Methodical recording and documentation of the existing form of cultural heritage is essential for its protection and conservation. Traditionally these processes have heavily depended upon rigorous measured drawings and keen human observations. Advancement in technologies are opening up new ways of data capture, processing and representation of the information. Digital tools are providing increasingly detailed and accurate information within relatively shorter time span. This webinar aims to introduce the participants to the methods of digital documentation of cultural heritage. Case studies of historic sites will be presented by the experts of techniques such as photogrammetry, laser scanning and GIS mapping. Participants will be able to understand the basics of selection and application of the digital tools with reference to the typology of the cultural heritage.
