This was my first 3D interactive project at ZPX and was developed for the EMEPC (Task Group for the Extension of the Portuguese Continental Shelf) aiming to captivate the interest of the general public to this project.
All that you see is mapped using real data that took several months to gather. Visit the deep Atlantic ocean or follow the automatic trails to take a tour. It took about 6 weeks of development with two programmers using the Unity3D engine. All the graphic content was delivered to us by our partner. Unfortunately there wasn’t time to add more interesting stuff to the deep ocean, such as some fishes or plants.
See the Ocean as never before
An amazing journey to the bottom of the Ocean, illustrating the Extension of Portugal’s Continental Platform project. This project was the result of a partnership between ZPX and Caixa d’Imagens.
You can try it here! Click on “Modelo Virtual 3D” – gamepad icon and wait for it to load, it may take a while due to the dimension of the terrain. You may have to install Unity3D web player.
