Occupational field:

Expert in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Thematic Cartography and Remote Sensing.
WebGIS application development, Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI).

Professional Experience:

Implementation of the "LaMMA Geoportal" (Datawarehouse) as Spatial Data Infrastructure (geoSDI) for the distribution, display and cataloging (data and related meta-information) of geospatial products managed by the Consortium in the many applications in meteorological and environment, in accordance with the standards of the OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) specifications of the INSPIRE Directive of the European Parliament and adopting fully OpenSource technology (Geoserver, Mapserver, opensource GeoNetwork-, PostgreSQL-PostGIS, Openlayers, GeoExt).

Implementation of GeoNetwork open source for searching Metadata (Geology, GIS, Weather). We were implemented all the automatic procedures to archiving and creation of a large number of meta-information, according to the specifications of the INSPIRE Directive and the guidance on the National Directory of Geographic Data DigitPA.

Development of GIS applications with particular reference to the development of methodologies for the production of detailed soil map of Tuscany within the project aimed at creating soil maps of the Tuscany Region.

Implementation of a WebMapping application aimed to determine air quality. These aspects relate to specific climatological indicators (wind fields, atmospheric stability classes, etc..), spatial representations of the load emissivity iso-concentration obtained from simulations of the main pollutants modeling (WRF-CALMET-CALGRID), timely information related to measurements made on the territory of the regional network of atmospheric monitoring, etc.

Implementation of a WebMapping application for the service "Permanent monitoring network for regional sustainable development" funded with DGRT 1126 of 23/03/2011.

Implementation of a WebMapping application for the service "Forest Fires Bulletin Risk" developed for the DG Economic Development Forestry Sector Planning Organization Regional forest fire of the Tuscany Region.

Implementation of a WebMapping application for the service "WIND-GIS Project for the construction of a web service for the evaluation of wind power in the region of Tuscany."
Implementation of the new geological database and its integration with the GIS database (Geographic Information System) of the Tuscany Region.


Implementation of a WebMapping application for thematic maps (geology, soil, etc ...) using Web-GIS OPEN-SOURCE framework such as p.mapper, the UMN MapServer and PHP / MapScript.

Participation in the Working Group of the Geological Database, appointed by the Scientific Geological Committee of the Toscany Region. Creation, using MS Visio 2002, the conceptual schema of the New Geological Database of Tuscany Region. Creating the physical schema platform ESRI Personal Geodatabase, Feature Dataset creation, Features Classes, relationship classes and alphanumeric tables. Setting of topological constraints.

Technical assistance activities, training, and implementation of the GIS Web Portal of the Municipality of Lucca.
