Today we talk to Eric Stackpole of Open ROV. They did a great project on Lake Tahoe and we talk about what they have at SHA2017.
Today we talk to Mike Murray about using 3D laser scanning underwater.
On this episode Chris Webster interviews Sean Cox of East Carolina University regarding their exhibit in the Tech Room at the 50th Annual Society for Historical and Underwater Archaeology meeting in Fort Worth, TX. Cox and his team explored an underwater wreck, took a bunch of photos and data points, and created an interactive 3D rendering of the wreck that you can walk around and on. It was pretty cool and a great way to experience something that only a few have the ability to.
