The Island of Pellestrina: Case Study for the Environmental Atlas of the Venetian Lagoon project developed a methodology for collecting traffic and beach use data on Pellestrina and a structure for presenting this information. The methodology and structure were generalized to propose the Environmental Atlas of the Venetian Lagoon. The Osservation Naturalistico will use the Atlas to verify environmental impact assessments for sustainable urban development and to plan for the future of Venice and its lagoon.
