Applying a Landscape Perspective to Digital Cultural Heritage

Digital cultural heritage is shifting the focus from architectural settings to the landscape scale, with an overarching goal to improve how the recording, interpretation and storage of heritage information are conducted making it more detailed, complete, sustainable and accessible. This Special Issue has the goal to address the theoretical and technical challenges of digital cultural heritage through a diversity of topics that range from ethics to policies; from the documentation of natural territorial infrastructures to the conservation of wildlife habitats: an invitation to develop new ways of imagining heritage and its relationship to societies.
