Abstract

Our project team created a unified database of demographic, dimensional, historical, and cultural information pertaining to each of the 166 islands in the Venetian Archipelago. Deliverables included online encyclopedia entries, an interactive map application that will help users access and compare island information, and bibliographic resources. We also created prototypes for booklets and brochures on the lesser known islands of Venice. Each deliverable creates easy access to information on this historic city for tourists, researchers and city officials alike.
