Kees Beemster Leverenz, Underwater Imaging Software and Development


Kees is an enthusiastic local diver and GUE instructor. Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) is a scuba diving organization that provides education within recreational, technical, and cave diving. He enjoys getting in the water as often as possible. Kees is passionate about contributing to both local and global photogrammetry projects, as well as assisting with cave exploration projects in Mexico and Canada. In his professional life, Kees has a Bachelor of Science in geology from the University of Washington, and currently works as a software developer for Microsoft’s Office 365 Incident Communication and Coordination team. 

Although not often considered as a recreational diving hot spot, Lake Washington harbors some of the Pacific Northwest's best-preserved wrecks with stories stretching back a century. Cold water and low light has allowed delicate aluminum planes and wooden boats to remain preserved. The documentation of these wrecks is difficult, due to the low visibility and challenging conditions in this body of water. Kees has been using modern 3D documentation techniques and adopted software to render the wrecks of Lake Washington in high resolution -- and you can too! Kees will be telling us more about ongoing and completed documentation projects in Lake Washington as well as future efforts you can get involved with in this exciting presentation.
