Condition Assessments

ASOR CHI conducts condition assessments to obtain detailed data on damage, risks, and threats to heritage sites.

Relevant data is gathered using techniques developed by ASOR CHI and other cultural heritage organizations from ground level and low-level aerial photo-documentation, high-resolution satellite imagery, and more intensive ground-based survey assessments. All of this information is compiled by the ASOR CHI Conservation Team into an overall summary of the current known condition of the site. Within that assessment, the conservation team also assesses the ongoing threat to the site and ranks its rapid assessment priority using multiple factors.
