We have recently pioneered a method to create ultra high resolution 3D models of corals for novel scientific and visualization tools. Using nothing more than a camera and 3D software, we can produce an accurate, interactive 3D model that doesn’t require any specialized 3D viewing software. Furthermore we have…

Scientists have long been caricatured as pocket protector wearing, anti-social, lab-coated 4-eyes. Those days are numbered. The scientific visualization revolution is burgeoning, as scientists and artists are coming together to produce stunning illustrations and experiences using their unique talents. Here is a great recent example from the TED stage:…

This week we ramped up our efforts and conducted a project further investigating Autodesk’s software, ReCap, and its viability to make high resolution 3D coral models (The more accurate technical term is 3D textured geometry).  We are very interested in the novel ability to measure coral surface area. Our…

Palau's amazing biodiversity

My two weeks in Palau have come to an end. Palau’s hospitable people and underwater wonders have surpassed all expectations. I end my trip with a Bolbometopon muricatum (humphead parrotfish) spawning dive with Sam’s Dive shop at 6 in the morning. As the sun rose, highways of parrotfish swirled around…
