Clean Oceans and Mapping our Seas: using advanced 3D digitisation technologies for preserving our cultural heritage

Human activity has irrevocably impacted our oceans, posing significant threats to both marine ecosystems and cultural heritage. The conference “Clean Oceans and Mapping our Seas” seeks to address these pressing issues by bringing together experts, stakeholders, and enthusiasts to explore innovative digital solutions and strategies that can be used to aid the documentation and interpretation of these issues on cultural heritage.

“Clean Oceans and Mapping our Seas” takes place on 19th June 2024 in Birgu, Malta. It is jointly organized by Heritage Malta and the Norwegian Museum Stavanger (MUST). Both organizations have been at the forefront of utilizing cutting-edge technology to digitize and record maritime cultural heritage. This collaboration emphasizes the shared commitment to addressing the challenges faced by our oceans and cultural heritage. The conference is hybrid and registration is free.

The conference aims to:

  • Raise awareness about the interconnection between clean oceans and the preservation of maritime cultural heritage.
  • Showcase advancements in digitization technologies for documenting underwater cultural heritage.
  • Foster collaboration and knowledge exchange among stakeholders, including museums, research institutions, and government agencies.

The conference programme is available on the conference website.

Key Themes

The central theme of the conference revolves around the intersection of clean oceans and maritime cultural heritage. The discussion will primarily center on innovative 3D digitization methods and approaches for documenting and interpreting the impacts of climate change and ocean quality on maritime cultural heritage.

Digitization and Standardization

Another core focus of the conference will be on digitization efforts and the importance of standardized methodologies. With emerging technologies such as 3D scanning and visualization, there is a need for comprehensive standards to ensure data interoperability and accessibility. The conference will facilitate discussions on synchronizing efforts with existing European projects and centralizing data aggregation platforms.
