This talk presents the results of a study that reveals the patterns of hidden values in cultural landscapes and offers an innovative method for the collection, analysis and visualisation of individual “stories”, using remote survey methods combined with Artificial Intelligence to create deep maps of attachment. This dataset, integrated into the traditional heritage datasets and assessment framework, can provide the people-centred background or insider knowledge necessary to facilitate sustainable, inclusive and transparent heritage management practices.
