Through maps and animated visualizations, “The Consumed City” narrates a spatial investigation of tourism in Venice. It harnesses pre-pandemic data on lodging (6,642 Airbnb listings, InsideAirbnb), dining (997 restaurants, TripAdvisor), and shopping (226 stores, Google Points of Interest). The project presents maps and spatial analytics to shed light on the complexity of tourism dynamics in the lagoon city. By leveraging by-product geospatial datasets, “The Consumed City” acts as a data-driven policy-making tool to advance place-specific policies in cities “consumed” by overtourism.
