Venice, Italy


The number of pedestrians in the city of Venice has been rapidly increasing and the mobility of the streets has been compromised. Since 2007 pedestrian data on bridges and street segments has been collected by WPI students. Our project sought not only to continue this, but also analyze how pedestrians impact the streets. Our data provides information on the understanding of traffic flow on the streets. It will also serve as a baseline to later determine the effect the installation of a new tramline will have on the city. Our team also worked to model the infrastructure of the streets through the creation of GIS map layers as well contributed data to a Pedestrian Model. The infrastructure information was published in Venipedia pages where it will be preserved for the future.
