Ocean Viz

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).

OceanViz

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
