Heritage cities are challenged by a combination of pressures, including climate change effects, rapid urbanization and abandonment. Conversely, a plethora of new methodologies and instruments are now available, thanks to digital technologies, which hold the potential to support planning conservation of heritage cities. This study seeks to explore the applicability of digital technologies to heritage conservation planning practices, in Jordan, with a more general applicability of some findings to the larger international context. Opportunities and limitations in supporting plans for heritage conservation in heritage cities through digital technologies are discussed. This study analyses several forms of data, including secondary data, semi-structured interviews with heritage experts and focus groups. Recommendations are made to maximise the potential of digital technologies in both eliciting awareness on heritage and documenting it for the purpose of developing more robust and effective conservation plans for heritage cities.
