The Department CAVEA / LABSITA (Laboratorio di Sistemi Informativi Territoriali e Ambientali) was founded about 10 years ago and is part of CAVEA, which is a department of the First Faculty of Architecture “Ludovico Quaroni” at the University of Rome La Sapienza. The Laboratory performs research studies, applications and education on advanced techniques of GI (GIS, SDI, Data Modelling, Remote Sensing, Image Processing, IT, etc.) applied to the analysis, planning, monitoring and management of environment, territory, natural and cultural heritage and agricultural resources. Masters thesis about GIS are currently carried out in the Laboratory. LABSITA is a founding member of AGILE, member of the network GISIG and the EU project LEONARDO. The department has organised jointly with AMFM Italia the first Italian workshop on interoperability and SDI and has organised jointly with AM FM Italia, OGC and ESA the first Italian “OGC interoperability day”. Following its involvement in the INSPIRE EC initiative LABSITA has produced the green paper "Proposals for actions oriented to the realization of SDI for the Local Authorities" addressed to Italian public and private context. LABSITA is a founding member of SDIC MORE for helping to define implementation rules for Monitoring and Reporting the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive.
