Video Production, Photogrammetric 3D Survey, ROV Ops, and yes — Dive Training

Hey there! My name is Christopher, and Scuba.Tech represents my mission to bring technologist principles to diving and expeditionary environments. This means livestreaming from shipwrecks, building 3D site-models with a global team, and integrating FLOSS + KISS principles to simplify workflows. Here, you'll find a repository for course notes, local resources and links, and of course a landing page for contacts and bookings.

  • Introduction to Photogrammetric 3D Survey… Underwater!

Ready to take your shipwreck diving and survey skills to the next level, or curious about art in rapid digital survey? Starting from the ground-up, we will review current survey techniques before introducing photogrammetric survey. With little more than a camera, an accurate baseline, the right software, and know-how, you can build scaled-3D models in just minutes after your dive! This technique has revolutionized land-based archaeology and is now being implemented underwater. All required software will be supplied, and we will go step-by-step through the entire workflow to create your first model. Handouts with notes will be provided, so you can focus on the task-at-hand…and have a convenient reference guide for the future! ~ 4 hrs
Optional Extension: All of the above, plus 2 hours of equipment setup, a 2-hour pool session, and 2 hours of modeling the results. Students will leave with 2+ 3D models, fully-configured software, and the diving and photography skills to begin real survey projects. ~ 10 hrs
