A Venice Project Center 25th Anniversary Project.
This application displays information about the level of moto ondoso and in traffic in the Venetian canals for recent conditions as well as for periods since 2001. Colors closer to green indicate lower levels of traffic and moto ondoso, while colors closer to red indicate higher levels. It is important to note that green levels are not necessarily safe for the canals.
