The 3D Metrics logo expresses dynamic and harmonic movement in 3D space. The new site 3d-metrics.com links to my web presence across my ‘professional life with zest’, ‘social life with meaning’ and personal accounts.
Software for Seeing What You Want to Know is, so far, still only on my laptop, and, for the purpose of forecasting financial data, on the demo site www.3dmetrics.net.
Complex data and digital images appear in a ‘new light’ thanks to my prototype software that ‘layers’ complex data and ‘re-visualizes’ digital images.
3D Realities are re-presented either by measurements and time series or by images. The software shows more visual detail and quantifies hitherto unquantifiable qualities on 2D screens:
- complex data can reveal more in ‘layers’ and be used for decision support in expert systems
- digital images show more visual depth and perspective, while this ‘software vision’ can process hundreds and thousands of images for comparison and selections
- new qualitative measures can be derived when interpreting what we are looking for using ‘software vision’ and ‘image metrics’.
The Terahertz image of a hand is input into my prototype software as an illustration of the “re-visualization” that the software achieves.

The wavy re-visualization was produced from this reference image that was given to me by the National Physical Laboratories (NPL), responsible for measuring in the UK. As a ‘reference image’ it can be used for calibrating microscopes.

The third re-visualization also stems from an NPL image: a sprayed surface that gives rise to much more visual depth and metric detail than the original.

The image serves as a sample for the capabilities resulting from the software:
- ‘seeing more detail’ with human eyes
- ‘processing more images’ with ‘software vision’
- ‘interpreting more’ with expert portals that rely on the decision support provided by ‘image metrics’.
