VIETNAM BUILDS A DIGITAL DATA BANK ON RELICS AND RELIC CONSERVATION
The Relics Preservation Institute at the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism is trialling a website detailing relic sites found around Vietnam with the desire for sharing and promoting the Vietnamese relic sites.
The web provides scientific papers and research studies on thousands of relic sites nationwide as well as information on restoration projects.
Digital technology is expected to promote relic conservation and create added value in preserving and sustainably using the country’s heritage. It will help to produce a unique experience for visitors in the present 4th industrial revolution.
Thus, the application of new technology will further support the conservation and the promotion of heritage values.
Digitalizing the heritages requires much lower cost but provides higher visual aids and reliability than other methods.
Besides, digitalized heritages can be popularized very quickly via the internet, without any limitation of time, location, or language.
Thanks to digitalization, heritages will approach the community, researchers, domestic and foreign tourists more efficiently, thereby promoting the country and people of Vietnam and producing the services to not only preserve but also develop sustainably that heritage itself. The application of new technology will further support the conservation and the promotion of heritage values.
In the coming time, on the website will new documents and relic records appear.
