"The implementation of technologies in the cadastre"


after several months in the diploma of systematization is already as draft for printing my third publication, although my first in the field of technology.

"The implementation of technologies in the municipal cadastre"

For this, a systematization of the experience of a municipality in Honduras was carried out with an almost natural but sustainable process that takes 27 years. The content of the book is based on three moments:

The before, which is in itself the problem that seeks to implement its cadastre at an empirical level and with serious difficulties; In this chapter we analyze the context of the systematized experience, as well as the limitations and implications of geomatics technologies

The during, which is the second chapter of the document that focuses on substantiating the importance of technical sustainability so that the adoption of technologies, in this case geomatic is sustainable

The after, which is a proposal of how a municipality could implement its cadastre under modern technologies but in less time and from a sustainable perspective. For this, the conjunctural factors that are happening at the country level of the systematized experience are analyzed, the link with the 2014 cadastre, viable alternatives and finally practical guides are presented for the choice of CAD - GIS tools, both commercial and free license under a multipurpose and modular scaling environment.

I hope to talk about it later, here I leave the index
