Abstract

The starting point for the researches about a documentation system for digital reconstruction as a contribution to the preservation of knowledge within the digital cultural heritage was the Charta “For the Preservation of Digital Cultural Heritage” issued by UNESCO in 2003. Digital reconstruction is a digitally based reproduction of a no longer visible or no longer existent building,urban complex, structural environment or events influencing structural environment. It is based on scientific findings and other sources of human knowledge. According to this and the UNESCO Charta, digital reconstructions are regarded as part of digital cultural heritage. Based on a basic theoretical study of the science of documentation, the digital reconstruction and investigation of past reconstruction projects an appropriate system of documentation was developed. It is called Four-Level-System and it includes all necessary levels of a digital reconstruction project and leads to a complete, transparent and editable documentation.The Four-Level-System as a common documentation system for digital reconstructions was transferred into a reference project the digital reconstruction of the Mausoleum of the Tang-Dynastie at Zhaoling, China, a subproject of the main project “The Digital Reconstruction of the Imperial Tombs of Xi’an”, realized at the Department of Information and Communication Technology in Architecture at Technische Universität Darmstadt. The result is a first detailed documentation of a digital reconstruction. All sources, references, background informations and the project process are shown by this documentation. This new developed methodology of documentation makes the knowledge of a digital reconstruction available for subsequent generations of researchers.The results of a digital reconstruction can thus be reviewed at any time and the current state of knowledge to be adapted.
