Abstract (in English)

The spirit of place is the objective reality in people’s mind which gives expression to their style of life. More or less, the tangible cultural heritage located in a place could reflect the spirit of place in many ways. The information technology is the newest and the most advanced method among all the traditional and modern ones to transmit the spirit of place with unique effect, being advantageous or not. China Cultural Heritage Information and Consulting Center (CCHICC, Data Center of State Administration of Cultural Heritage) is an institution to manage and deal with all kinds of related data of tangible and intangible heritage in China. Its members have their own valuable experience while devoting themselves to discover, explain, enhance and transmit the spirit of place by utilizing the information technology.
