Regione del Veneto in northeast Italy is home to more than 4.5 million people. Its capital, Venice, is one of the most visited cities in the world. To meet the growing challenges that come with managing infrastructure for a major urban area, the Veneto region’s Geographic Information System (GIS) and Cartography Department needed a new, cost-efficient technology
environment. It wanted a system that could support internal activities of many regional departments and make it easy to share vast amounts of data. This environment would also allow users to make updates via a Web-based interface, ensuring the most current, secure, and accurate information would be available across the enterprise.
Veneto’s GIS and Cartography Department was successfully using Intergraph® technology for the distribution of regional and local cartographic data and maps. It expanded its use of Intergraph’s GeoMedia® WebMap Professional and TerraShare® software platform to implement an SDI solution that enables data sharing via the region’s intranet, and conforms to standards such as Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE).
