Aplicabilidade de Sistemas de Informações Geográficas (SIGs) livres nas ciências ambientais: o uso do QGIS

Leandro Obadowiski Bruno

Os Sistemas de Informações Geográficas (SIGs) tornaram-se componentes essenciais em variados campos de pesquisas e tarefas científicas dentro do domínio das ciências ambientais. Nesta categoria de aplicativos, destacam-se os chamados softwares livres por demonstrarem potencialidades promissoras. Este trabalho abordou a utilização das geotecnologias livres com enfoque no uso do QGIS. Utilizou-se como ferramenta a revisão de literatura a partir de estudos relacionados às ciências ambientais. Conclui-se que o software livre pode ser considerado uma abrangente plataforma de processamento e divulgação do conhecimento.

Applicability of free Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in environmental sciences. Geographic information systems (GIS) have become essential components in a variety of research fields and scientific tasks within the field of environmental sciences. In this category of applications, stand out the so-called free software for demonstrating promising potentialities. This work addresses a use of free geotechnologies with a focus without QGIS. It was used as the literature review from studies related to the environmental sciences. It is concluded that free software can be considered a comprehensive platform for processing and disseminating knowledge.

Environment; Water resources; Geoprocessing.
