Conventions and Emerging Standards

The London Charter for the Computer-based Visualisation of Cultural Heritage

SEE THE LONDON CHARTER WEBSITE FOR FULL TEXT IN ENGLISH, GERMAN, ITALIAN, POLISH and SPANISH.

Principle 1Implementation

The principles of the London Charter are valid wherever computer-based visualisation is applied to the research or dissemination of cultural heritage.

Principle 2 – Aims and Methods

A computer-based visualisation method should normally be used only when it is the most appropriate available method for that purpose.

Principle 3 – Research Sources

In order to ensure the intellectual integrity of computer-based visualisation methods and outcomes, relevant research sources should be identified and evaluated in a structured and documented way.

Principle 4 – Documentation

Sufficient information should be documented and disseminated to allow computer-based visualisation methods and outcomes to be understood and evaluated in relation to the contexts and purposes for which they are deployed.

Principle 5 – Sustainability

Strategies should be planned and implemented to ensure the long-term sustainability of cultural heritage-related computer-based visualisation outcomes and documentation, in order to avoid loss of this growing part of human intellectual, social, economic and cultural heritage.

Principle 6 – Access

The creation and dissemination of computer-based visualisation should be planned in such a way as to ensure that maximum possible benefits are achieved for the study, understanding, interpretation, preservation and management of cultural heritage.
