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 –...

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...

Real-Time Cosmological Simulation Visualization for VR

I’m very taken by the possibilities of Voluminous – a real-time volumetric visualization system developed by Drew Whitehouse of the ANU NCI Vizlab in 2011 – I’ve used it myself for a few demos for what-is-possible, as it is so exemplary. It’s a kind of web-front end for Drishti. It...

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...

Conversations about Paintings

My father is a painter – a landscape painter – and he has done this for most of his life (and all my life) – and, naturally, he’s had a strong impact upon the way I think about things visually. We’ve had many interesting discussions over many decades. Anyway, over...
