                         consistent information that supports the territorial planning, 
                         allowing environmental assessments thereby subsidizing public and 
                         private sectors. This demand can be satisfied with the integration 
                         of information into a system, with properties and processing

                         thesis proposes a methodology for environmental assessment of 
                         watersheds that operates from the choice of indicators and 
                         definition of the weights of its contribution to the 
                         implementation of assessments and spatialisation of results in a 
                         GIS environment. This methodology is composed of two distinct 
                         phases: assessment of environmental vulnerability of the basin by 
                         the use of spatial decision support systems, and assessing the 
                         sustainability of the basin through the calculation of Ecological 
                         Footprint. In the first phase are adopted decision support 
                         systems, knowledge bases, GIS and a tool that integrates these 
                         results allowing the generation of assessments, analysis and / or 
                         prospective scenarios. In the second stage, the sustainability of 
                         the basin is pictured from the calculation of the ecological 
                         footprint, which consists in accounting the area that a population 
                         needs to produce the resources consumed and absorb the waste 
                         generated. The comparison between the most vulnerable and less
