GIS applied to Municipality Management: Module 14 ‘Image georeferencing’

The video of the fourteenth module is now available, in which we will show how to georeference an image.

Sometimes the technicians of a city council have images that are not georeferenced. They also can have an old map on paper, the data of which are needed to perform some analysis on their desktop application, such as delimiting the municipality in detail for example. That map on paper could be scanned so that they would have an image on their hard disk.

These images don’t have coordinates, so if they insert them in a View they would be in the coordinates ‘0,0’, and they would not be overlapped with the georeferenced cartography.

GIS applied to Municipality Management: Module 11 ‘Reprojecting vector layers’

The video of the eleventh module is now available, in which we will show how to reproject vector layers.

Sometimes municipalities need external geographic information to work, for example cartography published by another administration, such as regional or national. That cartography can be in a different system than technicians usually work on in the municipality. If we don’t take the reference systems into account, both cartographies would not be overlapped correctly.

The municipality technicians can also use old cartography, which is in an obsolete reference system, and they need to have it in an updated reference system. For this, it will be necessary to reproject that cartography.

GIS applied to Municipality Management: Module 10 ‘How to convert cartography from CAD to GIS’

The video of the tenth module is now available, in which we will show how to load and manage cartography in CAD format on gvSIG.

Many municipalities have their geographic information in CAD format, and in many cases there’s an only file for the whole municipality that contains all type of information, such as power lines, parcels, drinking water system, sewage system…, each one in a different layer.

It sometimes makes it difficult to manage, even we have to divide the municipality into sheets to manage that information, where we lose information of our municipality as a group. In that case, to make queries, calculations…, we would have to open the different files.
