I have been searching for a building data layer for the Naples region of Italy (Campania). I am studying volcanic risk from a volcano called Campi Flegrei and have to see how this volcano could affect the resident population. I have been trawling through Italian sites for days and cannot seem to find the information as shapefiles.
Some previous research has used 133 regional level Campania Region, scale 1:5.000 digitised from pdf, however, their data is not freely available. I could try and digitilise from these pdfs, however, I think this would take months and not be accurate. Any one know of sites or open access databases that people would recommend?
Hi Danielle, I am not aware of free shapefiles but data services from INGV (National Institute Of Geophysics and Volcanology) or SGI (Italian Geological Service) are quite valuable.
For example: Campi Flegrei - stato attuale
Or this ArcGIS folder: Folder: /
You can also search for INGV in ArcGIS online and get many results.
