Just completed Congress of Land Management and Surveying Held in Guatemala, the previous month, the presentations of exhibitors have been posted. They are available in a single page, although it is more practical to see them in Slideshare, from where they can be downloaded.
I suggest downloading them and saving them in a personal file, considering that in these times no one guarantees what is on the web. It is also a great material that can be used when giving training in the cartographic area.
Then ready the ones that are available, in an approximate order to the theme.
Approach to the Concept of Territorial Development
|Potentials for territorial development in rural regions. |
Experiences initiated by peasant organizations.
Dr. Cesar Eduardo Ordoñez,
Urban and Rural Challenges of Guatemala of the 21st Century
EOf the Land Administration in Guatemala
A good overview of what they are doing in Guatemala; Told by someone who was there from the beginning in this new stage.
Many challenges too ...
The cadastre as a tool for territorial development
Very good, showing how the Cadastre is evolving, and valuable the constant links it gives to promote the work of the Lincoln Institute or publications.
CTo share: the role of information for land administration
Diego Erba, Lincoln Institute for Land Management
Diego is masterful in this, I like his style of presentations, with a strong visual impact. Even if you were not at the event ... you missed almost everything.
Land administration in the Netherlands
This exhibition shows how the Cadastre works in the Netherlands. A context totally different from ours, but in which processes such as CNR in El Salvador have been inspired.
Developments in the world of land administration: domain models in land administration, cadastres in 3D and key registries
Interesting smoked, on the trends that the subject 3D takes in the Cadastre. A pity, that in our context is not a priority when the 2D is still a challenge, however it is useful to know it because the developed countries are going there. It is also an attraction for large cities, such as Mexico City, Bogotá, to give examples of our context where it can be urgent.
Use of cadastral information as a basis for land use plans
Municipal Cadastres - Opportunity or headaches for our cities?
Lincoln Institute for Land Management
Interesting, a valuable sample of the mapping of cadastral values; A challenge its updating.
The introduction of new technologies in the cadastral projects of the region
This is our presentation on the trends that are happening in the Central American context on the use of technologies for territorial management.
Crowdsourcing and Geographic Information
Javier Morales, ITC
This is in English, an interesting paper on the construction of data based on community collaboration. The most sustainable example of this is Open Map Sreet.
Although the topic seems astral, very well managed by Javier who knows that group because often comes to give courses or conferences. Very good reflection at the end, which I completed in the talk of Return to the capital.
Use and Consumption of Geoservices for the IDE
Both this and the following presentation are ideal to know the operation and trends that are having the OGC standards.
SINIT: a first step for FDI in Guatemala?
A classic this presentation, which shows how geoservices have been implemented in Guatemala. Interesting the welcome that gvSIG has had as an IDE client, plus the MapBender add-on; then GeoServer / Apache for managing WFS and MapServer for WMS / WCS.
A great job, the one from SEGEPLAN and the University of San Carlos, In keeping this issue alive in the region.
