  2. 2. Cadastre Information System (FBSIC)___________________________________________________________________________October 20111. Who is Ferbritas S.A.?Ferbritas SA was founded in 1976. Over more than three decades of existence has undergonemany changes arising from processes of development and growth, which contributedsignificantly to the technical independence of the national railway, through the systematic andprogressive development of skills in several areas of specialty.Ferbritas is currently dedicated to the transport sector and in particular the railway (light,heavy, conventional and high speed).It is the only national company in the areas of consulting and engineering projects, which hascompetence in all Railway areas and specialties, which gives particular vocation for thecomprehensive management and integrated projects and undertakings of this nature andenables the provision of services related to transport planning, feasibility studies and projectdetail; expropriations; quality control materials, specialized construction management andsupervision.In this case, it should be noted that, Ferbritas S.A. as an experience of more than 20 years ofwork in this area, which results are known and recognized, involving more than three dozenemployees dedicated to: - Consolidation of the survey and registration data; - Management and achieving the full land acquisition processes.The specificity of these activities and the attributes of honesty, accuracy and professionalismthat allowed for over two decades of achievements, consolidate and optimize productionprocesses and methodologies, effective, and collect a solid experience, founded on theconfrontation with need to solve every day huge inefficiencies in the Portuguese rustic andurban register, necessary to achieve the objective to design, develop and implement anintegrated cadastre and property management. 2
  3. 3. Cadastre Information System (FBSIC)___________________________________________________________________________October 20112. Why a cadastre information system based on GIS (Geographic Information Systems) technology?The concepts of integration, complementarity and coordination are particularly importantespecially in the field of railway infrastructures.The requirements of the associated interventions are very technical in nature and involvemultiple specialties and technologies, and the final result is only guaranteed if the variouscomponents of this interwoven puzzle are compatible and properly joined together.Moreover, linear infrastructures such as roads, rail, energy, etc. are long lasting, and with longlife-cycles. Starting at the planning stage, these infrastructures can last for several decades,during which information is produced by multiple generations and organizations, running therisk of not being used at present, or future, or even get lost in time, if not properly organizedand maintained.The resulting information and knowledge have high economic value and significance fororganizations, making it vital to preserve. Although the immediate reason for the developmentof this information system stems from the need to provide a complete answer to the dynamiccontrol of the registration and real estate status of the national rail infrastructure, the resultsobtained are of relevance to individuals, companies and public administration.Land asset management is a cross cutting societal topic which is the basis for many economicand control activities. This results as very important since the opportunity and return oninvestment 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 designedto meet the needs of the rail sector and beyond. It also is applicable to the activities of entitiesor organizations to which it is important to ensure the dynamic control of cadastral and realestate property. 3
  4. 4. Cadastre Information System (FBSIC)___________________________________________________________________________October 20113. How important is the cadastre?Cadaster it’s strategic!It is a basic theme, indispensable, cross-cutting societies, relevant to: individuals, families,businesses, and local, regional and central institutions. Its absence and, or poor quality, have anegative economic translation of enormous significance for the citizen, to business and publicadministration, that had even the cause of relevant social conflicts.Have a reasonable cadastre is a major step towards improved social justice, economic and tax.Fulfill this purpose means to start the work by foundations from which to build a "building"multidisciplinary sustainable, efficient and effective.4. What is FBSIC?The FBSIC is a new tool to work with very unique and distinctive features for the purposes itserves. Among others: - Brings together a multitude of cases that occur every day in pre-defined formats and streamlined immediately to the user; - Integrates standardized and normalized information produced by third parties (Courts, Registries, Financial Services, Postcode, etc.). - Focuses on the users perspective; - Allows corporate sector and uses integrated and multidisciplinary; - Adds accuracy, efficiency and effectiveness of action; - Ensures the traceability of changes; - Exports to other information technology platforms, including SAP; - Provides a platform for information and knowledge is a valuable asset in itself; - Adds immediate value in a trend that grows exponentially over time, as the database is being enriched.FBSIC is supported by a scalable architecture, standards-based information technology andcommunication, and interoperability, ensuring a high sustainability of long-term application.Allows viewing and editing of geographic, alphanumeric and documental information. 4
  5. 5. Cadastre Information System (FBSIC)___________________________________________________________________________October 2011Has a modular character (seven modules) comprising: • Data Migration (geographic and alphanumeric), with some features for element validation; • Field (supporting the activities of gathering information); • Information Processing (import and validation of field data); • Central (which provides tools that enable: load and edit information on a geographical, alphanumeric and document basis, monitor the quality of the project phases and their transitions (workflow); print maps and formal documents, among other features); • Backoffice (to support the system administrator); • Approval (enables to perform a cycle of approval of the design data before sending to DUP); • Domain Management (enables to perform the management cycle of land parcels till their acquisition by the national authorities).

  7. 7. Cadastre Information System (FBSIC)___________________________________________________________________________October 2011The benefits are evident at the level of operational efficiency, with including tools that enableprocess integration and standardization of procedures, facilitate analysis and quality controland maximize performance in the acquisition, maintenance and management of registrationinformation and expropriation (expropriation projects). The implemented system achieveslevels of robustness, comprehensiveness, openness, scalability and reliability suitable for astructural platform.5. Starting pointThe terrain, the cadastral and real estate control.The processes of mobilization of land for infrastructures of public and private domain aredeveloped according to proper legal frameworks and systematically confronted with theimpoverished national situation as regards the cadastral identification and regularization,which leads to big inefficiencies, sometimes with very negative impact to the overalleffectiveness.
