Development of computer assisted teaching and learning, transfer of techniques and technologies used in cultural heritage documentation between all interested parties
Its main purpose is the improvement of all methods for surveying of cultural monuments and sites, specially by synergy effects gained by the combination of methods under special consideration of photogrammetry with all its aspects, as an important contribution to recording and perceptual monitoring of cultural heritage, to preservation and restoration of any valuable architectural or other cultural monument, object or site, as a support to architectural, archaeological and other art-historical research.
ISPRS and ICOMOS created CIPA because they both believe that a monument can be restored and protected only when it has been fully measured and documented and when its development has been documented again and again, i.e. monitored, also with respect to its environment, and stored in proper heritage information and management systems
CIPA bases its activities on the personal involvement of the people.
Therefore, if you want to help us to support CIPA activities, please download CIPA's brochure and diffuse it among your friends, colleagues and potentially interested organizations and people.
