This project supported the documentation and assessment of the 17th-century Wat Chaiwatthanaram as a pilot for addressing flood damage at this and other structures at the World Heritage site of Ayutthaya. A major tourist attraction of Ayutthaya, this former Buddhist wat was already deteriorating when severe flooding in 2011 damaged brickwork, stucco, woodwork and mural paintings. The project involved intensive surveys of the site, including laser scanning and digital mapping, and field tests of conservation techniques.
