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.

UAS Photogrammetry and Railway Mapping | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
Today’s photogrammetric software is able to create dense and precise digital surface models (DSMs), digital elevation models (DEMs) and orthoimages. But is the accuracy sufficient for highly demanding railway applications? A pilot project carried out in the Czech Republic demonstrates that unmanned aerial system (UAS) photogrammetry has great potential for collecting geodata meeting railway companies’ high standards of precision. Parallel computing based on 16 personal computers (PCs) was used to process the 11,000-plus images in a reasonable time span.

Teaching with Drones: The Challenges and the Opportunities, by Jared Ware, United States Military Academy 

Teaching with Drones: The Challenges and the Opportunities, by Jared Ware, United States Military Academy  | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
"There are several academic institutions embracing the proliferation of drone technology. What many are learning is that properly integrating drone technology into inquiry-based learning presents challenges as well as opportunities. One of the main drivers for the implementation of drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), into academic is the economy. In a 2013 report, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International forecasted that by 2025 the UAV industry would generate more than 100,000 new jobs and realize an economic impact of $82 billion. This forecast includes education on learning to fly UAVs and teaching everything from engineering better vehicle design to analyzing the science from sensor output. This requires educators to focus on a dedicated approach to developing a viable educational program."

"At the Dev Summit 2018, Omar Maher demonstrated how to predict accidents using AI. I have built an iOS application that people who drive can use to route around accidents that may happen that day, using the safest route available. The safest route has the lowest probability of an accident occurring on it.
 
Imagine that you could drive to your destination on a route that is the fastest, shortest and safest path available, knowing that the path will be clear of other people's or your own future accident, knowing that you will not become part of an accident study that month. "

See the Strange, Beautiful Landscapes Revealed by Lasers – | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
If you were to strip a forest of all its vegetation, what would you see? To find out, Washington state’s government is using airplanes equipped with LIDAR technology to scan the state’s heavily-forested ground. What’s being revealed beneath the trees is a spectacular and strange landscape of hidden geology. Old landslides, abandoned river channels, ancient lava flows, and the tracks of glaciers are suddenly visible in stark relief. Tracking the altitude and location of a plane with GPS while it scans the ground with LIDAR yields a highly precise digital elevation map of the Earth’s surface created out of the billions of laser pulses. By uncovering the debris from old landslides, LIDAR can show where future slides may occur.

Exploring the depths of the global earth observation system of systems: Big Earth Data: Vol 1, No 1-2

Abstract
This paper explores for the first time the contents, structure and relationships across institutions and disciplines of a global Big Earth Data cyber-infrastructure: the Global Earth Observation System of System (GEOSS). The analysis builds on 1.8 million metadata records harvested in GEOSS. Because this set includes almost all the major large data collections in GEOSS, the analysis represents more than 80% of all the data made available through this global system. We explore two major aspects: the collaborative networks and the thematic coverage in GEOSS. The first connects the contributing organisations through the more than 200,000 keywords used in the systems, and then explores who is citing whom, a proxy for of institutional thickness. The thematic coverage is analysed through neural network algorithms, first on the keywords, and then on the corpus of 653 million lemmatised lower case words built from the titles and abstracts of all 1.8 million metadata records. The findings not only give a good overview of the GEOSS data universe, but offer immediate priorities on how to increase the usability of GEOSS through improved data management, and the opportunity to augment the metadata with high level concept that synthetise well the contents of the data-set.
