Being the ICOMOS / ISPRS Committee for Documentation of Cultural Heritage, CIPA Heritage Documentation is now an international non-profit organisation that endeavours to transfer technology from the measurement and visualisation sciences to the disciplines of cultural heritage recording, conservation and documentation. CIPA thus acts as a bridge between the producers of heritage documentation and the users of this information.
CIPA’s mission is twofold:
- to encourage the development of principles and practices for the recording, documentation and information management for all aspects of cultural heritage;
- to support and encourage the development of specialised tools and techniques in support of these activities
