  title={Measurements and indicators of heritage as development},
  author={Donovan Rypkema and Caroline S. Cheong},
Heritage is increasingly defined as an economic development tool. However, in order to conclusively gauge heritage-related economic impacts, measurements, tools and methodologies must be implemented and evaluated. This paper provides a survey of recent methodological approaches for measuring the economics of heritage as development. Examples of evaluative approaches from academia, practitioners and international institutions are included.
