What is an information system on environmental information ?

Too much information.

The world has switched to a knowledge-based economy.
Ten years ago, finding information on a specific subject was a difficult task.

Today, the actual problem is too much information. A simple search in the internet will provide thousands of articles, books, pamphlets, catalogues, promotions, opinions, etc. The simple list of the available information (not the info itself !) may be long enough to overflow the capacity to read it.

The difficult task in our days is to filter the relevant information in a sea of irrelevant and repetitive documents.

Searching and processing environmental information.

A proper search for relevant information requires three elements:

1 – A sophisticated search system.

Our information system is a sophisticated one. We have developed it for years using not just information theories on searching and handling digital info, but permanently working with it and learning from actual experience.

The "invisible web" is that part of the web
the search engines can not "see"

We dive deep into the invisible web

2 – A professional approach to search for environmental information.

Finding the relevant information requires, besides, professional knowledge on the issue your are searching.

We are professionals with many years of experience on environmental consulting. As expressed in the profile of our firm, we perform consultancy on:
Once we define together with you the kind of answer/solution you need, we will select the relevant information with professional knowledge of the subject, filtering out what does no apply to your case.

3 – A professional analysis of the selected info.

Environmental information must be learned, studied and processed in order to find the best solution for a specific problem.

We, as experienced consultants, can do this much better than any data collection system, offering you the kind of answer you are looking for.
We transform information into know-how.

The volume of (environmental) information is high but the success we have had in converting that into evidence and knowledge has been only quite modest. The key step now is not the generation of more information - except in case of clearly outstanding questions. It is rather how do you extract the evidence from the information. How do you turn it into knowledge.
