Vid Petrovic is nearing completion of his Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego. He received a BS in Computer Science and Engineering as well as a MS in Computer Graphics and Visualization from UC Irvine. Petrovic’s research focuses on developing a system that visualizes LIDAR data to create three-dimensional replicas of sites that CISA3/CHEI are working on, including the Bermuda 100 Challenge shipwreck sites. Petrovic collects data from a site, renders that data into a visual form on a computer, and then creates an image that can be observed from various angles, light levels, and distances from a separate location. The system that Petrovic is developing allows an objective record of the site to be preserved for future study.
