeoExplorer, where a new drawing and dragging tool has been added. The viewer use the new web service and displays some plots using d3.js library. Through this plots, the application allows to filter features of the layer depending on their type of coast. The application also includes a report generator of the environmental sensitivity of the selected region ​

21st Century Landscapes – Planet Stories

21st Century Landscapes – Planet Stories | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
The period of time during which human activities have had an environmental impact on the Earth regarded as constituting a distinct geological age. (Merriam Webster)
Over the course of the 20th Century, humans refashioned much of the surface of the Earth. Mass migration from the countryside to urban factories and storefronts created megacities like Jakarta, Shanghai, Nairobi, New York, and São Paulo. Coal and oil fields expanded to meet the growing need for energy. Forests were cut for lumber while mechanized agriculture spread across the plains of North America and the Asian steppes. Railroads, and then highways, linked these natural resources to consumers.

Research Reveals Scope of Open Geospatial Data Across Europe

Research Reveals Scope of Open Geospatial Data Across Europe | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Open data is available from the majority of European National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registry Authorities (NMCAs), a new survey has found. Research by the Open European Location Services (ELS) Project reveals that 98% of respondents provide at least some of their data free of charge. Of these, 37% make all their data available under an open licence. 

Whilst open data models vary, more than 85% provide view and search services, 72% enable downloads and 67% allow its re-use in products. Users include public authorities, public services, research and education as well as commercial companies.

This survey provides a snapshot of the scope of open data from official national sources across geographical Europe, said Dominik Kopczewski, policy development manager at international not-for-profit organisation, EuroGeographics which is co-ordinating the Open ELS Project.

WFS 3.0 — Get Excited? Yes! – Chris Holmes

WFS 3.0 — Get Excited? Yes! – Chris Holmes | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Well, get excited if you’re deep in to geospatial and open standards — I’m pretty sure a majority of the world would find this booooring.
But that’s ok. In this post I want to bring attention to the great work being done on WFS 3.0 specification from the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). The first awesome thing you’ll notice is that link goes to a GitHub repo, where the specification is being actively worked on, and anyone can join in and contribute. In general the core standard so far gets a whole lot right, and I believe has potential to bring much more interoperability to the geospatial world. Though I’ve been pretty vocally negative on WFS for a number of years I think the core team has made a really clean break and is embracing many of the right principles to build a really impactful specification.
