Author: Giordano, Andrea (et al)
Record created on 02/16/17
Description: London-New York: Routledge, 2017. 24cm., hardcover, 154pp. 33 illus.
Summary: Visualizing Venice engages with the variety of disciplines and analytical methods generated by technologies such as GIS mapping and historical cartography, databases, 3D images, video animations, prototyped models, and applications for mobile devices and the web. The essays demonstrate how the new methodologies generated by technology can change and inform the way historians think and work. Visualizing Venice provides both the theory and practice of new work in collaborative Digital Humanities; it is a model for how to interpret, represent, teach and promote knowledge of a city as space in time.
