Multi-temporal three-dimensional (3D) reconstructions arefundamental for the preservation and maintenance of all forms of tangibleCultural Heritage (CH) and often provide the basis for decisions related tointerventions and promotion. Introducing the fourth dimension of time into 3Dgeometric modelling of real-world data allows the creation of a multi-temporalrepresentation of a site to plan maintenance and promotion. This chapter aims toprovide a comprehensive approach for CH time-varying representations, tointegrate heterogeneous information derived from a range of sources to helpinform understanding of temporal aspects of change across different workingscales and environments. Two landscape-scale study cases, Hadrian’s Wall (UK)and Milan Roman Circus (Italy), are presented based on a methodologicalapproach for CH time-varying representations proposed by the JPI-CH EuropeanProject Cultural Heritage Through Time (CHT2). CHT2 aims to provide a new setof tools and working methods to support the study of the evolution of CH sites.
