In most countries large urban development projects pose a challenge for organizations and individuals whose aim it is to preserve as much of the cultural heritage in the cities concerned as possible. Computational approaches are indispensable in all steps of a large urban development project because they

– assist monument protection agencies in collaboration with urban planners to find the optimal compromise in terms of urban needs and preservation of known cultural heritage.
– support the efficient documentation of monuments and archaeological sites before their destruction in the course of urban development activities
– include new and attractive methods of informing the public.
