The location definition of an enterprise is one of the key decisions that will link the existence and intensity of a significant negative environmental impacts resulting from its installation and operation, although the planning of most brazilian projects potentially causing significant environmental degradation has not fully consider the environmental dimension at the time of this definition. Although the environmental impact studies have among their aims at comparing the environmental feasibility of alternative locations for a particular project, some important in the production function of the project are often already taken the time prior to the licensing process when it is not available a reference base with the potential and restrictions of the territory for the analysis. In this sense, this master's project aims at analyzing the environmental feasibility of the route of the southern section of the Rodoanel Mario Covas in the metropolitan region of Sao Paulo, from the development of an environmental baseline for verifying what are the potential and the restrictions that the territory requires the implementation of the project in relation to other possible alternatives for the route.
