ScanLAB Projects: Climate Impact Tour 2011

Posted by Rob Alderson,

With suggestions that the Arctic ice could reach a record low this year, a team from 3D data capture specialists ScanLAB Projects joined one of Greenpeace’s tours to the region to map what is going on there. Harnessing the skills usually used for large scale architectural or artistic projects they are now working with Cambridge University scientists to produce detailed computer simulations of the ice floes. This short teaser film gives us a glimpse into the trip and what their work will look like – using fascinating, complex means to achieve an urgent end.
