To accomplish these changes with ten neighbor countries, the IBGE queries the Ministry of Foreign Relations´ Commission of Border Demarcation, the office in charge of the demarcation and characterization of Brazilian borders. On the other hand, the updating of the eastern side of the strip is an effort of the IBGE´s state units and agencies in getting information on the updating of the municipality borders.
The current measurement was based on the Geocentric Reference System for the Americas (SIRGAS2000) and the calculation of the areas was geoprocessed. The IBGE had already calculated the borderland strip area in 1941, using technologies available at that time.
