About the Platform
The Baía Viva project has as main goal the development and implementation of an operational digital platform for the provision of environmental, social and economic information in and around the Guanabara Bay region. The diagnostic and prognostic information generated comes from different sources, such as: historical databases, in situ and remote data acquisition platforms and numerical computational models.
In addition to the dissemination of such information, the digital platform also involves extension, technical and academic training activities in different research areas. Such activities allow the continuous operation, development and optimization of the platform involving professionals and students from different educational levels.
The digital platform is public available, allowing both the visualization and acquisition of relevant information for different segments of society that use the region of Guanabara Bay and its surroundings. The project aims to attend demands in different sectors such as: environment, mobility, health, education and others seeking alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The project is physically based at the Laboratory of Computational Methods in Engineering (LAMCE), located in the UFRJ Technology Park and has the partnership of other laboratories and educational and research institutions. It is noteworthy that the project represents a pioneering effort associated with the regional initiatives of the Atlantic International Research Center (AIR Center).
