Special Edition: Digital Solutions for Subterranean Heritage
Heritage (ISSN 2571-9408) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal of cultural and natural heritage science published quarterly by MDPI.
Subterranean heritage is diverse in form and function and presents unique challenges in both dry and submerged portions of caves. This issue will explore digital approaches to recording and visualizing subterranean environments that witnessed human activity across time and space. Topics could include (but are not limited to): multi-modal and multi-scalar methodologies; UAV-based imaging in GPS-denied environments; underwater survey and mapping; SLAM-based laser scanning; specialized photographic and photogrammetric techniques; GIS applications; and novel ways to record and incorporate intangible phenomena, such as sound. The issue recognizes the complementary role that technology can play in the world of cave archaeology.
