Generating aerial imagery with your iPhone’s LiDAR sensor
This technical guide details how you can create your own aerial imagery and 3D models of streets with the built in iPhone LiDAR sensor and open source tools in the OpenDroneMap package.
Lane-accurate street maps with OpenStreetMap – writing a vector tileserver for osm2streets
I’ve built safecyclingmap.com, an open-source proof of concept map that renders cycleways and streets down to the individual lanes, to assist cyclists picking safe routes in cities with little dedicated cycling infrastructure.
Creating aerial imagery with a bike helmet camera (GoPro) and OpenDroneMap
This technical guide details how you can create your own orthorectified (aka satellite view/bird mode) imagery, point clouds and 3D models of streets with nothing but a 360 degree camera mounted on bicycle helmet, and the open source photogrammetry software OpenDroneMap.
Visualising Sydney bus congestion with Marey charts
As a side project I built Sydney Transit Graph – a visualisation of real-time Sydney bus congestion. Each line on the graph (a Marey chart) represents a bus completing its route (percentage) over time.
