Towards Cadastral Intelligence?

Extracting Visible Boundaries from UAV Data through Image Analysis and Machine Learning
The inability to access formal land registration systems fosters insecure land tenure and conflicts, especially in developing countries. This calls for low-cost and scalable mapping solutions aligning with fit-for-purpose land administration. The work presented in this article supports the UAV-based mapping of land tenure inspired by state-of-the-art approaches from remote sensing, geoinformatics and computer vision. The guiding question is how to develop an automated approach that promotes the paradigm shift towards cadastral intelligence which integrates human-based expert knowledge with automatically generated machine-based knowledge. Cadastral mapping contributes to the creation of formal systems for registering and safeguarding land rights. According to... (read more)

Recent Advances in Geodata Acquisition Technologies

No Information without Data
Today’s geodata acquisition technologies combine microprocessors, computer power, solid state drives, complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) sensors, miniaturisation and many more developments. But demand is just as important as supply, and demand is rapidly increasing in our changing world. Read on for details of recent advances in geodata acquisition technologies. In today's world, we are seeing metropolises cluster to form megalopolises, climate change threatens humans, land and livestock in low-lying areas such as river deltas and valleys, and massively populated areas are prone to earthquakes and landslides. All of these factors are increasing the demand for geodata acquisition. This article starts with total stations, continues... (read more)

Spatial Cave Mapping in Bulgaria

Modern Methods and Devices
Caves are natural underground spaces formed and shaped over millions of years. Usually part of bigger caverns, they give a first-hand view of water, biology, oil and other subsurface distributions as well as a glimpse of the past when they perhaps offered shelter or sanctuary. Therefore, when exploring a cave, it is useful to not only collect geometric information such as gallery dimensions and directions but also to take photographs and notes of any specific features of interest. Since safe storage, easy management and proper representation of spatial data can be difficult using traditional methods, these are all key requirements... (read more)
