Abstract

For this project, data was collected on the accessibility of bridges, water transportation, public establishments, and points of interest in Venice for people with a variety of disabilities, from mobility impairments to sight deficiencies. A website template was created that acts as a data repository for the accessibility data we collected that will be usable for people who have disabilities to plan their activities in Venice. This website includes an interactive map of the accessible islands via bridges and water transportation, as well as several maps of public points of interest and establishments on Giudecca. These deliverables focused on assisting people with disabilities when traveling in Venice and laid the foundation for extending accessibility practices in the city.
