The palaces of Venices are historical monuments which are constantly being modified to keep them current with present-day standards so that they remain usable. When a modification to a palace is requested, it is studied by several agencies and preservation organizations to ensure that the requested modification does not jeopardize the historical integrity of the structure. However, each of the agencies works off of different sources to acquire information necessary to reach an appropriate decision. The goal of our project was to combine the resources of all the agencies and integrate them into a computerized database. Besides being a comprehensive source of information, the database establishes a standard institutional link between the different departments to share information and cooperate with each other more effectively, thus streamlining their efforts towards the preservation of palaces.
