Cultural Heritage to Be Monitored Online Via Satellite

Cultural Heritage to Be Monitored Online Via Satellite

Iran’s cultural heritage will come under online monitoring via satellite by the end of the next fiscal year in March 2018, said Mohammad Hassan Talebian, cultural heritage deputy at Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHHTO).
ICHHTO signed a memorandum of understanding with the Information Technology Organization (ITO), affiliated to the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, to cover museums, museum sites and cultural heritage of the country under the online monitoring program.
“Currently, museum sites are being monitored by video surveillance and photography; but based on the agreements with ITO, the museums will be monitored online via satellite from the next fiscal year,” Mehr News Agency quoted Talebian as saying, on the sidelines of Elecomp 2016, the International Exhibition of Electronics, Computers and IT, held from December 15-18 at Tehran Permanent Fairgrounds.
The planned monitoring system will cover museums and their sites, as well as a total of 32,000 cultural heritage properties.
“Once implemented, the digital system will also allow users across the world to visit Iran’s museums and cultural heritage sites online.
Presently, there are 32,000 cultural heritage monuments registered in the country. Their online information will be provided along with maps and graphs. “For this purpose, we have initiated the Comprehensive Information Program on Historical Sites in cooperation with the Statistical Center of Iran. The information at the center’s disposal will be useful for the program.”
Sa’dabad Cultural Complex in Tehran has already come under online satellite monitoring as a pilot project. Once funds are provided, other museum sites will be equipped with online monitoring.
“We are collaborating with the Ministry of Agriculture Jihad and the Department of Environment to accelerate the implementation of smart systems.”
The online monitoring system will also serve as a smart guide to help acquire information on the cultural heritage properties of the country,” Talebian said.
