Digital Workflows for the Conservation and Sustainability of Historic Places

Digital Workflows for the Conservation and Sustainability of Historic Places

The documentation of historic places and landscapes plays a key role in the management of cultural heritage. Information obtained during documentation will guide the maintenance, monitoring and ongoing conservation of heritage places, support interventions and the rehabilitation of historic fabric, and provide material for interpretation and dissemination to a wider audience. In extreme cases, where sites are undergoing radical change, have disappeared altogether, or are inaccessible, documentation may serve as the only means through which a site can be understood.

The Comité International de la Photogrammétrie Architecturale (CIPA) was founded in 1968 to promote and support the important work of heritage documentation. Working alongside the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), CIPA facilitates the application of measurement technology to the disciplines of heritage documentation and recording. CIPA’s mission is to encourage the development of principles and practices and the creation of specialized tools and techniques, for the recording, documentation and information management for all aspects of cultural heritage.

This eBook considers the development of digital workflows for the documentation and conservation of historic places. It was curated using a small selection of exemplary papers from those submitted to the 26th biennial CIPA symposium “Digital Workflows for Heritage Conservation”, held from August 28 to September 1, 2017, in Ottawa, Canada."
