Online (synchronous) course: Introduction to Photogrammetry

Transmitting Science has a new online (live) course: Introduction to Photogrammetry.


Dates and schedule: Online live sessions Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th of July; and Tuesday 3rd, Wednesday 4th, and Thursday 5th of August; from 14:00 to 17:30 (GMT+2, Madrid time zone).

Instructors: Dr. Heinrich Mallison (Palaeo3D, Germany) and Dr. Verónica Díez Díaz (Museum für Naturkunde, Germany).

Course Overview This course is addressed to researchers and technicians who work with complex structures and need to digitize their samples for different reasons, such as digital preservation, geometric morphometrics, biomechanics analyses, etc. The goal of this course is to explain how you can obtain 3D virtual models from surfaces, using photogrammetry. These techniques and technologies offer the possibility to obtain 3D models of the external morphology of the samples including colour and texture of a wide size range of specimens with medium – low cost and fast approaches. By the end of this course, participants should be able to obtain high-quality digitalization of samples with the most commonly used techniques. They will also be able to edit and manipulate the digital models to prepare them for use in typical analytical software.

The main software that you will use during the course: Reality Capture, Agisoft Metashape, GOMinspect, and Meshmixer. Temporal licences will be provided for the course.
