Project Jigsaw:
Technologies Employed

  • The black and white images of Borobudur were copied with a Sony DXC-930P 3-CCD video camera, and framegrabbed into 1.6 megapixel images;
  • The digital images were processed using our own software, including ibatch, an X-Window program written in tcl/tk allowing the manipulation and processing of digital images of any dimensions;
  • VRML development work was on a Pentium Pro 400 machine with 128Mb of memory and a DiamondPro graphics card; image processing was on a Pentium 133 running LINUX;
  • A visit to Borobudur is projected with the aim of taking direct colour digital images of the monument, perhaps at 6 million pixels;
