Spatial Data Infrastructure for Veneto, Italy

The region of Veneto, Italy will use Intergraph technology to create a centralized spatial data infrastructure (SDI) database to improve access to spatial data across the region and to conform to standards such as INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe).

The project will consolidate and standardise multiple databases into one SDI geographic database, harmonising and securing geospatial data exchange between Venetian government entities, businesses and the public for improved collaboration and productivity and ease of maintenance and administration.

Intergraph and its partners in this project will also enable users to easily catalogue and search for stored information, and will support the use of Web services for the simple publishing, dissemination and display of spatial data.

The Italian government is utilizing Intergraph GIS and commercial photogrammetry products to help manage infrastructure and safeguard the Venice lagoon from the rising tides of the Adriatic Sea.
