This DATABASE has been produced by the Maldives Heritage Survey to systematically inventory and document endangered cultural heritage in the Maldives through digital photography, 3D scanning and GIS. The materials documented here are critically endangered, facing both natural and human threats that jeopardise the survival and accessibility of historical information for this vital node in pre-modern economic and religious networks spanning the Indian Ocean world and beyond.
