    The popular use of three dimensional models for visually representing information in archaeology, historic buildings, cultural heritage organisations, and academic research has created new challenges for managing and preserving such material. Successful preservation of 3D models depends on a number of parameters, including identification of file formats, specification of technical characteristics and standardisation of metadata models. Furthermore, accurate interpretation of 3D models depends on the persistence of the software used to create, render and display the deriving products.
