Visualizing Venice is a Digital Humanities initiative that consists of students, scholars and architects at all levels of their careers who are actively involved in research projects to generate digital models and maps of the city of Venice, its territories, and its lagoon. Our goals are two:
– to enhance the understanding of the city, the lagoon, and its region as an on-going process of change and transformation over time,
– to communicate new knowledge about place and space to the public through portable devices and on the Visualizing Venice website.
Our research is based on archival and printed sources (documents, cartography, images) from which we generate three-dimensional models and animations that address questions of change and transformation.
