Digital twin (DT), is a widely used technology to manage, monitor and predict data assets for smart services. Cultural heritage (CH) requires an intelligent approach to conservation and promotion. The present intelligent CH frameworks are not able to encompass the full range of CHs and their connections. While the semantic network is suitable for describing information such as CHs with complex and tightly linked data, thus, this paper proposes a culture heritage digital twin (CHDT) system framework incorporating the semantic network to obtain all historical information about CHs, which are used to present and explain CHs. The CHDT system can be applied to tourism, education and entertainment, contributing to the sustainability of CHs. The paper also discusses the steps and methods for creating the CHDT system.
