geographical information systems, renewable energy sources, renewable energy potentials, territorial energy ordination


Computer science's technologies have come to revolutionize the current era, the distributed generation and the introduction of new alternatives in the conception of the energy production, it is a factor that seen from the energy planning it allows to introduce the renewable energy sources as an element in the development of energetically sustainable territories.  The space distribution of the natural resources that they generate, it has made necessary to develop advanced systems for the studies at the space level. For the necessities of printing an analysis space and territorial of the renewable energy sources studies, a geographical information system of renewable energy sources was designed using free software that offers information of the renewable potentials in the territory. This system is a tool that allows an appropriate way to offers information of the place (longitude and latitude) and the potentials (solar, hydric, wind, and biomass) that are generated in them.
