3D Photogrammetry of a brain coral



These 2 videos show a 3D render of a small brain coral from Bermuda. The program Autodesk 123 Catch generated the 3D wireframe model from a series of 40 photographs, all in less than 15 minutes.

We plan to use this technology to measure coral growth in 3D, as well as develop 3D models of coral reef benthic communities from underwater photo or video sets.

Stay tuned for more 3D fun in the weeks ahead!
