Sistema de Información para Patrimonio Histórico

Juan Carlos Torres, F. Soler, P. Cano, Alejandro León, V. Luzón, Domingo Martín


Geographic information systems (GIS) allow us to manage information related to a territory in an efficient and flexible way. Management of information concerning cultural heritage presents a set of requirements which are similar to those. In processes such as documentation, restoration and preservation it is necessary to locate a wealth of information on the surface of the model on which we are working, not only allowing editing and displaying it, but even analysing such information.
This paper presents a novel design of an information system for cultural heritage that provides the functionality described above, which starting from some ideas and working methods borrowed from GIS has adapted these ideas to representations commonly used in the field of cultural heritage.
