What do environments can tell us about supernovae?

The advent of Integral Field Spectroscopy (IFS) applied to supernova (SN) environmental studies have shown the potential of this technique to directly characterize the galactic environmental parameters at SN locations, compare them to those at different locations of the galaxy, and put constraints on progenitor stars for different SN types. Here, I will summarize past works and present on­going efforts, including  the PISCO compilation and the AMUSING survey, that have put together more than 600 SN hosts observed with IFS.
