The planning of the physical infrastructure for the integration
and development of Latin America requires an adequate access to
integrated, geo-referenced and standardized spatial
CAF has developed the Condor geographic
information system, launched in the year 2000 as the first
software tool designed to identify and prevent major negative
environmental and social impacts associated with large
infrastructure projects in the Andean region.
Afterwards, within the framework of the IIRSA
Initiative, CAF's GeoSUR Program was
developed as part of a decentralized network of institutions
responsible for generating and maintaining geographic information
necessary to make strategic decisions in the region.
This network brings together the national geographic institutes,
the ministries of infrastructure, planning and environment,
regional universities and research institutions. GeoSUR includes a
Regional Map Service of South America, which is made up of more
than 40 regional interactive maps containing geographic information
about all IIRSA projects available to the public.
