Virtual Angkor is a comprehensive, interactive, visual representation of life in the premodern Cambodian city of Angkor. It is the cumulative result of extensive computer graphics research underpinned by a broad investigation in the sources and oriented towards a clear set of educational goals. Virtual Angkor represents the potential for symbiotic platforms that draw on and merge artistic, historical, technical, and scientific expertise. In this overview, considerations of time compression, parameter-driven simulation, modeling fidelity, instancing and duplication, interaction, artistic license, integrating feedback, and ongoing collaborative processes are highlighted.
