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.
