AM/FM GIS Italy And States General of Innovation, associations that collaborate on relevant innovative themes of the geographic information, intend to promote the SINFI in order to contribute to its more widespread and extensive use, contributing to the population and implementation phase initiated by the Ministry of Industry and Economic Development, MISE, currently underway.

With this in mind, they proposed a INFRATEL Italy SpA, society in house to the Ministry of Economic Development, which, among other things, is entrusted with the management of the SINFI, and ad ANCI And UTILITY, subjects most representative of the categories of operators involved, to organize this seminar together online.

The webinars has the objective of illustrating the issues concerning the process of population and implementation of the SINFI, and is specifically dedicated to the subjects of the so-called Internal Areas: local authorities, providers and infrastructure managers, as well as geomatics professionals operating within those territories.

The program of webinars was defined in close collaboration with the invited experts. Each speaker, bearing in mind the role of his organization with respect to the SINFI development phase in progress, will present to the various categories of operators involved the set of methodological and procedural elements deemed essential to intervene adequately, also in connection with the training initiative of the "SINFI Delegate" in each large area of the country.

The SINFI: the first national cadastre of infrastructures. Benefits for operators of utilities and municipalities – Pietro Abbati Marescotti, INFRATEL Italy

The populating activity of the SINFI is in full swing. With reference to the state of the art regarding this phase, the functionalities of the system available both for operators and for public administrations will be illustrated. In this context, the role of the Wide Area Coordinator fits in, a figure introduced to favor coordination between the SINFI technical structure of Infratel and the Municipalities of the reference territory.
The next planned actions, the modalities defined for their development and the interested parties will also be presented.
The intention is therefore to provide the general framework of the SINFI platform through the description of the functions in use and the expected evolutions, with hints on the possible further evolutions of the system.

Developments of legal obligations by the Operators managing technological networks called to the first data population of the SINFI. Comparison between the different levels of development of data models in the georeferencing of water and energy networks as well as the developments of the AgID standardization of institutional data exchange in relations between Operators and public bodies.

Municipalities and SINFI: opportunities and skills – Mauro Savini, ANCI

The Municipalities play a double role within the SINFI: as suppliers of relevant data and as users of the information relating to their territory contained within the system. An aspect, the latter, which can greatly support the government action of the territory. In order for this to happen, however, a widespread information action and technical assistance tools for administrative action are needed that can allow local authorities to better manage the georeferenced data.
