The concept of resource management in relation to cultural heritage relies on the keeping of records as its fundamental core. A consistent approach to record keeping is necessary for the further analysis of any heritage conservation project, because without these baseline records, no direction can be taken. This Master’s thesis is focused on exploring digital heritage recording techniques and data processing workflows to aid in the conservation of built heritage sites. Three sites of varying scale, scope of work, and heritage value have been chosen to illustrate how heritage documentation practices are approached from local, national, and international perspectives, and the results that can be obtained from each. The Log Farm in Nepean, Ontario, Prince of Wales Fort in Churchill, Manitoba, and QV66: Tomb of Nefertari and KV62: Tomb of Tutankhamen in Luxor, Egypt, serve as case studies to further examine heritage recording in practice.
