Thesis
Full-text available
Visual displays are a formidable means of conveying information to the human brain. They facilitate the formation of scientific knowledge about the physical world, based on underlying observations of diverse kinds, through representations that are understood by practitioners of the relevant discipline area. Such data visualizations are critical in...
Thesis
Full-text available
This thesis develops a sociosemiotic model specifically focussed upon the semiotic interpretation of sculpture, and proposes that this type of artefact is susceptible to a systemic-functional approach, as explored in the work of M.A.K. Halliday and Michael O'Toole. This model is then allied with a sociosemantic model, in an endeavour to draw togeth...

Article
Full-text available
Scientific visualization aims to present numerical values, or categorical information, in a way that enables the researcher to make an inference that furthers knowledge. Well-posed visualizations need to consider the characteristics of the data, the display environment, and human visual capacity. In the geosciences, visualizations are commonly appl...
Preprint
Abstract— In this contribution we consider the visualization of global, deep Earth volume datasets for display and researcher interaction. While the algorithms and data analysis techniques that produce such volumetric results have become more sophisticated, the manner of visualizing these findings can be improved. We address the challenge of making...

Antarctic Heritage presents unrivalled opportunities for contemporary computational visualization techniques. These range from compelling immersive heritage experiences for the general public, through to the more exacting development of accurate digital archives for scholarly use. Game engines have a wide variety of heritage applications as develop...

Brief video demonstration of Tagger software in action.
Article
Full-text available
Geoscientists are required to analyze and draw conclusions from increasingly large volumes of data. There is a need to recognise and characterise features and changing patterns of Earth observables within such large datasets. It is also necessary to identify significant subsets of the data for more detailed analysis. We present an innovative, inter...

“Songlines: tracking the Seven Sisters exhibition” will be running from 15 September 2017 to 25 February 2018. Thanks to the full immersion inside the digital dome, visitors will be taken on a journey across the Australian desert in this Aboriginal-led exhibition about the epic Seven Sisters Dreaming — Travelling Kungkarangkalpa.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Terrane boundaries that define orogens separating the West and South Australian Cratons are evident in a number of datasets, including geological, geochemical, geomagnetic anomalies, gravity anomalies and seismic tomography maps. Understanding this architecture is important in constraining the evolution of Proterozoic Australia. It also impacts on...
Technical Report
Full-text available
This report provides an overview of the photogrammetric methodology and results obtained from a photogrammetric survey and model reconstruction of the Coal Mines Historic Site Main Shaft, co-located artefacts and surrounds. A comparison is made between results obtained from photogrammetric imaging and a LIDAR survey undertaken by National Survey So...

TaggerVR' is a work-in-progress immersive VR implementation of the 'Tagger' interactive software tool designed to visualize, characterize, sample and tag geoscientific datasets hosted in local and cloud-based repositories via a THREDDS Data Server and OPeNDAP. TaggerVR implements a VR GUI using Human Interface Devices (HID), providing data to the u...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Pattern-recognition in scientific data is not only a computational problem but a human-observer problem as well. Human observation of - and interaction with - data visualization software can augment, select, interrupt and modify computational routines and facilitate processes of pattern and significant feature recognition for subsequent human analy...
