3D Map Shaw's Cove - Laguna Beach

Postby eDiver » Mon Jan 16, 2012 6:04 pm

We are making progress on the virtual dive site of Shaw's Cove

Image


The southern portion of the map is quite accurate (50cm precision on the horizontal plane and ~1cm on the vertical), but unfortunately the surveying boat did stop at turn-around rock (more or less) ... and turned around :(

The western side of the reef is the portion that needs "more work". If you have any suggestion / image / maps / datapoints, send them over and we will include them in the virtual dive site.

P.S.
Virtually diving the whole area (including the "Arch") is much faster than in real life ... specially when I am in "fly" mode ;)

Hmmm.. When you make dive sites, do you use Bathymetric data spliced onto 3D Models?

yes ... IF ... there is a bathymetric dataset available :?
In this specific case, we have a - very precise - bathymetric dataset for the southern portion of the reef (from ~turnaround rock to south).
The northern portion of the map is "made-up" based on tracing, getting - manually - few GPS coordinates and diving the place
