Potentiality of support technologies for opinion and decision-making as a tool for insertion of the geologist in territorial planning

Pedro Benedito Casagrande, Ana Clara Mourão Moura


The Geodesign technique for which it is intended is an alternative exercise plan for a region of the Quadrilátero Ferrífero, in Minas Gerais, Brazil, using a Geology base such as. The geodesy workshop was developed for the mining and construction of a territorial plan for a region. This result is the Decision Model, which is consistent with a study area and has demonstrated that the method used is assertive to landscape and territory planning.
