Dear Reader,


CIPA Heritage Documentation is a dynamic international organization that has twin responsibilities: keeping up with technology and ensuring its usefulness for cultural heritage conservation, education and dissemination.  This dual role is exhibited in our parent organizations - ICOMOS - International Council of Monuments and Sites and ISPRS - International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.  Science and Culture.


We accomplish these two sometimes conflicting goals in a variety of ways, through:


Encouraging and promoting  the development of principles and good practices for recording, documentation and information management of cultural heritage;

Leading and participating  in international training programs for conservation and informatics professionals, students and site personnel;

Advising  government bodies, regional authorities, non-profit groups and institutions on tools, technology and methods for using technology;

Sponsoring  an international network of professionals in both the fields of technology and cultural heritage for scientific research but also applied practical experience;

Providing  a platform with our bi-annual congress for the exchange of ideas, best practices as well as scientific research papers.




CIPA Heritage Documentation movie allows audience to realize the aims, mission and activities of this International Scientific Committee of ICOMOS/ISPRS for the Documentation of Cultural Heritage. This movie displays some interesting scientific activities carried out by CIPA members when documenting cultural heritage by means of photogrammetric, laser scanning and thermo-graphic surveys.












The ICOMOS Scientific Committee, CIPA Heritage Documentation, is proud to present this first in a
series of publications presenting state-of-the-art research and applications in the discipline of Cultural
Heritage documentation.
The intention of this publication is to record and archive the progress in documentation techniques
and products during the two-year cycle of the CIPA symposia.
