Track: Urban and Regional Planning
Authors: Leandro Souza
Rio’s Strategic Plan defines the need of new schools by 2016. Considering its territorial dimension, Instituto Pereira Passos defined where and how many schools should be built to meet this goal. The city was divided in areas, using Spatial Analyst tool on Census data to define the demand. A web application based in ArcGIS Server was developed to update data from several sources. This work shows that integrating information among municipal departments is essential for efficient public policies.
