Over 100,000 Tibetan antiques digitally documented

Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region has finished making digital records of over 100,000 antiques, local authorities said Monday.

As part of the country's first census of antiques, Tibet started digitally cataloging in 2013.

A total of 105,494 items at 825 sites have had their information and state of preservation recorded online, according to the regional cultural heritage bureau.

Most items already had their basic information documented, and during the census more detailed and complete information was collected and uploaded.

Tibet boasts abundant historical resources, with 1,295 registered institutions, about 90 percent of which are temples, holding items.

Digital documentation of all such antiques is scheduled to be completed within three years.
