OceanViz, is an interactive underwater visualization made with the Blender Game Engine. The goal of this visualization was to accurately display the amount of marine life in the sea, based on a scientific modeling program called Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE).
In its current iteration, OceanViz is implemented as a plug-in for the EwE desktop software, using the embedding capabilities of the Blenderplayer
The application runs in realtime. The recordings you see next were captured during a demo section:
The EwE plugin is a proof of concept, to show the capabilities of integrating OceanViz with other tools, and to show the potentials of expanding the capabilities of EcoSim with Ecopath:
Oceanviz uses a branch of Blender. You can get the code in https://github.com/dfelinto/blender/tree/oceanviz
