Special Issue "Cultural Heritage Mapping and Observation"
A special issue of ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (ISSN 2220-9964).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 October 2021.
Cultural Heritage and Humanities in general have always cautiously exploited technological advances. In the last 10 or 15 years, the rapid progress of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has provided numerous tools which have enabled us to change traditional Cultural Heritage practice. Satellite, aerial, and terrestrial digital sensors give the opportunity to archaeologists and conservation experts to completely change their everyday practice. This has happened in all stages, from archaeological research to documenting archaeological excavations and managing monuments and artefacts.
Archaeological prospection, LiDAR point cloud processing, aerial imagery, and satellite remote sensing assist in locating, observing, and mapping Cultural Heritage sites at small scales. On the other hand, aerial UAV photography from low altitudes, terrestrial imagery, and laser scanning supported by classical surveying techniques enable mapping of Cultural Heritage at large scales. In this Special Issue, papers highlighting innovations and interesting implementations of contemporary technologies on the above broad areas are welcome. In this effort, we would like to promote internationality, capacity building, interdisciplinarity, innovative methods, and interesting applications on Cultural Heritage assets, be they tangible or intangible, large or small.
Innovations may concern areas such as 3D reconstructions, virtual reality, digital documentation of archaeological excavations, archaeological prospections, cultural heritage management systems, and digital data processing.
