Abstract (in English)

Significance of cultural heritage is often inseparable from their settings, or significance often reside in settings. Settings contain physical features as well as non-physical features: physical features include complicated natural landform such as valleys, water body, or forest, as well as man-made features like buildings, bridges, roads, or farm lands. Non-physical features are human activities and eco-systems produced by suck activities as farming, fishing, festival etc. How can we manage and understand such complicated space as “settings”? One of the keys is the “three-dimensionality” of settings. We need to manage and understand settings and the relationships among various factors which settings have in 3D space. Our project team developed a web-based 3D GIS system to manage and understand settings. The system allows data analysis to be done in 2D or 3D GIS system. Heritage managers can freely move around 3D space and check analysed data in 3D space to manage the area. The system is also meant to be used for public outreach. It enables people to visually understand the 3D space and virtually interact with 3D space to find out the significance of the settings.
