geoportals, America Latin, local development, natural and resources, renewable energy sources


Geographic information systems are tools used in the organization and planning of the territory; they show physical-spatial information on different topics very opportune for decision making. In Latin America, several countries are using it for the purposes of inventories of the different renewable energy sources, fundamentally in order to know where they are located, these are a potential for local development and improve the energy sustainability of the territories. For the development of the research, a bibliography search was carried out, to know the countries of the region that are developing geoportals that contribute to local development, use of natural resources and mainly energy resources, as a result it was obtained that most of the Countries are working on inventories that help decision-making in national and territorial development programs, mainly natural and energy resources.
