After downloading and pre-processing of the data, the IAHs were spatialized and could be geolocated. Results: 97.58% of the AIHs processed in 2015 in Goiás were geolocated. Of the 295,670 AIHs processed, it was possible to extract 24,220 different Zip codewith a success rate of geolocation of 98.72%.
