A seamless digital elevation model (DEM) of the whole Italian territory, named TINITALY/01 (also known as the "TINITALY" DEM, in short), was presented in 2007 (Tarquini et al. 2007*). This DEM was obtained starting from separate DEMs of single administrative regions of Italy. The DEM is freely available as a 10 m-cell size grid (in GeoTIFF format), in the UTM WGS 84 zone 32 projection system (see the link download).
TINITALY is published with a CC BY 4.0 license and can be used freely, even partly, but it must be cited as follows.
