InterIMAGE
INPE/PUC-Rio
The InterIMAGE system is a open source knowledge based framework for Automatic Image Interpretation. The interpretation strategy implemented by the system is based on a knowledge model defined by the user, structured as a semantic network. The nodes of the network represent concepts, classes of image objects expected to be found in a scene. Specialized image processing operators built using TerraLib are attached to the system, which controls their execution.

TerraNetwork - Dedicated GIS to Urban Network Applications
LAC/INPE    ( Dr. Luiz Antonio Nogueira Lorena)
The general goal of this project is to develop a prototype of a GIS, named TerraNetwork (based on the project ARSIG), dedicated to applications dealing with urban networks. This system addresses problems that involve the spatial distribution of the data such as the location of facilities, and those related to transportation and route findings. These problems are solved by using algorithms and methods of combinatorial optimization.

ZEE - Brazilian Ecological and Economic Zoning Program
FUNCATE    ( Ubirajara Moura de Freitas)
The Ministry of Environment created an Internet Portal to disseminate information related with Brazilian Amazon region. FUNCATE developed a Geographic Database, with themes as Satellite Images, Vegetation, Geology, Geomorphology, Land Use, Protected Areas, Indian Reservations, Remarkable Biodiversity Areas, and Municipalities, with associated social and economic data. Spatial queries could be applied using an Active Server Page application, driven by Terralib.

GMI - Integrated Urban Geographic Information Systems
FUNCATE    ( Ubirajara Moura de Freitas )
FUNCATE is implementing Geographic Databases, driven by TerraLib  technology, in many Brazilian municipalities. This technology allows the creation of a corporate database, where geographic data could be updated by multiple users, in a safe, distributed and concurrent way. Application programs, covering all activities related with municipal administration, have been developed using components built over Terralib library. This technology creates "live" maps in opposition to "static" maps, generated when using old stile GIS technology.

InfoPAE - An emergency plan deployment system
Tecgraf and Petrobras    ( Marcelo Tilio)
InfoPAE is the result of a partnership between Tecgraf, the Computer Graphics Technology Group of PUC-Rio and PETROBRAS , the Brazilian Oil Company. InfoPAE is an automated system designed to improve the response to emergency situations. The system offers sophisticated action plans, easy access to vital information and tight control over the resources allocated to face an emergency. The system is applicable to pipelines, oils terminals, oil refineries and offshore installations, and it also proved to be a valuable training tool. InfoPAE works with local emergency action plans, which are structured collections of actions, coupled with information stored in geographical as well as conventional databases. During an emergency, the team follows a previously stored plan, backed up by its ancillary information. The team registers the actions taken and documents eventual difficulties. Later on, upper level management may use the system to generate reports that are useful to detect eventual problems with the plan or to assess the performance of the team. The system is structured into four major modules, one to create plans and to insert new information into the databases, one that controls the execution of a plan during an emergency, one that manages the geographical as well as conventional data stored in the database and finally the visualization module, that allows users to browse data related to the location where an emergency occurred. TerraLib is used with the visualization module, to support typical geographical information system funcionality. The system is exclusive for PETROBRAS use .

Epidemiologic Surveillance Support System
INPE/UFMG/PRODABEL/UFPR/FIOCRUZ
In order to increase the competence of the health sector in the control of transmissible diseases it is necessary to develop new tools for epidemiological surveillance, integrating environmental aspects, risk factor detection, and automatic and semiautomatic methods, allowing outbreak detection and follow-up in space and time. The main aim of this project is to produce critical technological tools to make possible anticipate and amplify preventive interventions, optimizing activities and resources in health promotion.

aRT
LEG - Laboratório de Estatistica e Geoinformação - UFPR
aRT (API R-TerraLib) is an R package that provides the integration between the software R and the GIS classes TerraLib. The aim is to have a package for analysing spatial data in R. R is a freely-available open source language and environment for estatistical computing and graphics. To learn more about R go to R project web page.

myR
LEG - Laboratório de Estatistica e Geoinformação - UFPR
If you want to use the software R and do not want to understand how it works internally, you can use myR which is a C++ library to access R functionalities. With myR you can call TerraLib functions and algorithms inside a C++ application. myR has been used to perform TerraView algorithms, R packages such as geoR and computational procedures for geostatistical analysis.

TerraCrime
INPE/LESTE
The TerraCrime project aims at creating an Open Source Free Software for spatial analyses of criminal occurrences. This project is being developed by the Spatial Statistics Laboratory-LESTE at Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) and the Image Processing Division (DPI) at the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) in a partnership with the Secretary of Public Safety (SENASP) at the Ministery of Justice. TerraCrime 1.0 was built based on the TerraLib library. It analyzes and creates statistical reports on criminal activity in a particular geographic area, cross-referencing the data with other variables such as population, time of the incident etc. This work was partially supported by CNPq ( PDI-TI/CTINFO Programs) under grant no. 552044/2002-4, as part of the SAUDAVEL Project. For more information check TerraCrime homepage (in Portuguese).

TerraStat
INPE/UFMG
The TerraStat library is a fundamental part of TerraLib GIS library. It is a set of algorithms of statistical spatial-temporal analyses for data stored in Geographic Databases. This project is being developed and conducted by he Spatial Statistics Laboratory-LESTE at Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) and the Image Processing Division (DPI) at the National Institute for Space Research (INPE). This work was partially supported by CNPq ( PDI-TI/CTINFO Programs) under grant no. 552044/2002-4, as part of the SAUDAVEL Project.
