TNC18 pushes the bar ever higher

TNC18’s packed schedule of sessions ended today, Wednesday 13 June, with a closing plenary featuring Andrew Woods, an experienced engineer and technical manager in 3D imaging and visualisation. Andrew talked passionately about the Sydney - Kormoran Project, a multi-disciplinary project combining deep-water imaging, supercomputing, image processing, advanced visualisation and history, to tell the story of two of Australia’s most significant shipwrecks – the HMAS Sydney (II) and HSK Kormoran.
