The UPR 2002 MAP was created the 1st of January 2024 – This website is still under construction and might be modified in the coming weeks.

The MAP laboratory is a Proprietary Research Unit (UPR) of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), Humanities and Social Sciences, created in 2024 and a descendant of a Joint Research Unit of the same name, UMR CNRS/MC 3495 MAP. Its activities intersect two emerging interdisciplinary fields, heritage sciences and data sciences, and focus on the design and development of ‘highly digital’ methods for exploring and analysing heritage assets. One of the distinctive traits of the laboratory’s approach is a recurrent to-and-fro between theoretical, methodological and technological research and the implementation of concrete solutions in the form of research prototypes open to academic and societal partnerships.


the Notre-Dame de Paris arch reconstruction study (T4-T9) aims at formulating knowledge about a disappeared past (T1), the arch before its destruction (T2). T[N] corresponds to the time of the reconstruction study activities.
