Keywords: Documentation and Monitoring, Historic Streets, Mobile Digital Application

Abstract. Conservation planning for historic streets, where heritage preservation and the modernization of life converge, has been playing a fundamental role. As technology is increasingly changing every aspect of our contemporary life, conservation is also blessed with new opportunities, and how to enhance the effectiveness of the plans by means of emerging technological measures is a new question. Starting from the conservation of Kunming Nanqiang Historic Street, a tentative model for an integrated mobile application is proposed based considerations of the user demands from conservation planner, property manager, tenant and visitor. Tentative applications include heritage interpretation and presentation, enhanced visitor experience, and management system, which are to build up an innovative chain of “heritage research – management planning – digital support” for the purpose of community revitalization.
