are in the process of being produced for the Documental Integrated Multimedia Project (DIMP) started by the
Italian National Seismic Survey (NSS). The purpose of the project is to reconstruct the historical record of
earthquakes and promote an earthquake public education. Producing the monographs. developed in ARC
INFO and working in UNIX. involved designing a special filing and management methodology to integrate
heterogeneous information (images, papers, cartographies, etc.). This paper describes the possibilities of a GIS
(Geographic Information System) in the filing and management of documental information. As an example we
present the first monograph on the 1883 Casamicciola earthquake. on the island of Ischia (Campania, Italy).
This earthquake is particularly interesting for the following reasons: I) historical-cultural context (first destructive
seismic event after the unification of Italy); 2) its features (volcanic earthquake); 3) the socioeconomic
consequences caused at such an important seaside resort.
