The goal of the Kerala Land Information System is to generate digital land
records in a GIS that is available over the web for verification by stakeholders.
An immediate objective was to survey 27,000 hectares to be assigned to tribal
interests and subsequently resurvey 31 villages in the Thiruvananthapuram
district of India. Aerial photometry was used to prepare the survey records.
The system required cost-effective technologies to provide real-time access
to accurate land parcel data and achieve data uniformity for all users. Bentley
Cadastre and Oracle’s database technology were customized to meet the project’s
requirements, which incorporated unique departmental rules for land records.
Bentley Geo Web Publisher was used to publish the cadastre information. Now the
entire lifecycle of a cadastral transaction is managed online.
Idaho Transportation Department
SH- 21, Wildlife Collision Avoidance
Boise, Idaho, United States
The SH- 21 corridor near Boise, Idaho, was experiencing an increasing frequency
of vehicles colliding with wildlife. The Idaho Transportation Department
convened an ad hoc working group to identify how to protect people and
wildlife. The group determined that a wildlife bridge-underpass was the best
way to reduce wildlife mortality and improve public safety and welfare.
Using MicroStation and InRoads allowed the Idaho Transportation Department
to gather and process survey data for topography and design a vertical
alignment that would require the minimum amount of cut-and-fill and
shoring. With funding from the U.S. federal stimulus program as well as
several nongovernment organizations, the Idaho Transportation Department
constructed a fenced wildlife crossing structure.
