According to the vice minister, in Kazakhstan the mausoleums of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi and Karakhan were digitized in 3D for the first time.
“An interactive virtual map for sacral objects of national and local significance was created with detailed descriptions and 3D tours,” the Vice Minister Raimkulova emphasized.
In addition, work is underway to digitize the library fund data and historical documents, where one of the novelties of the project will be the unification of all databases of Kazakh libraries. It is planned that all digitized data will be available on the E-culture portal.
In order to popularize the sacred objects, the department created visiting centers. For today they are prepared in historical and cultural museums-reserves Ulytau, Otrar” and “Tanbaly.”
