Abstract. Since the digital technologies emerge, digital heritage has become an integral part of the world's cultural heritage under the leadership of UNESCO. With the development of digitization and accumulation of data, the digital information processing system for cultural heritage keeps updating. However, there still exist the problems of low information integration degree and weak information sharing ability, severely restricting the promotion and integration of cultural heritage and society. This paper proposes a digital cultural heritage cloud platform, where basic data service, knowledge service, engineering application, visual exhibition were realized through HTTP request. This platform completely encapsulated a large number of cultural heritage data processing algorithms. Accordingly, a cultural heritage data management system, a cultural heritage knowledge construction and application system, a cultural heritage display, analysis and evaluation system, and a cultural heritage microenvironment index monitoring system were embedded in this platform. In addition, the platform provided API for professional customized development to provide effective support. This platform can be flexibly adapted and extended, laying solid foundation for digital information sharing of cultural heritage.
