Photogrammetry and Related 3D Imaging Technologies - An Introduction: CreatingThree-dimensional Models from a Set of Images
BeginnersPrerequisitesNew

Wed 4 Mar - Thu 5 Mar 2020

Description

This course provides an introduction to Photogrammetry, or the creation of three-dimensional (3D) models from two-dimensional (2D) data obtained from photographs, while introducing related 3D concepts and technologies. Along with basic 3D concepts (point clouds, meshes, file formats) there will be an overview and experience of creating and managing 3D images, which will provide a better understanding of the process of capturing 3D data from a variety of objects (from a stone to a city). Specialist software (e.g. Agisoft Metashape) will be introduced in order to build a 3D model from a series of photos, using a trial version of the product to produce and adjust your 3D model.

Exploring some of the competing methods of capturing 3D data in several fields, including 3D scanning and CT scanning, will be combined with an overview of preparing the results for use in research, in publications, and in VR/AR/XR projects. In addition, some useful sources of information and guidance will be provided, along with software and hardware tips and some of the key repositories used for sharing your models, or for making use of models made by others, or just for getting inspired. This course also will provide an opportunity to meet others who are already using or would like to use photogrammetry or other 3D technologies in their research or personal projects.
