SINA: Italian national environmental system infrastructure from the data to the citizen

Carlo Cipolloni and Giuseppina Monacelli

(Submission #161)


Since 2017 the SNPA and ISPRA, as national central data hub, have started to redesign the National Environmental System, building a common approach to share data, but also some components, in order to evaluate environmental state and to collect all information needed to produce national and European report on the environmental status has foster the harmonisation process, basing on the INSPIRE Directive technical requirements. ISPRA started to set-up the SINA (Italian National Environmental Information System) platform to share and integrate dynamically data, taking in account also the complexity of each database and potential gap to serve data with INSPIRE data models. The platform is able to manage directly the datasets or the OGC/INSPIRE web services, according with their share policy, and have web services or applications able to view and download data. This process could facilitate the national system to produce in short time concrete and sturdy answers in the environmental emergency and analysis. In the first step a new path has been elaborated, taking in account the data flow analysis at national and regional level, then a new business model to produce data and indicators for citizen has been designed, building an operative data flow chain that is based from on side on INSPIRE principle and Technical requirements and from the other hand looking to integrate the technologies available in order to publish data services but also visualise data and environmental information in a new format. The system is composed by a combination of data infrastructure based on Open Source and ArcGIS Server farm that are able to manage metadata and data, transform them in line with INSPIRE data Specification and produce services and applications. Based on this server farm a series of dashboard are designed and customised on Elasticserach suite, in order to manage and aggregate data to produce as the European environmental reposting as national environmental state indicators, some example are presented on biodiversity indicator, industrial emission and Air quality. In the system data provided by the regional hubs are collected and stored in order to elaborate specific indicators.
