Cultural heritage is the legacy and the archive of mankind's identity, an account of peoples' advancement and achievement through time. The assorted variety in this legacy is enormously rich and mirrors the extravagance of human development through the ages. Cultural heritage can be said that it encodes knowledge, which in turn renders it a profound wellspring of learning. In the entirety of its structures, either tangible or not, it has been perceived as a valuable element and, thus, noteworthy endeavors and assets have been apportioned to its protection and interpretation. Natural sciences and engineering have contributed over the ongoing decades, in such an amount that the fringes among science and art in this domain began to obscure. This area is now a wide field of research with noteworthy advancements for various research questions, including digitization, documentation, examination, visualization, interpretation, dissemination, learning, storytelling, administration and sustainability.
Perceiving the cross-disciplinary elements in this area, this special issue centers around the use of engineering and data innovation in the aid of cultural heritage and its sustainability.
