“In all walks of life, people are realizing that ‘sustainable prosperity’ means making choices that are good for the environment, communities and our economy.
Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) April 21, 2011
Earth Knowledge, a leading information technology firm, today unveiled its new Earth Knowledge Portal using its proprietary WISSDOM™ (World Information Systems Socially Delivered via Online Media) technology (http://www.earthknowledge.com), which provides access to expert earth and world information for businesses and organizations that need it.
The Earth Knowledge Portal (http://www.earthknowledge.net) makes it easy for science experts and neophytes alike to easily survey the day’s global environmental news. The Portal collects, integrates and disseminates key natural, social, and economic environmental information of the day with leading science and content providers such as BBC, World Wildlife Fund, Reuters, NASA, NOAA, Christian Science Monitor, SustainableBusiness.com and more.
“In all walks of life, people are realizing that ‘sustainable prosperity’ means making choices that are good for the environment, communities and our economy. Yet to find reliable information, it can be overwhelming to sort through the vast amount of information available,” says Earth Knowledge’s Co-Founder and CEO Julia Armstrong D'Agnese. “We sort through it for you, make it easy to understand, and continually update it to keep you current on the world’s latest discoveries.”
The website’s Earth Knowledge Virtual Globe (http://www.earthknowledge.net/map), powered by Google Earth, is an innovative way to view global news and information just in time for Earth Day. The Google Earth Outreach Team (http://earth.google.com/outreach) has shared with Earth Knowledge some of their outstanding Google Earth Tours featuring Al Gore, Ted Danson, and many figures in the realm of sustainability.
University of Phoenix is the lead education partner for The Earth Knowledge Portal (http://www.phoenix.edu/partners/earth-knowledge.html). Partnering with Earth Knowledge is another way the University seeks to foster educational opportunity and environmental stewardship.
“The Earth Knowledge Portal is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to integrating, sharing, and visualizing earth information using our WISSDOM™ Technology,” says Dr. Frank D’Agnese, Earth Knowledge’s Co-Founder, President, and CTO. “We look forward to offering the full set of tools and capabilities to our clients and customers.”
