2 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental HOW MAPSERVER IS ENHANCING ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT IN BRAZIL: A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SUCCESSFUL APPLICATIONS Rafael Medeiros Sperb Rodrigo Becke Cabral & Adriana Gomes Alves

3 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental BRAZIL: A COUNTRY OF CONTINENTAL PROPORTIONS Diversity of ecosystems and environments Aggressive pattern of environmental resources consumption Prospection of new economical alternatives

4 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental BRAZIL: A COUNTRY OF CONTINENTAL PROPORTIONS

5 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN AND PUBLIC AWARENESS Environmment in the political agenda National Policies for - Environment (6.938/81) - Coastal Zone Management (7.661/88) - Water Resources (9.433/97) and Many others

6 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental NATIONAL POLICIES Common Tools: - Monitoring programs - Information Systems establishment - Annual Situation Report

7 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental GOVERNMENT AGENCIES SCENARIO (for environmental matters) Federal, states and municipal levels of responsability and enforcement - Overlapping and gaps - Competition over financial resources - No communication or efforts sharing - No data systematization (few efforts) - Isolation

8 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental GOVERNMENT AGENCIES SCENARIO (for cartography) Brazilian Institute for Geography and Statistics - Responsible for the oficial Brazilian Cartography - Less than 10% of the Brazilian territory is available in digital format (1:50.000) - Analogic maps are mainly from the 50’s Brazilian Army - No maps available in digital format

9 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS There is no clear definition of what is important There is no consideration of data acquisition costs There is need for appropriate digital maps In the past financial resources were available, however misuse led to scarcity

10 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS How to cope with this scenario? There is no clear definition of what is important There is no consideration of data acquisition costs Design of EIS that with pre-established objectives aiming at: - Data integration (institutions too) - Systematization - Accessibility (distribution among agencies)

11 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS It might be obvious, but… - There is no culture for information systematization

12 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS How to cope with this scenario? There is need for appropriate digital maps It should not be an excuse for not developing an EIS: - Digitize (costs-benefit) - Allow data input even without the appropriate maps

13 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS It is not so obvious… - many agencies still use analogical maps in their daily operations

14 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS How to cope with this scenario? In the past financial resources were available, however misuse led to scarcity Reduce development costs: - Opensource - Federal Government has guidelines to foster such approach, but...

15 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS No comments…

16 Laboratório de Computação Aplicada à Gestão Ambiental APPLIED COMPUTATION LAB (G10) Facing this scenario with research and development of EIS to systemize environmental data and information: - Distributed acess - Opensource - Spatial support
