Western Australia from Space

The brand new $396-million-dollar New Museum for Western Australia, opening in 2020, approached me for a visualisation of Western Australia from space, having seen a fulldome sequence from my 4k planetarium movie, Dark. They needed something high-resolution and not too expensive. And not just a screenshot from Google/Bing/etc Earth –...

Immersive Analytics, Colour and Geoscience Visualisation

Over the last few months, I’ve been wrapping up my part-time second PhD, looking forward to new challenges. The research has focussed on interactive data visualisation and immersive analytics, principally developing a suite of software tools for visualisation and analysis of geoscientific data. They’re pretty much ‘discipline agnostic’ and could...

AAE: Digital Ghosts Project

The AAE Digital Ghosts project develops and implements novel techniques in Deep Learning (DL) in application to Antarctic Cultural Heritage. Recent developments in DL facilitate the automated colourisation and extraction (or recreation) of three-dimensional data from black and white source photographs. In concert with conventional 3D-modelling and animation techniques, these reveal...

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 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...

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...

DomeLab

  Pre-Viz of the ARC-funded DomeLab 4k fulldome installation at the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Around 2015-6 I worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at NIEA (UNSW) to set up DomeLab with Professor Sarah Kenderdine (now Director of M+, EPFL.) I was involved from...
