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...

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). These are a few work-in-progress renders of scenes from my forthcoming Mawson’s Huts VR app, produced in partnership with the Mawson’s Huts Foundation. You can view them on your computer or iOS/Android device (fullscreen if you use the little...

Antarctica: Stereoscopic & Monoscopic Panoramas for VR

Online VR technologies have come a long way recently, so I’m finally getting around to embedding some 360º stereoscopic and monoscopic panoramas that I shot during several adventures in Antarctica (see also my media art documentation.)  These images are viewable using Google Cardboard or compatible viewer on a mobile device in stereoscopic 3D*, or...

Antarctic 360º Video, VR, Panoramas and Photogrammetry

With recent developments in 360º video and VR, it is now possible for me to revisit a great range of material I have accumulated over the last 15 years of Antarctic-related visualisation research: these range from work I have done with Frank Hurley’s stereoscopic glass plates (which I commenced in...

Shipping Container Architecture inspired by Antarctic Bases

One of my great passions, having been involved in building a base in Antarctica – at Cape Dension, Commonwealth Bay – is sustainable environmentally-friendly architecture. The great lesson I learnt in this process is that it could be relatively inexpensive to construct interesting, aesthetic modular buildings using industrial and recycled...

Ice-Free Antarctica: Visualization (2012)

A 3-minute visualisation of the ice-free regions of Antarctica commissioned by the Australian Antarctic Division for the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting XXXV. These regions are home to the terrestrial biodiversity of the Antarctic continent, but cover only 0.41% of the continental territory – the rest is ice. Of the 50850km2...
