Live "Gull's Eye" Camera

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
As part of my ocean photogrammetry project, I've installed a live camera taking time lapse photography of Portland Harbor.  The objective here is to test a low-cost live monitoring system for surface slicks (i.e. oil).  The images can be georectified on the fly, giving a latitude-longitude position of everything we can see on the surface of the water (see image).

Right now, I've set the website up to show the last twenty minutes of images in an animation.  The next step is to show an animation of the rectified images along side the original.  Stay tuned for this exciting update.

from different angles, overlaid on the same portion of the harbor.
