A Venice Project Center 25th Anniversary Project.                          

Bridges Visualization

This application displays the location of all of the bridges in Venice, as well as their outline and information on a selected bridge. The map also displays which bridges are passable (green) or impassable (red) for boats of various heights at different sea levels. The sea level on the map defaults to the most recent water height measurement.
