The topics of the Congress of Guatemala Surveying

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.

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.

CPowerpoint presentationsTo 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.

Powerpoint presentationsLand administration in the Netherlands

Martin Wubber, Kadaster

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.

Powerpoint presentationsDevelopments in the world of land administration: domain models in land administration, cadastres in 3D and key registries

Martin Wubbe, Kadaster

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.

Powerpoint presentationsUse of cadastral information as a basis for land use plans

Eddy Diaz, Cadastral Information Registry

Powerpoint presentationsMunicipal Cadastres - Opportunity or headaches for our cities?

Golgi Álvarez, Geofumadas

This is our presentation on the trends that are happening in the Central American context on the use of technologies for territorial management.

Powerpoint presentationsCrowdsourcing 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.

Powerpoint presentationsUse and Consumption of Geoservices for the IDE

Javier Morales, ITC

Both this and the following presentation are ideal to know the operation and trends that are having the OGC standards.

Powerpoint presentationsSINIT: 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.
