This project focuses on implementing 'City Knowledge' principles for Urbanistica and Edilizia Privata of Venice by extracting reusable information from private building permits. Pellestrina was used as a sample to model and demonstrate a theoretical system. We gathered information from archived permits, and digitized it via Microsoft Access and MapInfo. Scenarios were modeled using collected data, demonstrating the system's benefits. We conclude with an analysis of benefits, and give recommendations on implementing and improving the proposed system.
