Piedmont heritage

#piedmontheritage, Final project for BIG DIVE 2
A project by: Marco Sors, Maximilien Rzepka, Andrea Peretti

“Regional Law 34/95 – Preservation and enhancement of the historical places”.
Starting from the data on the historical locations, the group created a visualization with an highlight on the major points of interest in Piedmont.
The result is a browsable and interactive web page including a geolocalized cultural heritage map.
