Abstract

The results of research in the field of forms and methods of preserving and increasing the historical and cultural heritage in Rostov-on-Don present in this article. The list of objects of cultural heritage of Rostov-on-Don includes more than 600 items, including objects of history, art, architecture, and urban planning, among which are monuments of federal, regional, and local (municipal) significance and objects of valuable historical and urban planning environment. As part of the study, the geoinformation system “Monuments, memorable places and memorials in Rostov-on-Don” was developed. The main goal of this GIS is to provide a wide range of the public (including researchers and students) with access to georeferenced data. The information basis of the system is represented by data on the location of cultural heritage objects, information about objects, as well as photographs and extended reference data about objects. Archival and bibliographic information about the monuments has been processed, checked, and entered the database. To accomplish the tasks, the following software was chosen—Excel, ArcGis Pro, ArcGis Online. The choice of software products is due to the availability of licensed software and experience in the field of GIS creation. GIS is implemented in two versions—local (loading the initial data and preparing for publication on the Internet) and the Internet version (creating a web map with the ability to make changes and replenish the database, as well as create a web application “Monuments, memorable places and memorials in Rostov-on-Don”). The developed application allows you to assess the state of cultural heritage objects, allows you to get acquainted with research on the monuments and memorable places included in the database, to determine the direction and prospects of scientific research, to follow the dynamics of the process, consider new and forgotten objects of historical and cultural heritage.
