mawsonshuts.com virtual tour

An interactive panoramic tour of Mawson’s Huts is now live at mawsonshuts.com. This is an immersive narrative documentary work created through my consultancy Chthonic, augmenting the important work of the Mawson’s Huts Foundation. The VR tour runs on any device supporting modern web standards (e.g. desktop browsers, mobile devices) and...

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 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...

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 –...

Oculus Rift Experiments

A few experiments (more soon) with Oculus Rift: EXPERIMENT 1: An afternoon and evening faffing around with the Oculus Rift DK1 and Unity 3D, getting a first very rough sketch of my ‘Mawson’s Huts Antarcica VR experience’ working – a test-bed for future work in virtual heritage visualisation. The technology/software...

VR: AVIE: Antarctica

VR: AVIE: Antarctica

I created a series of stereoscopic (3d) fully immersive cylindrical panoramas at Cape Denison, Antarctica – in and around Mawson’s Huts in 2008. The AVIE (Advanced Visualisation and Interaction Environment) was developed by the iCinema Centre at the University of New South Wales . It is a panoramic 360º stereoscopic immersive environment....
