Geographic Information System using Manifold GIS

Manual manifold gisThis is one of those products that it is a pleasure to have promoted, and that in the spirit for which they were built now, they are made available to the community. It is a manual that explains how to implement a municipal Geographic Information System using Manifold GIS.

The edited versions of these products were built within the framework of a Program to strengthen municipalities, whose legacy in terms of systematization we hope to disseminate in the hope that it may be useful for other countries. To the extent that we make these efforts public, knowledge is democratized and improved through the collaboration of learning communities that now represent compartmental spaces on the Internet.

The structure of the document includes:

Chapter 1

Manual manifold gisHere is how the hierarchy of layers and components in Manifold GIS is constructed, as well as the particularities of a municipal utility project as an example. It also introduces the issue of assigning projection to the data and the content is divided into sections:

  • Structure of the GIS in Manifold
  • The municipal GIS
  • Projection of components

Chapter 2

Manual manifold gisThis section shows the most important aspects of data construction and editing, from vector data import to dataframe construction. Just let it out now that I realize, creating themed templating type templates.

  • Construction of data
  • Building and editing objects in drawing
  • Management of tables and tables
  • Construction of maps

Chapter 3

Here is a basic way to show the Manifold operation logic in data analysis and creation of new results from queries:

  • Analysis of data
  • Spatial analysis
  • Thematic
  • Queries

Manual manifold gisChapter 4

This last step shows what you can do with Manifold when creating output layouts. While this segment is short leaving out the creation of OGC publishing services, it is assumed that up to now is the basic aspect of the basic user GIS and is considered to be thereafter already part of an IDE topic. The parts of this last chapter are:

  • Publication in Manifold
  • Save visas to components
  • Create layouts
  • Publish layout

At the end as an attachment is added an attribute book that summarizes the characteristics of the layers used in the example. While

It is returned to the community, to be used as an example of systematization products that by the way are necessary in our context, not only its construction but its visibility and integration to integral processes of knowledge management. He has credits that are indicated in a respective way, so that whoever wants to use it can quote the source indicated there. Also on the back cover is the context within which this manual is, because it is part of a compendium of 18 documents that make up three series: Technical, Administrative and Technological, which uniform the style and size that makes this document that could contain More pages are kept in an 54 only format.

As an example I show you a project in South America, with whom I shared the document a few days ago and that is taking advantage of the usefulness of this manual instrument to make adjustments in its own need. Always using Manifold GIS.
