Deep Learning for Heritage Visualisation

Deep Learning can be employed in a variety of cultural heritage visualisation and reconstruction tasks. It is part of a family of machine learning approaches based upon the idea of ‘learning’ data representations through kernel-based algorithms that encode high dimensional abstractions in ‘deep’ or embedded artificial neural networks (ANNs). There...

Asteroid Bennu Visualisations

  The OSIRIS_REx spacecraft has arrived at Asteroid Bennu, on an exciting sample-return mission. Some of the earliest publicly-available photographs are of sufficient resolution to enable space-enthusiasts like me to have a crack at creating a photogrammetric model – so here it is. It’s probably not terribly accurate given the...

Mawson’s Huts VR on the EPICylinder

This image shows a portion of a 120 million pixel stereoscopic render of the photogrammetrically-reconstructed interior of Mawson’s Huts, displayed upon the EPICentre EPICylinder at UNSW. As far as I am aware, this is currently (2018) the highest resolution stereoscopic immersive display system in the world – right here in...

Mawson’s Huts VR Project

360º Stereoscopic Views of Mawson’s Huts (photogrammetric + 3D model reconstructions). Note: currently VR view mode on iOS/Android may not work, due to gyro access and software issues. Desktop viewing functions as expected. I will push updates as and when available. These are a few work-in-progress renders of scenes from...

Antarctica: Stereoscopic & Monoscopic Panoramas for VR

Note: currently VR view mode on iOS/Android may not work, due to gyro access and software issues. Desktop viewing functions as expected. I will push updates as and when available. Online VR technologies have come a long way recently, so I’m finally getting around to embedding some 360º stereoscopic and monoscopic...

Henbury Meteorite Craters: Panoramic Astrophotography

Henbury Crater 360º panorama – click and drag to look around On a recent trip to the Northern Territory (shooting fulldome timelapse astrophotography for a client) I took a little detour to the Henbury Meteorites Craters.  We had been told there was something that may be of interest there (I have to confess...

Receiving DVB-T broadcasts and SDR on MacOS

Update April 2020: the advice provided here is getting a bit old, but may still work with Ubuntu 14.04. For an updated version of MeTV check out the GitHub repository here: https://github.com/Me-TV/Me-TV and latest compiled executables at Bintray here. An interesting exercise would be to compile MeTV into a Docker...

Antarctic 360º Video, VR, Panoramas and Photogrammetry

With recent developments in 360º video and VR, it is now possible for me to revisit a variety of material I’ve accumulated over the last 20 years of Antarctic-related visualisation research: these range from work I have done with Frank Hurley’s stereoscopic glass plates (which I commenced in 1999 –...
