In the framework of the COASTGAP Project three new Regional Spatial Data Infrastructures have been connected to the Pegaso ICZM SDI. 

The COASTGAP project ( is the result of more than 10 years of shared experiences for managing the Mediterranean Coastal Zones. As part of the cluster FACECOAST (“Face the challenge of climate change in the med coastal zones”) establised in 2011, the COASTGAP project aims to capitalize 12 Best Practices, including the Best Practice six: “PEGASO SDI and Geoportal for ICZM” designed to improve data sharing in the Mediterranean to support Integrated Coastal Zone Management. 
During the capitalisation process, the PEGASO SDI Best Practice has been adopted by three Italian Regions: Lazio, Emilia Romagna and Liguria Region which have shared their Data Catalogues (interoperables web services) and thus populating the Pegaso SDI (catalogue and viewer) with cartography concerning coastal zones that can be fully accesible through the PEGASO Geoportal.
