Abstract

Cultural heritage is a precious asset that attributes a specificity belonging to a region or country. Cultural heritage does not stop at material artifacts but also includes traditions or living expressions transmitted from generation to generation. The richness of the cultural heritage should be preserved and developed as it plays a major role in the social and economic field of the region. Although often threatened, tangible and intangible cultural heritage is essential for maintaining cultural diversity in the face of increasing globalization. The processes of globalization have widened the space for daily relationships, whether social, economic, cultural or political. Knowing one's cultural heritage promotes intercultural dialogue and thus makes it possible to trace collective identities through traditional reference points. The new possibilities offered by the information society and the emergence of new technologies make it possible to safeguard and disseminate knowledge beyond the usual traditional representations. The digitisation of heritage makes it possible to offer not only virtual reality tourist tour applications, but also applications for sharing scientific knowledge. As part of this research project conducted in Tataouine, we applied an interdisciplinary approach to develop theoretical and practical models of the digitization of heritage around the conservation and dissemination of knowledge and know-how while addressing social and economic issues and concerns.
