Researchers create a portrait of 100 years of land use evolution in Portimão

Project analyzes multi-temporal geographic data observed between 1947 and 2021, with simulated projections for the year 2047

An academic and scientific project that portrays 100 years of evolution of land occupation and use in the municipality of Portimão is underway, the result of a partnership between the local Municipality and the Interdisciplinary Center for Social Sciences of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the New University of Lisbon (CICS.NOVA).

This municipality mapping project, which has public funding, analyzes multi-temporal geographic data observed between 1947 and 2021, with simulated projections for the year 2047, with the scientific curatorship of Raquel Faria de Deus, researcher at CICS.NOVA, and José António Tenedório, professor at NOVA FCSH.

The results of the work will be presented next October, on the occasion of the exhibition “Portimão and Territory – Portrait of 100 years of evolution of land occupation and use”, whose opening is scheduled for the 11th in the old Lota building, as part of the program of the city's centenary.

The exhibition will present a series of maps of land use and occupation in the period in question, produced by researcher Raquel de Deus, illustrating the main transformations that occurred over 100 years in the municipality, with a projection of the historical urban processes that explain, to a large extent, these changes.

On the same date, a round table is planned to be held on the topic “Transformation of land use, Resilience and Territorial Sustainability” with the participation of experts in the area, who will address the challenges and opportunities for the municipality’s future in this matter. .
