Venipedia-an English language data-driven wiki dedicated to VenicePublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
For the past twenty-five years the Venice Project Center has been collecting data pertaining to Venetian culture. In 2007, students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute created a wiki-style website called Venipedia, which attempted to produce a comprehensive database on every object and artifact in Venice. As of 2011, Venipedia reached over 4,500 pages. Unfortunately, the free editing capability installed to encourage contribution caused spam and inconsistencies. This project created an entirely new Venipedia by moving the old website to a different domain, transferring only exemplary pages back to the reinstalled Venipedia.org, while coordinating the addition of new data from projects this year and developing a sustainable management plan for the future growth of the site.
