Florence, 18 March 2016 

The focus of the conference was the connection between the territorial government requirements and technological tools to support decisions. 
The workshop takes stock of the results achieved within the project  LIFE+IMAGINE, which implemented an infrastructure based on web services for environmental analysis with the aim of providing information in support of coastal planning and decision makers in some pilot sites in Liguria and Tuscany. In particular, the project considered two scenarios: landslides and land use in coastal areas.
