Higgins, Lorraine D.
City of Venice
The resident population is declining, and tourism is rising in Venice. At the same time, neighborhood shops are closing, and tourist stores are opening, which impacts the local population. To analyze these changes, our team developed applications to collect, visualize and analyze data on the retail sector. Our analysis showed increasing encroachment into public space by shops’ plateatici. To address this, we developed an online system for managing and enforcing retailers’ rental of public space.
