A seamless digital elevation model of the whole Italian territory, named TINITALY/01, was presented in 2007 (Tarquini et al. 2007*). This DEM was obtained starting from the achievement of the DIGITALIA project, which previously involved the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia in a general agreement with the Italian Ministero dell'Ambiente e della Tutela del Territorio for the derivation of separate DEMs of single administrative regions of Italy. The whole DEM database as a 10 m-cell size grid, in the UTM WGS 84 zone 32 projection system, is now available upon motivated request (see the link download)
