Wyeld, S. Kenderdine, and M. ): VSMM 2007, LNCS 4820, pp. 24–34, 2008. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2008 A Conversation on the Efficacies of the Game Engine to Address Notions 25 different ways over time and by different cultures. For Western culture, space was once finite and divided between heaven and earth. Many spaces were considered sacred. Sacred spaces are those spaces that defy the logic of scientific definition, of quantifiable space, such as, the space of religious worship (churches, synagogues, temples, and so on); the space demarcated as a place of socio-cultural importance related to historical events; the homes of celebrities, and so on.

In particular, the notion of sacredness in a simulational space was broached because of comments from the lecture about the apparent inappropriateness of climbing atop a large rock in Vincent Serico’s World. This led to mention of the recent case regarding Telstra’s insensitive use of Uluru as an icon to promote itself in Second Life. What differentiates the two examples was that Telstra did not have the appropriate permissions to use the sacred Uluru, whereas the DSL project has explicit permission to include sacred spaces in its 3D reconstructions of specific ‘country’.

Currently, several international initiatives have tackle this problem, allowing new approaches to be transmitted to experts and heritage organizations, among these experiences: • UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre Development of a World Heritage Information Management capacity in the Arab States: this project seek to address the need of information systems applied to the protection of WH sites in the Arab region, there were two seminars organized for experts; • ICCROM’s Athar courses: Documentation and Management of Heritage Sites in the Arab Region: courses about the role of information in site management, using role play exercises; • World Monuments Fund – Getty Conservation Institute Iraq Cultural Heritage Initiative: the establishment of a heritage information system for rapid- Digital Tools for Heritage Information Management and Protection 43 assessment of sites in Iraq, involving training courses in heritage information capturing, storing and management.
