As part of the Reactive Reefs project, we aim to transport the public to coastal reefs systems and inspire protection and conservation efforts for these rainforests of the sea. Using my Fluid Lensing technique, we are able to create 3D images of reefs systems we fly over at cm-scale and higher resolutions. You can see the fluid lensing overview used to create the map in the second video below.
Below you can see an overview of the interactive 3D Coral Diorama. Also, you can read more about how we made this diorama in the paper below by my summer interns at NASA Ames, Charlene Cuellar and Megan Prakash. We look forward to sharing the next three dioramas we are putting together soon! If you would like to see this firsthand, come by the NASA booth at AGU in SF Dec. 14-19.
