SAAAP — Routing Alternatives Environmental Evaluation System — was designed to select the best alternative route, within an area of interest, to implement a new pipeline project. The system takes into account economic, environmental and engineering factors, according to an optimality criterion that combines several variables, such as vegetation coverage, soil type and declivity. The system is operational and has been tested in several realistic projects.
