artifact description
This project focused on the study of public transportation and pedestrian mobility in the city of Venice. Venice’s unique infrastructure along with its high tourism numbers makes mobility an ongoing challenge for pedestrians. Adapting and utilizing the level of service measurement system, our group collected, formatted, and analyzed data to predict future levels of pedestrian congestion in the city. Our group also developed a web-application to facilitate pedestrian’s use of Venice’s water-based public transportation system.
