An idea of the world heritage is at the stake of failing to preserve itself appears obsolete. Regardless of the attempts of historians and preservationists in keeping still the culture, structures, and documents, all with the use of the present technological tools, it still looks vulnerable.
This is when the question of what exactly is the role of technology in preserving human heritage as a whole would come in. Keeping of records and files relevant in preserving history, you cannot discount the fact that the latest manner of recording details is more prone to lose, among others.
Now, information about the preservation of the way humans live their lives in a highly technological world is either kept and stored in a well-protected facility. Just the same, images and photos are either made immortal as possible, just so the same stay as it is overtime.
Here are some roles adopted by technology in maintaining human civilization:
Books and Recording Files need not be bulky anymore and the storage of this information is no longer a difficult problem. The digital world has come to terms with smaller storage ideas and eventually have it for easy access in the future at any time and anywhere. In fact, you can simply save all you wish to record in even the smallest storage drive.
Minus the enhancements and filters of photos and images, today’s technology was enabled to mimic the exact nature of the world’s important places and events.
The tracking process of the historical heritage had been opened up and well-traced by simply using quick timelines. Capturing the real and actual scenario is all anybody would need to see our heritage.
From the moment a world heritage is recognized until its present condition, a file with a detailed record of everything that took place until the time a location or event ends or continued its roundabouts, there is a technological tool made exclusively to take care of the tracking. Time and date, details are well marked in this case, with notable points in technology.s
While it used to be very complicated to preserve critical parts of history, there has been a better interpretation of this today. While most would think the 3D recording is a great risk now that digital preservation has started to rule the path of preservation of these records. In short, there is a better interpretation of these types of file keeping.
Updating the list every now and then, and attaching some proof of existence is no longer a struggle among preservationists of today’s time. Saving records and backing them up is even easier when compared to a few decades back when heavy and bulky record keeping has been an imperative necessity.
For the benefit of the future generation, today’s preservation of the world heritage is played along well with the technological utilities designed and specifically commissioned to maintain the existing and real-time happenings.
