This project, Toward a Dynamic Atlas, created a prototype for the Osservatorio Naturalistico della Laguna of an online dynamic atlas for the Venetian lagoon. This dynamic atlas possesses a species catalog, distribution maps for the birds of the lagoon, and a bilingual interface. A series of recommendations were made to the Osservatorio pertaining to which maps in the atlas would lend themselves to our dynamic system.
