This paper summarizes the capabilities of geographical information system (GIS) in CO2 capture and geological storage (CCS). GIS is emerging as a useful tool for the spatio-temporal analysis, techno-economic feasibility and environmental assessment of CCS projects. A review on the recent case studies reveals the applicability of geoinformation technology to the screening and analysis of emission sources, transportation and storage possibilities of CO2. This paper presents a survey on the methodologies, techniques and tools for modeling of the CO2 emission form stationary sources, CCS-GIS database development, spatial source-sink matching, and economic assessment.
