Brazil: Use of GIS improves monitoring and reduce
crime in the State of Amazonas
With over 1.5 million km2 and 3.5 million inhabitants, the State of
Amazonas is the largest of the 27 states in Brazil and the second most
populous in the Northern Region.
The Challenge: Need for faster police response to incidents and
to improve the Integrated Public Safety System (SISP).
The Solution: Investment of US$ 150 million to map major cities,

hardware acquisition (monitoring cameras and GPS navigator).
10% Reduction in police incidents and 13% reduction in
homicides in May 2012 in comparison with May 2011, due to the
benefits of "crime map" in the State.

Brazil: Use of Geospatial Technology to improve
production of sugarcane
CTC – The Sugarcane Technology Center, located in Piracicaba, in the state of São Paulo,
operates throughout the whole production chain of sugarcane, alcohol, sugar and
bioenergy, researching and developing added value products to the various phases of the
production process. CTC shareholders represent 60% of grinding sugarcane in the
central-southern area in Brazil, a region in which the culture of sugar cane occupies
approximately 8.3 million hectares.
The Challenge: To monitor production areas of sugar cane and
to identify problems and their causes; take management
decisions for solving these problems.
The Solution: Mapping and monitoring of production areas of
sugar cane, using satellite images, maps and tables. Create
thematic maps and do field surveys to identify the causes of
problems, and to monitor the result of the actions taken.
Benefits: Early diagnosis of occurrences. Greater control in the area . Planning and
rationalization the application of agrochemicals. Reduce costs and environmental impacts.
More uniform crop. Productivity,. Anticipation and confirmation of decision making to reform
the land.
