urbiGis Data Types

urbiGIS is a platform that allows us to work with two types of data

1. Data Sets

These are used to create, edit and share geospatial information (Data Sets) through any account registered with urbiGIS. In addition, the service provides the following services:

  1. Free collaboration between registered Accesses allowing the exchange of information and interaction with the data included in urbiGIS.
  2. Consultation of spatial data included through the following modules:
    • Territories: facilitates the search for territorial areas over which some type of authority is exercised.
    • Maps and Geo – Reports : allows you to search web services for maps and structured data.
    • Addresses: through Location Services you can consult locations, locate real estate and geolocate urban objects.
    • Elements: it allows consulting information from the urbiGIS database (data sets, instruments, entities, relationships and documents)
  3. Publication of spatial data to make it available to third parties.

It is a collaborative environment in which an Account publishes the geospatial information it produces (cartography, infrastructure, public facilities, etc.). From that moment on, depending on the visibility assigned to the data, they can be viewed, downloaded and edited. There is no other restriction than that of being authorized by the Account holder of the data. This is the reason why this Service is considered as a non-operations or non-transactional collaboration model

2. Inventories

It serves to manage spatial information associated with the territory on which an Account has an attribution of any nature (competence, legal, etc.). It is a powerful database made up of administrative files and documents that affect the territory. Here are some examples of Urban Inventories included in urbiGIS:

  1. Urban and territorial planning: urban and territorial planning plans

  2. Property rights: real rights, legal business of urban transformation, expropriation files, etc.

  3. Urban objects: urbanization projects, building projects, technical infrastructure projects, etc.

  4. Obligations: Administrative concessions, real estate duties (conservation, building, etc.)

  5. Real Estate Assets: Property Portfolio Management

It is a controlled collaborative environment that is based on rules of content, format and quality of the data that is shared. The purpose is to prevent abnormal behaviors such as duplications, inconsistencies and alterations of the integrity of the database.

Unlike the previous Service, the data included in the Urban Inventories is updated from a transactional model, that is, based on geo-transactions.
