Discussion around practice and preparation for diving and photogrammetry skills with depth maps being dropped as mesh source when insufficient coverage caused issues.
Simon Brown has been named RPS Science Photographer of the Year 2020 for his ortho photo of the SS Thistlegorm
Blog post discussing the value of photogrammetry preserving evidence with higher levels of detail available for online viewing
Diving the SS Thistlegorm book is available now and at 240 pages contains a wealth of information about the wreck and its cargo
Discussion examining the benefits of occlusion maps applied to Metashape models to improve level of visible detail with low poly count plus review of online hosting of massive detail models.
Reprocessing the SS Thistlegorm data reveals the wreck at new levels of detail with the orthomosaic for the main site now reproduced at 2mm per pixel
A while back I nearly didn’t answer the phone. It was one of those international numbers and I didn’t recognise it but something told me to pick it up. I spent the next 30 minutes chatting to John Kinsella of Ocean Divers in Ireland all about 3D reconstruction and how it could be used in Read more about Wrecked in Second Life[…]
Regular visitors will know we use the UWIS system to track our movements and camera positions as we work on the Vobster Photogrammetry Project. But what if we turned the idea on its head? Instead of tracking the camera or diver as it moves around could we use the UWIS tracker units as a static Read more about Control Points Defined[…]
Short discussion on first dive after COVID-19 lockdown and using UWIS tracker for 3D reconstruction and improving local accuracy of model with adjustments to tracker unit location.
It should come as no surprise to find we like efficiency. Anything that makes life easier will always be welcomed with open arms and the UWIS navigation system does just that. Maintaining efficiency carries on above the waves. Every single image is traceable back to the project or subject and retrieval takes seconds. Its part Read more about You need an App for that[…]
