Venice’s urban morphology does not allow for autonomous movement for people with impaired mobility, a problem which has been taken on in recent years via a number of projects which have improved the potential for movement along pedestrian and water-based routes.
This paper presents the results of research which, starting from a study of previously implemented changes, has mapped the town in GIS environment and planned a mobility support application which can be personalised to user needs. The tool is designed to help users wanting to move around Venice choose a pedestrian and ferry itinerary which takes account of fixed obstacles and the high water phenomenon.
