Floating city-Venice

What’s the project?

For this particular task within ‘Imaging and Data Visualisation’ to create a floating city, my team and I decided to focus on the city of Venice. Our starting point within this project was to gather statistical information on the area.

Many of these tables/ information has been based on the information shared on the site ‘A view on cities’.
