Cadastre Information System for Rail in Portugal

  1. 1. Cadastre Information System For Rail In Portugal Page 1 of 6Cadastre Information System For Rail In Portugal Written by Fernando Gil and Luís Mata Thursday, 16 June 2011 12:18 The concepts of integration, complementarity and coordination are particularly important especially in the field of railway infrastructures. The requirements of the associated interventions are very technical in nature and involve multiple specialties and technologies, and the final result is only guaranteed if the various components of this interwoven puzzle are compatible and properly joined together. Introduction Ferbritas SA was founded in 1976. Over more than three decades of existence has undergone manychanges arising from processes of development and growth, which contributed significantly to the technical independence of the nationalrailway, through the systematic and progressive development of skills in several areas of specialty. Ferbritas is currently dedicated to thetransport sector and in particular the railway (light, heavy, conventional and high speed). It is the onlyFig. 1 - Central Module Overviewnational company in the areas of consulting and engineering projects, which has competence in all Railway areas and specialties, whichgives particular vocation for the comprehensive management and integrated projects and undertakings of this nature and enables theprovision of services related to transport planning, feasibility studies and project detail; expropriations; quality control materials,specialized management and supervision of construction works.The concepts of integration, complementarity and coordination are particularly important especially in the field of railway infrastructures.The requirements of the associated interventions are very technical in nature and involve multiple specialties and technologies, and thefinal result is only guaranteed if the various components of this interwoven puzzle are compatible and properly joined together.

Starting at the planning stage,these infrastructures can last for several decades, during which information is produced by multiple generations and organizations, runningthe risk of not being used at present, or future, or even get lost in time, if not properly organized and maintained. The resulting informationand knowledge have high economic value and significance for organizations, making it vital to preserve.http://www.vector1media.com/article/features/20982-cadastre-information-system-for... 01-07-2011
  3. 3. Cadastre Information System For Rail In Portugal Page 3 of 6Fig. 3 - FBSIC Main ModulesAlthough the immediate reason for the development of this information system stems from the need to provide a complete answer to thedynamic control of the registration and real estate status of the national rail infrastructure, the results obtained are of relevance toindividuals, companies and public administration.Land asset management is a cross cutting societal topic which is the basis for many economic and control activities. This results as veryimportant since the opportunity and return on investment on, for instances, ownership transfers, land use and taxation cannot be based oninadequate or wrong information.For these reasons, from the beginning, the Cadastre Information System (FBSIC) was designed to meet the needs of the rail sector andbeyond. It also is applicable to the activities of entities or organizations to which it is important to ensure the dynamic control of cadastraland real estate property. The terrain, the cadastral and real estate control.ProcessesThe processes of mobilization of land for infrastructures of public and private domain are developed according to proper legal frameworksand systematically confronted with the impoverished national situation as regards the cadastral identification and regularization, whichleads to big inefficiencies, sometimes with very negative impact to the overall effectiveness.Fig. 4 - Public Domain Management Module (Initial Page)The process started with collecting and processing information from the “foundations” and continues building up the collection of valuableinformation that the company already has that got; seeking its immediate availability to the customer and all specialties of internal needsand also permits its use for other purposes such as asset appreciation. Adopt a geographic information technology and develop the requiredsoftware, properly integrated with other information subsystems of the organization, focused on the production and business management.First we proceed to update the design of the technical and business processes, then the objectives were detailed and the technologicalplatform selected, which were the preconditions to start the project. From this point, the implementation process followed a standarddesign with the establishment of requirements, functional analysis, application design and related developments.http://www.vector1media.com/article/features/20982-cadastre-information-system-for... 01-07-2011

In the next stage, we proceed with theimplementation of the Cadastre Information System (FBSIC). The project team was designed to adequately cover the needs of businessand is therefore composed of elements from the functional units that have the "know-how” of the business, coordinated by the GIS teamand supported by an information systems team, with the direct involvement of the first level of management. Another condition, that isalso essential to promoting the integration of internal and external resources, is performing the work at the premises of Ferbritas.Fig. 5 - Public Domain Management Module (Querying a Land Parcel)Cadastre Information System (FBSIC) is a first step of a business strategy that has multiple purposes, particularly related to increasedvalue for customers and for the reference shareholder, with the efficiency of services, information integrity, the generation and the"democratization" of knowledge in a timeless framework.The SIC is used permanently for three areas of business and has allowed to formulate new innovative services, and respond to the needsexpressed by clients. They are metrics established that have confirmed the efficiency gains and significant rigor established in pilotprojects developed in the testing phase and will be confirmed after the entry into production at cruising speed.http://www.vector1media.com/article/features/20982-cadastre-information-system-for... 01-07-2011
  5. 5. Cadastre Information System For Rail In Portugal Page 5 of 6Benefits of the projectThe FBSIC is supported by a scalable architecture, standards-based information technology and communication, and interoperability,ensuring a high sustainability of long-term application. Allows viewing and editing of geographic and alphanumeric information ofexpropriation projects. Has a modular character, comprising:● Data Migration Module (geographic and alphanumeric), with some features for elementvalidation;● Field Module (supporting the activities of gathering information);● Information Processing Module (import and validation of field data);● Central Module (which provides tools that enable: load and edit information on ageographical, alphanumeric and document basis, monitor the quality of the project phasesand their transitions (workflow); print maps and formal documents, among other features);● Backoffice Module to support the system administrator;● Approval Module (enables to perform a cycle of approval of the design data before sending toDUP);● Public Domain Management Module (enables to perform the management cycle of landparcels till their acquisition by the national authorities);The benefits are evident at the level of operational efficiency, with including tools that enable process integration and standardization ofprocedures, facilitate analysis and quality control and maximize performance in the acquisition, maintenance and management ofregistration information and expropriation (expropriation projects). The implemented system achieves levels of robustness,comprehensiveness, openness, scalability and reliability suitable for a structural platform.ResultsFBSIC tools, in conjunction with other applications for Registration and Expropriation Projects, allow managing the entire life-cycle ofprojects of expropriation and cadastre, including support to field activities with the integration of information collected in the field, thedevelopment of multi-criteria analysis information and monitoring of projects in the exploration stage.The integrative nature of the architecture allows Ferbritas fit current needs, providing the possibility of scaling the platform to meet futureservices. The application has increased the rigor and productivity of the cadastre and expropriation process, and represents to the companya solution to information management of Cadastre and Expropriation Projects, including all other additional background information.-----------------------------------------------------------------------Fernando Gil and Luís Mata - Ferbritas, S.A., Lisbon, Portugale-mail: fgil@ferbritas.pt 9 1 8 2 retweet 36 Share Comments (0) Add New Search RSS Write comment Your Contact Details: Name: Email: do not notify Website: Comment: Title: Message:http://www.vector1media.com/article/features/20982-cadastre-information-system-for... 01-07-2011
