Frank Hurley Super-Resolution Project

An inadvertent panorama taken by Frank Hurley, during the 1911-14 Australasian Antarctic Expedition. This panorama was derived from a low-resolution scan of a panning camera shot, taken by Hurley in 1911-12. It was image processed using machine learning super-resolution techniques and stitched together to create a panoramic image. Deep Learning...

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...

Computational Ocean (2016)

Computational Ocean is a visualisation derived from my work on Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. It includes global ocean data visualisations deriving from the GEBCO dataset, global Sea Surface Height Anomaly (SSHA) and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) datasets, as well as synthetic FFT-based ocean simulations. These are works-in-progress to create new and...
