Virtual 3D Media in Royal Temple Thailand: Wat Yannasangvararam

Abstract

Thailand has many invaluably cultural heritages found in various areas, particularly historical heritage, arts, architecture, and the way of life, which attract tourism in Thailand at the present. Although, some heritages have not properly been kept in good condition or used for arts and appreciation of intelligence of locality. Wat Yannasangvararam is a Buddhist place with a long history, located in Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province, Thailand, founded in 1976. His majesty the King Rama IX, the present King of Thailand, has given this temple as the first class of royal monastery of Ratchaworamahawiharn and kept the temple under the royal patronage of the king. This research was to distribute knowledge about Thailand's cultural heritage and develop a model representing historical places in the form of virtual 3D computer graphic model with 3D environmental condition. The 3D computer graphic processes are as follows: 1) Pre-production: problem defines and study, draw maps, determine walking zone in the temple 2) Production Picture: 3D model character, shading and texturing, light and shadow, rendering and interactive and 3) Post-production: research validation by experts. The virtual 3D computer graphic model presented in both Thai and English language, which is compatible with personal computer, mobile phone and tablet, can lead to further education for students, undergraduates and people and conserve Thai culture.
