AbstractThis chapter seeks to analyze the new processes of the Anthropoceneepoch by examining, in the first part, the relationship with human geography andgeoethics. In fact, Anthropocene is also faced with an ethical and cultural perspec-tive. Geoethics focuses on how scientists (natural and social), arts and humanitiesscholars working in tandem can become more aware of their ethical responsibilitiesto guide society on matters related to public safety in the face of natural hazards,sustainable use of resources, climate change, and protection of the environment.Furthermore, some case studies in the Mediterranean basin, where the transforma-tions imposed by human action and society on the Earth's environment are evident,will be analyzed in relation to Disaster Risk Reduction practices_ social perceptionand communication, community resilience, participative approaches, using CIGISand neogeographic technologies. These case studies constitute some examples of"geographies and cartographies of the Anthropocene". In this framework, two casestudies in the Central Mediterranean will be analyzed with the support of Web 2.0and geohydrological risk perception using Community Integrated GIS.
