Abstract

The ultimate goal of our project was to develop a publicly accessible profile of the positive and negative economic, social, and environmental impacts of cruise ships and their passengers on the city. We accomplished our objectives by determining the passenger expenditure throughout the city, analyzing the cruise ships' affect on canal flow by means of hydrodynamics, and providing a qualitative analysis and visual representation of the impact of cruise ships on Venetian life.
