UNIGIS Abschlussarbeiten

Der krönende Abschluss eines UNIGIS MSc Studiums ist sicherlich die Master Thesis. Mit ihr belegen unsere MSc-AbsolventInnen, dass sie den akademischen Grad "Master of Science (Geographical Information Science & Systems)" zu Recht führen.  Im UNIGIS professional Studiengang muss keine Abschlussarbeit verfasst werden. Dennoch nehmen einige Studierende die Möglichkeit war, ein Geoinformatikprojekt durchzuführen und entsprechend zu dokumentieren.

Sie sind auf der Suche nach aktueller Literatur zu Geoinformatik-Themen?
Hier finden sie die mitunter preisgekrönten Abschlussarbeiten unserer AbsolventInnen!

The influence of cultural and institutional factors on cadastre-based GIS diffusion projects in emerging countries

The management of land resources is amongst the core responsibilities of national and local governments. Modern land administration systems (LAS) integrate numerous government administrations to promote sustainable land development usually based on a common and accurate digital real estate cadastre. In developing economies such cadastral data is often only now being introduced and target administrations are subject to GIS diffusion projects to equip them with the necessary tools and expertise to make use of the generated cadastral data. Such project, however, often fail to introduce sustainable GIS solutions and it has been suggested that this may be due to a lack of consideration of cultural and institutional factors in the project and software design. This thesis evaluates these suggestions in the context of a pilot project in Sumgait, Azerbaijan. The political, cultural and institutional project environment is analysed reviewing the current states of the recent land reform, the institutional setups and the culturally engrained prevalence of corruption. The suitability of target administrations in Sumgait is analysed in terms of their technical and institutional conditions as well as their political will and relevance. The state-controlled city department for architecture and the tax department of the self-governing municipality were chosen as project partners and had their internal work processes analysed in depth. Two GIS solutions (AzArchitect & AzFinance) were developed following the results of the institutional requirements analysis. These solutions are designed to utilize digital cadastral data of the state real estate office to improve the departments´ performances and address prevailing issues in the interdepartmental information exchange that is currently preventing efficient land management in Sumgait. The results suggest that the critical cultural and institutional factors were correctly identified and found adequate consideration in the software design. The thesis consequently concludes that such factors ought to be examined closely in similar projects as their dismissal may lead to rejection of the solutions in the mid to long term.
