Lansdslides in Italy affect about 70% of the municipalities (5600 out of 8101), this and other informations came out from the “Ladslides Report in Italy”officially released in November 2007 by the Italian Agency for Environmental Protection and Technical Services (APAT). These were some of the important findings of the IFFI Project (Inventario dei Fenomeni Franosi in Italia), in which an homogenous and updated inventory of the Italian landslides was successfully accomplished by APAT, in collaboration with the Regions and the Autonomous Provinces.
The IFFI Inventory was published on the Internet with the aim of disseminating information related to landslides to national and local administrations, research institutes, geologists, engineers and citizens. This data infrastructure composed by vector and alphanumeric database, as well as by thematic carthography for hydrogeological/environmental emergencies is now available through Cart@net a WebGIS solution developed by Planetek Italia. This on-line archive is designed for easy access and consultation by stake holders involved in decision making and in the management of territorial planning.
Services related to Civil Protection and Risk Management are one of application field in Planetek Italia. The company has been involved in different projects, e.g. SLAM aimed at realizing products derived from the integration of data acquired by traditional and EO methodologies into a GIS environment.
