The project aimed to aide the Environmental Department of the City of Venice with the management and maintenance of public trees through deriving and field testing a surveillance methodology. An interactive database and set of thematic maps were created to analyze and store collected data. The result was an extensive wealth of previously unavailable information and a technique to identify and assess trees and their economic and environmental value. The derived process was a starting point for Venetian maintenance projects.
