Project Clockwork-Ocean starts with IGI real-time software

Project Clockwork Ocean

From June 15th to 27th, 2016 the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht in Germany will be using a zeppelin for the first time in coastal and ocean research. It is equipped with several sensors and will help detect small ocean eddies.

The results of a thermal camera is converted into a map in real-time by a software provided by IGI. The map is displayed and sent to research ships in the project area.
With help of this map the researchers identify the interesting phenomena and lead the three research ships directly to the small ocean eddies to conduct various measurements.

The IGI software is based on IGIvisu, a software that was developed by IGI to support the data capturing with aerial cameras and airborne LiDAR systems.
