Geo-Enabling local communities in Brazil

A session at 45th Annual Society of Cartographers Summer School

  • Steven Eglington

Wednesday 9th September, 2009

2:20pm to 2:20pm (GMT)

In this paper, I will outline the techniques and strategy for horse-back survey techniques, how I devised a method to show the covert planned open-cast mining activities, and my tutoring of ESRI GIS at Iracambi in the Rainforest.
I will also reflect on major recent changes in GIS such as the GeoWeb and how these have been leveraged by Iracambi.

Maps and GIS are used at Iracambi to identify the critical areas for conservation and the environmental degradation hot spots (erosion, deforestation), to train potential users in how to use this material, and to provide local planning agencies with the technical assistance that will allow them to make rational decisions on conservation management and planning.
