GIS and Remote Sensing (RS) are powerful tools for environmental data analysis, planning, environmental assessments, environmental impact evaluations, water quality studies, environmental compliance, environmental permitting and environmental records evaluation. GIS and RS allow better viewing and understanding physical features and the relationships that influence in a given critical environmental condition. Factors such as contamination points, vegetation, slope, soils and hydro-graphic can be viewed and overlaid to determine various environmental parameters and impact analysis.

Geo-journalism is about geo-data. Data become more powerful when you know its location. Telling a story with geo-data is Geo-journalism. There is an expanding use of interactive maps and data in the media, not simply to answer the conventional “where” of the news story but as an integral narrative means to help communicate complex information more quickly and easily to a wide audience. It reflects the increased interaction between content producers (journalist) and several other fields such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), computer science and statistics. Geo-journalism is a Geoidea service designed to help journalists to produce powerful and unprecedented visualizations of news by using interactive maps. GIS facilitates journalists to analyze data and look for interesting relationships and relate these to news stories. GIS helps to access a vast store of readily available data at no cost. This data comes from government agencies, GIS consortiums, universities, and commercial ventures.
