The paper describes the process of computer
visualisation and illustrates through a live demonstration the model of Jetavanaramaya. It is a computer aided three-dimensional (3D) visualization combined with global positioning. It has been developed using satellite images, photographs, and the commonly available 3D visualization software called Google Sketchup. In addition to computational graphical tools, the combined knowledge cialis pills of historical texts, archaeology, architecture, art, and engineering was used in this modeling to represent these past structures in the most accurate way.
