  • 2,194 walkways averaging 2 meters wide
  • Daily Tourists 2010: 54,87775% increase by 2040: ~35,000,000
  • Strains transportation and wears out physical infrastructureOnly 2 million Venetians throughout history, and 24 million tourists a year – huge wear on the physical infrastructure, all of those people walking over the same bridges/roads every day
  • Traffic makes normal travel impossible - Safety Concerns. Outliers now becoming the norm.Can’t plan for – Reactionary instead of proactiveSays to like show a graph that the summers a peak time because like at that time I’m explaingwhats becoming a norm cuz I want to talk about the tourist forcastAdd graph so that I remember to add it later comprendecuz I will forget
  • Put pictures of police, One Way Bridges, temporary bridges, etc.
  • A model would provide users with accurate pedestrian traffic predictionsWould allow for preventative measuresUses limited data to provide a comprehensive picture of future trafficApplying what has been done with automobiles to pedestrians
  • RECAP
  • Model will Predict Traffic and fill in data gapsThis information can provide information proactively for dispatching local authorities, creating pedestrian barriers and one ways, and if available to the general populous could allow individuals to reroute themselves to help alleviate traffic congestion
