To establish priorities when planning the schedule for urban governmental interventions it is necessary to establish grades of poverty within squatter developments. Areas classified with the highest grade of poverty are assigned resources in the short term.
When developing proposals for Los Claveles, a squatter development located in Venezuela, ARC GIS was the supporting tool for analyzing spatial and no spatial data. Data measured and categorized through urban and environmental indexes allowed the definition of categories of poverty and terms for improvement interventions.
Environmental indexes measured the adequate insertion of buildings in the geography and urban indexes measured relations of built public open space, dwelling located within walking distances from schools and health services, square meters of built space per family, family size, etc
The analysis included the topology of social relationships, since community ties are topologically based and permanence of community relationships grounds any sustainable proposal.
