Years of activity have allowed us to collect a considerable amount of data concerning the city.
This data is the basis for the operation of many services useful to the community, and are used daily by applications and predictive models. We are proud of our Open approach, giving access to our data in order to support and enhance the quality of life in the city.

Students'

Project

Every year since 1988, WPI students have carried out relevant projects in order to solve issues and problems of the city of Venice with a scientific and technological approach. In 30 years of activity, the projects have covered a wide range of topics, from conservation of cultural heritage to in-depth analysis of the hydrogeological data of the lagoon. Many of these projects have inspired and started the creation of Venetian start-ups.
