The mapping and identification of multi-drug resistant (MDR) bacteria in affluents and effluents requires updated data on their reality and context. However, the process of analyzing these results is still slow and sometimes ineffective due to the lack of adequate technological mechanisms. This article presents the development of a mobile application as a tool for the information management system using geolocation and dashboads to map collection points, as well as resources to analyze the results obtained. The M.I.T. APP Inventor was used in the project along with PHP PDO and MySQL technology in the web server layer. The preliminary results indicated an interesting alternative solution to the specialists' requirements to contribute to management and decision-making, as well as a useful tool for interested health agents.
