The “Place Knowledge: Organizing Data on the Venetian Lagoon Park” project, sponsored by the Osservatorio Naturalistico, created a system to easily and inexpensively update information on the northern lagoon to supplement the Atlante della Laguna di Venezia (Atlas of the Lagoon of Venice). The northern lagoon was divided into, identifiable, morphologically homogeneous sections to assist data collection. Relazione di Valutazione di Incidenza Ambientale (V.Inc.A Reports) were examined for reusable data, and citizen monitoring programs were suggested for the lagoon.
