4th International FIG 3D Cadastre Workshop

Sunday, 2014-11-09
Tuesday, 2014-11-11
The increasing complexity of infrastructures and densely built-up areas requires a proper registration of the legal
status (private and public), which can only be provided to a limited extent by the existing 2D cadastral registrations.
The registration of the legal status in complex 3D situations will be investigated under the header of 3D Cadastres. 

The 4th International Workshop on 3D Cadastres addresses the following topics:
  • 3D Cadastre operational experiences (analysis, LADM based, learn from each other, discover gaps)
  • 3D Cadastre cost effective work flow for new/updated 3D parcels = 4D (part of whole chain:
    from planning/design/permit in 3D, to registration/use in 3D)
  • 3D Cadastre web-based dissemination (usability, man-machine interfaces, including mobile/AR)
  • Legal aspects for 3D Cadastre, best legal practises in various legislation systems
  • Focus on large cities, including developing countries

OGC Training at MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2014

Wednesday, 2014-05-07
Friday, 2014-05-09

We invite you to register for a 1 day OGC training course to be held May 8, 2014 during the MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2014 conference. The training will be in Portuguese and will be led by Luis Bermudez, director of the OGC Compliance Program. Attendees successfully completing the training will receive a certificate from OGC and MundoGeo and either one free membership for their employer or a discount coupon**.

This is an important training session because OGC standards have become increasingly important in a world where location and other types of geographic information are becoming integral parts of the information infrastructure. OGC is the main international organization responsible for open geospatial standards, and these standards make it possible for geospatial data and geoprocessing instructions to be communicated between platforms, systems and applications. Receiving training in OGC standards is important for both software developers and information system managers.

The MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2014 Conference and Trade Fair will be held at the Fri Caneca Convention Center, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
