This work presents the method and tools used to evaluate land suitability for rural resettlement of displaced families. All with the intent of mitigating socioeconomic impacts for one of the annex channels in the main project axis, considering legal and technical criteria. Using geoprocessing tools, 4490 hectares of land were effectively identified as best suited for this purpose, helping public managers to promptly decide the adequate course of action.
