VMI Blog IX: Weather & Penguins!

A quick demo on work-in-progress on VMI, demonstrating progress on weather simulations and few other features. I’m using the fantastic UDS rather than the inbuilt UE volumetrics and particle systems, as this provides an off-the-shelf weather solution with a ton of customizable features via blueprints. This is working in conjunction...

GPlates Visualizations

GPlates is ‘a plate tectonics program..(used to)..manipulate reconstructions of geological and paleogeographic features through geological time.’ I’ve looked at (and used) GPlates on and off over the years – it’s definitely the kind of software you need to spend some time getting your head around, as it is deep and...

VMI Blog VIII: Voices in the Digital Twin

A night-time flight around Macquarie Island, reflecting both technical progress, technical issues, and a composite narrative of scientists who have worked there – an initial experiment in Digital Twin story-telling.Plus: demonstration of 3rd-person VR actor and satellite-derived inflow of vegetation mapping.

VMI Blog VII: Animals and Environment

We’re making good progress on environmental visualization and placing animals in our VMI simulation. Gina Moore and I have been working closely together and have moved a huge amount of our workflow into Houdini and Houdini Engine, as this offers so many advantages over using inbuilt UE tools – especially...

VMI Blog IV

A brief 9-minute overview of work-in-progress on Virtual Macquarie Island for the VMI Project. The movie covers the development of the environment and terrain model, ocean workflow and initial development tests in endemic fauna visualization – the Southern Elephant Seal and Wandering Albatross. Lots more in the pipeline! November 2021...

Virtual South Georgia

What started off as a little zero-budget technical experiment in my spare time inadvertently turned into a bit of an epic. Anyway, I started getting my head around some technical things I wanted to figure out, so it’s all good. Hope you enjoy it. If there are mistakes regarding place...

Visions of Australia: VMI

Synopsis Virtual Macquarie Island (VMI 1.0), is a prototype digital exhibit created in collaboration with TMAG and the Australian Antarctic Program. It is currently on exhibit at TMAG’s Islands to Ice Antarctica gallery. VMI 2.0 will develop a digital touring exhibition, including collaboration with Australian scientific organisations and South Australian,...

Exploratory volumetric deep Earth visualization by 2.5D interactive compositing

Abstract:In this contribution we consider the visualization of global, deep Earth volume datasets for display and researcher interaction. While the algorithms and data analysis techniques that produce such volumetric results have become more sophisticated, the manner of visualizing these findings can be improved. We address the challenge of making an...
