This became known at the presentation of a pilot project to create a 3D model of the mausoleum of Ismail Samani, on October 20 in Tashkent.
The pilot project of a digital copy of one of the main historical sights of Bukhara is presented by the participants of the consortium of South Korean companies New Layer Co. Ltd, LX Korea Land and Geospatial Informatix Corporation.
The project was created on the basis of a grant from the National Agency for the Development of Information Technologies of South Korea with a total cost of 150 thousand US dollars using Digital Twin technologies, 3D and geographical data, which will be available in the Google Maps.
For reference: The “Digital Twin” technology, widely used in the field of urban planning, cultural heritage and archeology, allows you to model, monitor, diagnose and predict the condition of cultural heritage objects without physical impact. With the help of a 3D model, you can move around the object online.
Following the meeting, which was attended by Deputy Minister of Tourism and Sports of Uzbekistan Abdulaziz Akkulov and representatives of a consortium of South Korean companies New Layer Co. Ltd, LX Korea Land and Geospatial Informatix Corporation, a joint work plan was signed to complete a pilot project to create a 3D copy of the mausoleum of Ismail Samani.
The main point of the agreement will be the launch of the Uzbekistan Digital Heritage Platform with the creation of 3D copies of the historical part of Bukhara and the installation of an online monitoring system at the cultural heritage sites of the city.
The total amount of the project is 6 million US dollars.
In addition, a special staff for the digitalization of historical and archaeological sites in Uzbekistan will be created under the Cultural Heritage Agency, with full all necessary equipment, which in the future will independently digitalize historical and cultural heritage sites, archaeological sites and add them to the digital platform.
The authors of the project note the advantage of the digital platform in its accessibility for citizens and specialists. Citizens will be able to get acquainted with high-precision digital 3D copies of objects during online tourism and use them in conducting scientific research.
