The ISPRA Geoportal is  managed by an interdepartmental working group.

ISPRA is the national node of a federated and distributed system, the National Environmental Protection System (SNPA), with the 21 Regional and Autonomous Provincial Agencies (ARPA/APPA).

Through the Geoportal, ISPRA provides information derived from INSPIRE National Monitoring (Direttiva Europea 2007/2/EC; D.lgs. 32/2010) and made available by Central and Regional Administrations and Research Institutes having environmental competences.

The distributed catalogues network is based on CNR technology.

The Geoportal is based on Esri technologies and was developed together with Esri Italy.
