Currently, a large number of cultural heritage objects around the world are deteriorating or being destroyed because of natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods, or man-made disasters, such as civil wars and vandalism. Efforts to physically preserve and maintain these objects are being conducted all over the world, and these efforts are important and, indeed, essential. On the other hand, such daily physical efforts cannot stop the sudden loss of priceless objects, as was the case when the Taliban destroyed the Bamiyan Great Buddha or when an earthquake struck the Bam ruin in Iran. Thus, we have to develop methods to record and preserve current states of these reminders of our culture.
