Workshop Title: Sustaining Built Heritage; Internet of Things, Remote Sensed and Big Data

Visual Analytics of Built Cultural Heritage for Quality of life, Social and Economic Welfare


Workshop theme, but not limited to:

Big Data challenges Built Heritage

● Data Science solution to sustaining and preserving Local Heritage

● Appropriate real-time / rich datasets, analysing the conjunction of occupied built heritage and its condition, with occupant incomes and wellbeing, including Remote Sensed / Crowd Sourced / IOT Datasets

● Role of Data Science for conservation measures

● Mapping and Analysing indices of multiple deprivation against Sustainable Built Heritage, and Identifying appropriate Climate Change mitigation and adaptation measures, including Renewable Energy, to inform, engage key decision makers and funders

● The Internet of Things / Internet of Sensors and its implications for data collection. Reducing cost of sensors and data capture devices, emerging standards, security and privacy risks. open data and crowd-sourced datasets

● Filling in gaps in data, crowd sourcing, and information collection via data collection portal. Other resources, e.g. advertisements for property rentals input into analysis of affordability and income, and value for landlords and management to justify refurbishment, adaptation


Remotes Sensing for Built Heritage

● Available and imminent Remote Sensed (e.g. Copernicus Sentinel Satellite) Datasets and information that can be processed from these, e.g. Climate Change impacts, and Building Heights via InSAR. Processing challenges. Open source, open standard solutions.


The trends and challenges of Sustaining Occupied Built Heritage

● The predicted impacts of Climate Change, in addition to manmade (e.g. fire, pollution, waste etc.) and natural disasters (e.g. earthquakes and rockslides). Analysis of the situation in specific  heritage sites in general.


Renewable Energy,  resources, and challenges

● Sustainable retrofit and refurbishment approaches. UK Heritage Energy Efficiency analysis and its applicability to Egypt

● Application of IoT applications to Occupied Built Heritage and Sustainability  mitigation

● Development of data collection portal for general & specific sites for input by public, experts and other stake holders

● Plans to use OPEN DATA and Big Data tools to analyse factors affecting the sustainability of the Heritage sites. A new opening for multidisciplinary collaboration
