Abstract

This project analyzed the progress of urban maintenance in Venice. Through data collected from previous IQPs, it produced a Bridge Accessibility fieldwork form for future mobility studies. Automated Geographical Information System maps were created displaying danger zones of docks, location of useable docks, and Island Accessibility, previously updated manually by Comune di Venezia. A web application, Navigate Venice, was designed to assist mobility impaired individuals. Chapters written on Canals, Docks, Utilities, and Bridges were included for a 20th anniversary publication.
