During last years, several activities have taken place in order to monitor environmental changes with the aim of supporting the ordinary activities in the territory administration. This has brought the deployment of several sensing systems each one with own features and peculiarities. The emerging of global computing is changing the classical system model of computation - stand-alone and isolated - to an open, global and connected one, by showing the needs to suitably manage critical aspects of the concurrent and distributed computation in heterogeneous environment. In this paper, the authors present a regional project that aims to develop an open service platform in order to integrate heterogeneous sensing information in order to facilitate the administrative decision-making processes.
