Keywords: Built heritage, Digital documentation, Natural disasters, Terrestrial laser scanning, Photogrammetry
Abstract. This paper will go into further detail on pressures and policies faced by the archaeological site of San Clemente’s caretakers, that affect the sites preservation. Including the protection of the riverbed along the fragile coast line represented by the masonry portion of the thermal bath’s foundation which is directly in contact with the water. Being the destiny of the site to be gradually eroded by flooding, digital documentation can play a significant role in documenting the sites changes over time allowing for easy analysis of newly revealed elements. As in the case of the documentation of the viewable openings through the thermal masonry-pipeline during the last surveying campaign this paper will discuss the experimentation of data management through Virtual Hub. Through which past sequences of data can be made accessible to anyone who must operate on the site, and to document the state of affairs of the archaeological complex over the last few years.
