Based on the pre-developed technology for creating spatial-temporal models of urban development, in this paper, we have developed a database, which represents a collection of three-dimensional models of cultural and historical heritage objects located in the central part of Tambov (Russia), both existing and completely or partially destroyed. They include the elements of Tambov fortress of the XVII century (towers, walls, church), elements of the «Market Square» area (public house, merchant’s rows, tavern) and others. Currently, the database includes information on more than 200 objects and their elements. This database can be used by undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students, tutors and lecturers. The library of three-dimensional models can also be used at creation of multiuser three-dimensional virtual worlds in such software systems as OpenSimulator, Second Life and others.


Keywords: cultural heritage, database, cultural heritage objects, 3D-models, case-study of old Tambov.
