About the publication - 2020
It is an extremely relevant spatial arrangement aiming at disseminating statistical and geoscientific information supporting Municipalities within the Brazilian Borderland Strip, with a total area of 1,420,925.635 km2, the equivalent to 16.7% of the Brazilian area.
Resulting from a set of geospatial operations involving the outline of the municipalities that touch the international border line, besides the signaling of their respective capitals, it allows analyses of the population, economic and cultural interaction among the peoples from South American countries, as well as of the regulation conditions related to land occupation, of sanitary order, immigration, customs, defense of the national territory and for the development programs of the Borderland Strip.
Among the major results, the highlights are the identification of 11 States, 588 municipalities either totally or partially affected, their respective areas and percentages, including Lagoa dos Patos and Lagoa Mirim, 508 municipal capitals within the Borderland Strip and 80 outside the strip.
This product supports studies for the development of new public policies on the axes of the economic development, security, defense, infrastructure and social issues, land use, environment and regional and sustainable integration due to the growth of urban and rural agglomerations in the Borderland Strip, mainly by pinpointing the Brazilian political-administrative units under the rules of national security, especially those related to public works of civil engineering, land acquisition or leasing by foreign physical or legal persons in these areas, special granting of land and services, economic exploitation and financial aid from the federal government, as well as subsidizing bilateral and multilateral agreements to improve relations with neighbor countries in the borderland strip.
