Abstract. This research is dealing with 3D modeling of historical and heritage landmarks of Safranbolu that are registered by UNESCO. This is an Augmented Reality (AR) based project in order to trigger virtual three-dimensional (3D) models, cultural music, historical photos, artistic features and animated text information. The aim is to propose a GIS-based approach with these features and add to the system as attribute data in a relational database. The database will be available in an AR-based application to provide information for the tourists.
