These past 6 months have seen some really exciting developments in Fluid Lensing algorithm development, validation and application to large-scale reef mapping efforts in Western Australia and American Samoa. Also, I got married!
If you have seen one of my recent talks, you know what we are doing in regards to automated biosphere assessment using the 3D imagery computed from Fluid Lensing as well as hardware development supported by a NASA grant.
If you would like to see the latest results firsthand, I invite you to attend one of my talks at AGU in SF Dec. 14-19. I will be making two NASA Hyperwall talks and a poster presentation:
Monday, Dec. 15, 18:20-18:45 NASA Hyperwall @ NASA Booth
Tuesday, Dec. 16, 16:30-16:45 NASA Hyperwall @ NASA Booth
Thursday, Dec. 18, 08:00-12:00 AGU Poster Session
Abstract ID and Title: 28756: Fluid Lensing, Applications to High-Resolution 3D Subaqueous Imaging & Automated Remote Biosphere Assessment from Airborne and Space-borne Platforms
Final Paper Number: OS41A-1178
Also, 2 peer reviewed journal publications are in the works for early 2015 as well as release of the full datasets for others to use and analyze. You will see those on the blog when they come online. You can always help this process along with some artwork for sale at the vedphoto store:)
For the time being, here are some of the latest results from the Samoa dataset. A special thanks to the NASA Earth Exchange for rendering some of first high-resolution visualizations! Another set from Hamelin Pool are currently being processed that have about 10x the resolution of these renderings!
