The e-Commerce geoportal of the Istituto Geografico Militare.
A reference point for Italian national cartography, the Istituto Geografico Militare (IGM) is a production, educational, archival and commercial center in the field of geographic information, de facto in all its disciplines (cartography, geodesy, remote sensing, photogrammetry, geographic information systems).
The cartographic production and the coordination and technical reference function at national and international level are the main activities of the institute. However, they are not the only activities. The Institute, in fact, also acts as a training center and a commercial center. Among other activities, IGM sells cartographic, photogrammetric and geodetic products.
Since July 2017, thanks to an e-Commerce section of the www.igmi.org portal, it is possible to buy some of the cartographic products stored in the immense information assets held by the IGM.
Through the portal you can buy cartographic data, historical cartography, aerial photos and geodetic elements related to your area of interest, but also publications and the software Verto.
Thanks to a very simple on-line procedure on a cartographic basis, it is possible to make your purchase in just a few steps: selecting the area of interest, choosing the type of data desired and choosing the format (digital, printed or three-dimensional rielief map). Registered users can, then, add the products to their cart and make the purchase. The delivery, in the case of printed products, is made at the desired address by courier.
The e-Commerce portal was developed by the Istituto Geografico Militare in cooperation with Planetek Italia, adopting an Open Source Content Management System (CMS) according to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG v1.0).
