KEYWORD: WebGIS, tsunami, RITMARE, Italy


RITMARE is the Italian contribution to a sea research program promoted by the European Commission aiming to create an integrated maritime policy. In this context a geodatabase about tsunami events recorded along the Italian coasts, as reported in recent scientific papers, has been realized. Each scientific paper occurring in the geodatabase is linked to its area of interest by means of a Geographical Information System (GIS). The geodatabase is available on the RITMARE website (www.ritmare.it) through a map server.
