Short description from SERIS (old):

The Database provides an on-line consultation tool containing indicator factsheets and reports. Environmental information management and dissemination are among the most important functions performed by the ISPRA. The strategies adopted by the ISPRA ensure extensive dissemination of statistical information by making them available on-line. The Environmental Indicators Database plays an important role in this context. Created by APAT in 2004, it has a two-fold function: to support the production of the Environmental Data Yearbook and to supply information for consultation. The Database – which currently contains 300 indicator fact-sheets subdivided by themes (atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, waste, etc.) – is one of the widest-ranging and complete environmental data collections available in Italy. The design of the indicator fact-sheet was arrived at by reviewing and analysing existing national and international literature on the standardisation and harmonisation of environmental reporting tools and comprises two parts: • Indicator meta-data • Data associated with the indicator The Environmental Indicators Database presents the same characteristics as those indicated by SISTAN for Statistical Information Systems, with the result that it has been included in the National Statistical Programme.
