Abstract (in English)

The study on the protection and reuse of cultural heritage in the world generally emphasizes that people will be able to understand the sustainable values of cultural heritage through learning and education, science and technology information, together with public participation. This study was conducted in accordance with a case study of Chiung-Lin Settlement in Kinmen County (Taiwan) to develop a Story Map display platform based on Geographic Information System (GIS). The Chiung-Lin Settlement includes 8 national monuments, 3 historic buildings, 400 traditional houses and 2 listed intangible cultural heritages. This project would like to create a digital presentation for Chiung-Lin Settlement through theme stories and people-friendly functions of which contents include maps with geospatial data, texts, 2D, 3D and panorama images, etc., to achieve goals and objectives for making the public understand and appreciate the values of cultural heritage along with public transmission. Furthermore, in order to strengthen people's use of digital technology, China University of Technology particularly cooperates with Interactive Digital Technologies, Inc. (Esri’s official distributor in Taiwan) to promote digitization and its applications in theme stories. Under this project a national competition was organized, and there were a total of 98 undergraduate student groups and 105 senior high school student groups participating in this competition. Prizes were awarded to the top 3 teams in each category. This activity could enhance students' organizational competence in theme stories and values. The display platform also revealed the importance and promotional function of education in the preservation of cultural heritage.
