Recording the physical characteristics of historic and existing structures is a cornerstone of retrofit, rehabilitation, preventive maintenance, monitoring and conservation. The information produced by such work guides decision-making by property owners, site managers, public officials, and conservators. Rigorous documentation may also serve a broader purpose: over time, it becomes the primary means by which scholars and the public apprehends a site that has since changed radically or disappeared.
In times of COVID-19 pandemic, the availability of reliable documentation of existing and heritage places, in particular real-time sensors providing information can allow to prevent secondary threats such as looting, fires or other unforeseen issues when not monitoring the site.
