This project aims to prove the technical viability of the development of a low cost computational system on a state of the art georeferenced platform, for the registration and consultation of urban water supply and sewage collection networks. The end users will be the autonomous water and sewage utilities operated by the prefectures in around 50 per cent of the country’s municipalities. Automatic registration and consultation are vital tools in the management of water and sewage systems, being mandatory for the improvement of quality, sustainability and efficiency of these systems. The projected system will have three modules. The first is the registration module, consisting of an editing and data feed graphic-based interface of the QT or MFC standard, capable of designing or importing elements from the most common design packages such as Autocad, Microstation, and even from a georeferenced system. The second module consists of a database on the latest generation platform, Oracle IX standard, PostgreSQL and even a free access relational database. The third module, for registration enquiries, will permit access to the information from enquiry stations to a free access map server, through the Terralib system. The viability of the project should be proven by the establishment of a prototype of the system in the offices of an autonomous water utility company in the State of São Paulo. (AU)
