  • The development of applications integrating modeling (growth and forestry models); simulation (prospective scenarios building) and spatial analyis (geographical information system);
  • Training modules on GIS, with Open Source (Q-GIS) and GPS applied to natural resources management;
  • In-depth understanding of densification process with saw dust and agricultural residues;
