Abstract

This paper examined the critical role of GIS in energy science analysis with practical examples. It is established that GIS has the capability to identify the location of energy resources and it can also be used in mapping, analysis, exploration, monitoring, modelling and management of energy resources. In spite of these capabilities, GIS has not been properly exploited in energy science due to lack of awareness of what GIS can do especially in less developed countries. This is a challenge to GIS community. There is therefore a need for enlightenment of the public and stakeholders on the functionalities of GIS.
