Through original research conducted in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland, Places of Possibility shows how community land ownership can open up the political, social, environmental, and economic terrain to more socially just and sustainable possibilities than private ownership.
La géométrie et le droit foncier ont toujours été fortement liés. Depuis longtemps, l'arpenteur-géomètre est celui qui découpe l'espace aux fins du droit puisque l'opération géométrique d'arpenter est indissolublement liée à celle d'attribuer des droits. Et pour exercer paisiblement un droit de propriété, il faut en connaître exactement les limites parce que les droits d'un propriétaire s'arrêtent là où débutent ceux de son voisin.
This monograph examines the nature and significance of the re-emergence of private property in rapidly changing post-Mao China. In examining this issue, the study explores a key dichotomy in Chinese law, that is, 'public versus private', and examines the manner in which the Chinese define ownership. The study stresses the importance of lack of clarity in the boundaries between the public and the private in property rights.
The dramatic progress of smartphone technologies has ushered in a new era of mobile sensing, where traditional wearable on-body sensors are being rapidly superseded by various embedded sensors in our smartphones. For example, a typical smartphone today, has at the very least a GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, triaxial accelerometer, and gyroscope. Alongside, new accessories are emerging such as proximity, magnetometer, barometer, temperature, and pressure sensors.
The idea of human dominion over nature has become entrenched by the dominant rights-based interpretation of private property. Accordingly, nature is not attributed any inherent value and becomes merely the matter of a human property relationship. Earth Jurisprudence: Private Property and the Environment explores how an alternative conception of property might be instead grounded in the ecocentric concept of an Earth community.
This textbook is one of the first to explain the fundamentals and applications of remote sensing at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Topics include definitions and a brief history of payloads and platforms, data acquisition and specifications, image processing techniques, data integration and spatial modeling, and a range of applications covering terrestrial, atmospheric, oceanographic and planetary disciplines.
Mapping the Nation: Building Smart Government with GIS is a collection of GIS maps illustrating the many ways that federal government agencies rely on GIS analysis to build stronger, more resilient nations and help make the world a better place. Pulled from a broad range of departments, maps included in the book demonstrate how the technology can be used to evaluate, plan and respond to social, economic, and environmental concerns at local, regional, national, and global levels.
“Urban and peri-urban land markets in rapidly expanding West African cities operate within and across different coexisting tenure regimes and involve complex procedures to obtain or make land available for housing. Because a structured framework lacks for the analysis of such systems, this book proposes a systemic approach and applies it to Bamako and its surrounding areas.
This complete guide to boundary surveying provides landowners, land surveyors and students with the necessary foundation to understand boundary surveying techniques and the common legal issues that govern boundary establishment. Far from a simple engineering function, boundary establishment is often a difficult and delicate matter, with real monetary and legal ramifications if not accomplished accurately.
