Indonesia is a country known for its natural resource. Various flora and fauna lives on this fertile land in the country, such as one-horned rhinoceros (Javanese rhinoceros), Sumateran elephant, Bawean deer or even komodo can be found here. But as the technology evolves, author will apply Augmented Reality (AR) technology to present these Indonesia’s animals in real scale without disturbing their population. This technology is equipped with features to apply realistic shadow so the object of virtual animals will have shadow similar to real animals. Phase to create this realistic shadow is receive light, which is a process receiving light from sun object in virtual environment, then setting plane is a setting in virtual plane to receive shadow’s projection and projection shadow is method to projecting shadow on a plane in virtual environment. The result of applying realistic shadow augmented reality is a projection reference on virtual objects. Applied realistic shadow will give a realistic impression on virtual animals of Indonesia that is showed.
