FROM ENVIROMATICS TO SUSTAINABLE INFORMATICS:BEYOND THE DEFINITION AND CONCEPTUAL DELIMITATIONS
Environmental Information Systems and Environmental Informatics play an important role in decision-making in the field, being closely linked with environmental requirements in decades and with environmental research methodologies, as part of the sustainable development management. The discussion on sustainability, as particular environmental research methodologies, aims to identify characteristic attributes that allowed passage of environmental data to environmental information and environmental knowledge; from Environmental Information System and Environmental Informatics to Sustainable Informatics, starts to interest more and more actors and activists focused on environmental protection - according to the definition spectrum found on internet exhaustive search.
