Virtual South Georgia

A preliminary test fly-over of South Georgia, a sub-Antarctic Island. The flight begins at Grytviken, passes three historic whaling stations and then circumnavigates the island. This presents fascinating possibilities for visualizing the historic traverse of the island by Ernest Shackleton in 1916, as well as contemporary scientific data visualization.It’s just...

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...

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...
