Registration is open for the 3rd edition of the course "Introduction to Photogrammetry". This course will be held live online (synchronous). Max 16 participants.

AABA members have a 20 % discount on the course fee.

Schedule: Online live sessions on April 18th, 19th, 26th, 27th, and 28th, from 14:00 to 17:30 (Madrid time zone). The rest of the time participants will be working on their own projects, between the live sessions.

Instructors: Dr. Verónica Díez Díaz (Museum für Naturkunde, Germany) & Dr. Heinrich Mallison (Palaeo3D, 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 color 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 licenses will be provided for the course.
