Over the past few years, a remarkable increase has occurred in the use of visual and digital techniques for the research, documentation, management, presentation and communication of cultural heritage. Printed, video and audio media, as well as “New Media” got a role of a main measures for preserving and affirming of cultural heritage, but and as a main tools for promoting of cultural heritage values as touristic products. This has drastically transformed the way we capture, store, process, represent and disseminate information.
Using of “old” and/or “new” media became a necessary tools in educational process related with anthropology, archeology, history, art and other humanities and social sciences. Digital humanities, digital anthropology, 3-D archeology and other interdisciplinary studies increased an interest among many scholars, researchers, students, museum workers, IT programmers, 3D (re)constructors etc.
Cultural heritage, media and tourism have a lot of common contact points, interactions and complements. All fields are devoted on explanation and presentation of cultural values of society. Interdisciplinary approach among these realms is giving more qualitative results especially on touristic offers and creation of touristic products. This is extremely important in a process of indication and mapping of anthropogenic and other touristic attractions, as well as on presentation of cultural values through different types of media.
