Combining on-site and off-site analysis: towards a new paradigm for cultural heritage surveys

Violette Abergel, Kevin Jacquot, Livio De Luca, Philippe Veron


In recent decades, cultural heritage survey practices have significantly evolved due to the increasing use of digitization tools providing quick and easy access to faithful copies of study objects. While these digital data have clear advantages, especially in terms of geometric characterization, they also introduce a paradigm shift by outsourcing ex situ most of the analysis activities. This break between real and virtual working environments now raises new issues, both in terms of data dispersion and knowledge correlation in multidisciplinary teams. Benefiting from the fields of information systems and augmented reality, we proposed an integrated approach allowing the fusion of geometric, visual and semantic features in a single platform. Today, this proof of concept leads to new perspectives for the production of semantically enriched digital data. In this paper, we intend to explore the different possibilities in terms of implementation and their benefits for cultural heritage survey.
