The intent of this project was to contribute to the preservation of the churches of Venice. The goal was to develop a comprehensive catalogue of all the churches of Venice, based on the original catalogue produced by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1968. The new catalogue is a searchable database with updated information that is accessible from the World Wide Web. To achieve this goal there were three main objectives: computerization of the existing catalogue, updating the catalogue, and the creation of the Internet version of the catalogue so that the information may be distributed the world over.
