It provides a tool to monitor, assess and report on the state of play of location interoperability in policy and digital public services of EU Member States and other countries implementing INSPIRE.

LIFO 2019 Italy


This factsheets shows that Italy's scores are slightly below the European average across the five assessed focus areas of the EULF Blueprint, with only “Governance, Partnership and Capabilities” above the European average.

Italy performed slightly below the average in the focus areas “Policy and Strategy Alignment”, Digital Government Integration”, “Standardisation and Reuse” and “Return on Investment”.

In these focus areas, a larger margin of improvement is required, in particular for the use of location-enabled services and data for the provision of cross-sector and cross-border digital public services. 

In the “Governance, Partnership and Capabilities” focus area, Italy displays a particularly high score for the organisation of initiatives that raise awareness and develop geospatial skills. 

LIFO index for 2019

The value of the overall LIFO index combining the scores for all focus areas, is 0.47. This compares with a European average of 0.54.  The factsheet describes in detail how the results in each focus area are composed.
