This chapter examines different methodologies for the use of “hyperdocuments” as a basis for revealing urban heritage environments through electronic tools. Drawing on architectural heritage in Brazil, it considers spaces which are also stages for social events and argues that hyperdocuments can be powerful tools not only to display the physical urban structure but also to demonstrate the connections which create the urban spaces inhabited by people. The chapter first looks at the problem of representing urban environments before turning to the use of informational devices in the digital representation of urban heritage.

Keywords:   Brazil, hyperdocuments, urban heritage, urban environments, informational devices, digital representation, urban spaces, electronic tools, architectural heritage
