Heyuan Garden, the largest existing private classical garden in Yangzhou, China, is the subject of this book, which offers a complete description and representation of the garden’s overall characteristics and its contributing components. It contains a wealth of maps, aerial photographs, and diagrams which are published here for the first time. Notably, this book uses high-precision point cloud images as its main graphic method in order to convey more garden detail than traditional, two-dimensional line graphics. Led by the ICOMOS-IFLA International Scientific Committee on Cultural Landscapes (ISCCL), the Garden Heritage Digital Document (GHDD) project was set up in 2018 to highlight representative cases of Chinese classical gardens, adopt international cultural heritage archive frameworks and standards, and use new digital technologies to establish high-quality heritage archives to make up for the shortcomings of existing classical garden records. This is the first publication of the GHDD project.
