A supercomputer installed in INPE was acquired by FAPESP in partnership with the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI) to do this work.

In the session that includes Biodiversity and the Amazon, the coordinator of the BIOTA-FAPESP project, Carlos Joly, will present data on the first phase of the program (1999-2009), among which are 27 maps of vegetation that serve as benchmarks for the Board of State Attorneys when dealing with environmental degradation cases in six regional centers within the state of So Paulo.
