Abstract

In this paper, we described an attempt to preserve the A Famosa Fortress in Malaysia in 3D model. First, a brief background of the A Famosa fortress is presented to justify the importance of preserving this historical heritage. Then the stages involved in the digital preservation process are discussed and some images of the 3D model of this fortress are illustrated. To evaluate the importance of the digital preservation of A Famosa and to find out its potential application in the tourism and education industry in Malaysia, a human evaluation has been conducted and the results are presented and discussed in detail.
