Call for book chapters – Endangered Heritage Sites: from eidotypes to enriched representations and design solutions


“Endangered Heritage Sites: From eidotypes to enriched representations and design solutions” call for book chapters


A new and promising editorial project titled “Endangered Heritage Sites: From eidotypes to enriched representations and design solutions” is launched and the call for book chapters is now open.

The book delves into the potential of digital surveying methodologies to decode and analyse cultural heritage data. Semantic segmentation, deep learning, heritage building information modelling (HBIM), and 3D point clouds enable the exploration of the intricate layers that constitute endangered heritage sites.

By critically examining these methodologies, the book includes real-world case studies that shed light on heritage sites facing threats from anthropogenic disasters and natural hazards.

These contributions aim to unveil hidden narratives, safeguard collective values and reshape perspectives on cultural heritage in the digital era.

Editors: Stefania Stellacci, Serdar Aydin

Keywords: Text mining; Semantic data source; Cultural Heritage; Heritage Building Information Modelling; Digital age; Heritage at risk.
