WHAT IS IT

WHAT IS IT
¿que és?

Atlas of materials pathology is, at the moment, a Project. It is a Project born with the aim to cover a space of knowledge on the alterations that can affect the materials of our cultural heritage.

Atlas of materials pathology is a project created by Cetec-patrimoni, with the collaboration of several institutions. But its intention is that it would become a continuous growing project, thanks to all the related professionals desiring to participate.

The Atlas is organised in individual files where names, description and images of the alterations that affect the cultural heritage materials are shown. The files contain all the fields that are required to justify the name of the pathology.

The Atlas objective is to contribute to the knowledge and diffusion of all the issues related to the degradation of materials and thus to their conservation. The establishment of a common language helps to normalize the communication between the different disciplines involved in the conservation process. Likewise, it aims to be an educational tool for professionals and a site for experiences exchange.

If you believe that science and the world in general moves forward based on small actions to be shared, we think you will like this proposal, and what is most important, you will take part to improve it and make it honourable. The purpose is to become an “atlas” in permanent construction.
