Shark 3D Photogrammetry Experiments

Brief:

I've long wanted to experiment with 3D photogrammetry in the context of ecological research, with a long term view of combining it with stereoscopic photogrammetry.

Approach:

I worked on a basic guide with a University colleague, then guided our marine students in how to take the correct number of photographs from the required angles.

Client:

Dyer Island Conservation Trust, South Africa

Responsibilities and tools:

  • Photography
  • Training
  • Photogrammetry

The Photogrammetry Process

I wrote a more detailed overview of the photogrammetry process on the Marine Dynamics Academy website, using a deceased dolphin as our subject.
