gvSIG Projects: Graphical management of the CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) applications with gvSIG Online

The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is the agricultural policy of the European Union. It implements a system of agricultural subsidies and other programs. The number of grants processed in the Valencian Community is about 62,000 and it is equivalent to more than 140 million euros.

Regulation (EC) No 1593/2000 of July 17, 2000 obliges the creation of a Digital Graphic System for Agricultural Plots Identification. This is the origin of the SIGPAC, Agricultural Plots Geographic Information System, which allows geographically identify the parcels declared by farmers in any aid scheme related to the area.

Learn GIS with free online courses and open source

Geography is increasingly being recognised as a critically important element of data. Reality is expressed on the territory. Tools that allow us to manage the territory will allow us to manage the reality.

“A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. GIS applications are tools that allow users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze spatial information, edit data in maps, and present the results of all these operations” (Wikipedia)

Not all engineers use GIS, but it is a very useful tool for certain projects. Take free GIS courses online to build your skills and advance your career. Start learning today with gvSIG. Let’s go!

gvSIG Projects: gvSIG Suite in the Observatory of Studies on Coexistence and Citizen Security SDI

SIGAPRED is the project developed for the Government of Córdoba (Argentina) by the gvSIG Association together with the UTNVM (Technological University of Villa María) to provide the police and agencies that carry out criminal analysis of a technological solution, based on the gvSIG Suite. It allows to access to georeferenced data in real time and perform all type of analysis on them. The GIS requirements for crime analysis, specified by IACA (International Association of Crime Analysts), have also been taken into account for the implementation of the project. Continue reading

GvSIG en las X Jornadas de Gobiernos Locales. Los SIG en la Administración Local

La Asociación gvSIG participará en la mesa dedicada a los Sistemas de Información Geográfica en la Administración Local, dentro de las X Jornadas de Gobiernos Locales. La sesión dedicada a los SIG tendrá lugar el próximo viernes 20 de septiembre en Alicante.

Bajo el lema “Innovación pública y tecnología” están organizadas por la Concejalía de Nuevas Tecnologías, Innovación e Informática del Excmo. Ayuntamiento de Alicante, en colaboración con la Universidad Miguel Hernández y la Generalitat Valenciana.

Estás jornadas abordarán la situación actual de los gobiernos locales en España en el contexto actual de incertidumbre económica y de procesos de renovación institucional. Se debatirá sobre el nuevo futuro de los gobiernos locales, haciendo especial énfasis en temas de innovación pública, gobernanza electrónica, gobierno abierto, participación ciudadana y eficacia. Se reflexionará sobre las experiencias exitosas de la gestión pública en un entorno de gobiernos abiertos.

Desde la Asociación gvSIG aportaremos nuestra visión sobre la importancia de los SIG en la Administración Local, su cada vez mayor integración con otros sistemas informáticos y tecnologías, los motivos por los que todavía un gran número de ayuntamientos no utilizan SIG, las ventajas que aporta la apuesta por el software libre y hablaremos tanto de casos de éxito como de consejos para que sea exitosa la implantación de un SIG a nivel municipal.

Si queréis asistir, tenéis más información aquí.

Asistentes Inteligentes para las Infraestructuras de Datos Espaciales (IDEAIS)

Junto a otras entidades de investigación, academicas e institucionales de Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, España, Mexico, Perú, Portugal, Uruguay, la Asociación gvSIG participa en la nueva Red CYTED denominada IDEAIS, acrónimo de “Asistentes Inteligentes para las Infraestructuras de Datos Espaciales”.

El objetivo general de este Proyecto es la creación de un entorno iberoamericano de colaboración que desarrolle un sistema de asistentes inteligentes para facilitar el acceso a la Información Geográfica de las IDE.

Un proyecto con un alto contenido de I+D y que esperamos sirva para avanzar en ámbitos tan críticos como la aplicación de la geomática en la mejora de la gestión de emergencias ante desastres naturales. Aportando a estos objetivos desde el uso de tecnologías libres, accesibles para todos.

gvSIG projects: gvSIG Online in emergency prevention and management. Provincial Fire Consortium of Valencia

In organizations such as the Provincial Fire Consortium of Valencia (CPBV) it’s essential to work with geographic information. As a result of this need, the project for the implementation of a Spatial Data Infrastructure based on gvSIG Online was launched. An important part of the success of the project is based on collaboration between entities.

Beyond the technical and organizational characteristics of the project, in this post we want to highlight different cases of use of the platform. Examples of the implementation potential of the gvSIG Suite in emergency management. Continue reading

gvSIG Projects: Creation of a geographic database of improvised explosive devices

One of the projects in which the gvSIG suite has been used in the last year is the creation of a geographic database of improvised explosive devices for MINUSMA, the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali.

The so-called IED (improvised explosive device) are explosive devices that are normally detonated by remote control and one of its main objectives is the convoy attacks. The incidents related to IED, that caused the implementation of the project, had been increased in Mali considerably in recent years.

Before carrying out of the project, despite the use of GPS tracking, troops navigation was very complicated due to the absence of cartography and the lack of updated maps of potential threats of IED. Convoys didn’t know exactly when they accessed to a vulnerable area. Continue reading
