The development of science and technology enhance the economic increase. But it also takes many environment problems. In China, as a developing country, the concentration of population in cities causes several things. The first is an ecological crisis caused by the environment problems. On the other hand, with the help of the IT, we can monitor the environment at real-time on-line. IT provides so many methods to analyze the data and to control the pollution. So many environmental information systems on environmental impact assessment and environment management have been developed. Making mathematic models to simulate the environment change, such as simulate the diffusion of gas in the air, is very helpful for environment impact assessment and environment protection. The information technology is very helpful to handle the environmental information.
