Shark 3D Photogrammetry Experiments

Testing photogrammetry to capture digital archives of shark carcasses.
Extended research project on the subject planned to commence in 2018.
Disclaimer: some of the following images are grim.

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.

Location:

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.
