ArtMapping Venice

Link

This is a blog about building a website to bring together his­toric artworks of Venice, maps to locate the places depicted, and tools to search and sort. It is the work of three students of Digital Hu­man­it­ies at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne​—​Tania Palmieri, Ertan Kazikli and Orhan Ocal. The text is in English, heavily laced with acronyms: API, JSON, KML, XML and suchlike.

In ArtMapping Venice the authors explain their process of se­lect­ing which methods and tools to use. It is this work-in-progress aspect that makes it interesting for me​—​as well as the delights of the city and the artworks it has inspired.

A partial screenshot from the website, showing an old print of the Piazza San Marco (in the white box), overlaid on a Google Maps oblique aerial view of the place as it is now.
