Venetian Open Data: Providing Greater Access to the Venice Project Center's Data Resources
The Venice Project Center Open Data team’s mission was to provide greater access to the VPC’s data resources. This mission had three main objectives: to create a link between the VPC and dati.venezia.it, Venice’s Open Data website (VOD), to visualize data from the VOD and add them to the VPC website in order to connect Venice’s data to our website, and to combine datasets from both sources to show that datasets, when combined, are more valuable than individually. To create the link between the two organizations, we updated the dataset on pili portabandiera (flagstaff pedestals) and published this data to the VOD. We then used information on the Venice Connected Wi-fi network and the Internet Reporting Information System (IRIS) from dati.venzia.it to create visualizations that were uploaded to the Venice Project Center website in order to complete our second objective. To finalize our project and complete our last objective, we utilized IRIS data and VPC data on fountains to create a map showing IRIS reports pertaining to fountains around Venice.
