This year, the Air & Waste Management Association celebrates its centennial. The past 100 years have yielded remarkable technological advances, especially in the area of information technology (IT). Within our professional lifetimes, we have shifted from using manually typed memos and reports, pink telephone message slips and pagers to computer-generated reports, Internet data exchange, e-mail, and cell phones—now necessary tools for environment, health, and safety (EH&S) professionals. In a relatively short period, we have gone from a few mainframe computer air dispersion modeling programs to hundreds of Web- or PC-based software applications for air dispersion and groundwater modeling, geospatial data display, incident and greenhouse gas tracking, environmental management systems, and a myriad of other purposes.

This article highlights six information technologies that have had a profound impact on the way we work today.
