Geographic Information Science and Software (GIS)

The site selected to grow, process, store, sell and serve plant and animal foods for consumption anywhere on earth has a great impact on food safety. If the land, water and air of the site contains toxic pollutants, the site must be examined for suitability for food production and consumption, either on land or in water. In addition, natural hazards such as flood, fire, earthquake, landslide and other natural hazards of the site also could threaten food safety. Fortunately, geographic information System (GIS) Software and Science are great tools that can be used to protect food from environmental hazards by selecting a proper site for food production, processing and consumption.
