In recent years, the need to preserve the heritage has become more urgent than ever. The war in the Middle East destroyed and wiped out many ancient ruins. Meanwhile, in other areas, people are also helpless against the destruction caused by natural disasters, cultural destruction, the elimination of art works as well as the lack of interest in cultural heritage. The question is whether we can do anything to prevent the loss of these precious cultural heritage in the future?
With the trend of technology development, the application of 3D scanning in projects to preserve monuments is not too strange. The appeal and novelty of this type of service is to create a virtual reality world and visualize space to recreate places that are still exist or lost.
1. How does 3D scanning help preserve the culture?
Currently, 3D technology has proven to be the most popular technology and attracts worldwide attention in the field of cultural inheritance. 3D scanning technology can be used to store, display as well as recover data.
3D scanning technology has fast measurement speed and accurate shooting ability up to 100%. Specialists can restore most heritage through computers and complete research through accurate 3D models. With 3D scanning, we can preserve images of monuments in accordance with the inherent soul. Accordingly, images are displayed on the left, right, above, below and even cover the surrounding space. Viewers not only merely observe in the plane but also can be proactive in every angle.
Using 3D scanning preserves monuments no longer takes too much time! For a space scanner requiring high level of details, it takes less than 48 hours to scan and return the space. Moreover, these data are easily stored and backed up in infinite time.
2. Historical preservation with 3D scanning is also a new weapon for the tourism industry!
Not only has the effect of preserving historical images, 3D scanning is also an appropriate choice to apply to the development of cultural tourism.
Finding information on travel sites or reviews from previous people can not paint a complete picture of the scenery where you are going to travel. Thanks to the 3D scanning, tourists will have a new feeling when learning about where they are intending to visit. This technology allows users to travel in the scanned 3D model to visit every corner of the location.
This precise feeling creates trust and certainty for travel decisions. This is the link between the tourist destination and tourists even before they arrive.
Currently, a number of museums, cultural and historical sites have applied technology in many activities. It opens up a great opportunity to draw visitors to museums and monuments. With 3D technology, museums and even monuments will no longer be just a place to provide knowledge that visitors can become a member of the story of the past.
