This work presents the research of the geothermal data from 132 wells distributed in the state of Rio de Janeiro and Campos Basin, Brazil. These data were used to create maps of geothermal gradient, surface temperature, thermal conductivity and geothermal flux of the region. Through the maps, it was possible to identify the regions with the highest gradients and geothermal flow that are the regions of Itaguaí, Costa Verde, Middle Paraíba and the southern part of the Northern Fluminense. The geothermal flow of the state of Rio de Janeiro ranged from 39 mW/m² to 95 mW/m², even so, the entire region studied had a geothermal flow far below that needed for electricity generation, although the artisanal use of geothermal energy such as water heating is not yet ruled out.
