2017.09 | Short courses – GSA Annual Meeting in Seattle

Are you a PhD student / Early Stage Researcher looking into 3D?
Then, don’t miss out this opportunity to attend to the following short courses during the Geological Society of America (GSA) Annual Meeting, Oct.2017    🙂
 .
502. High Resolution Topography & 3D Imaging 1: Introduction to Terrestrial Lidar Scanning
Fri. 20 Oct., 8am – 5pm
Co-Sponsor: UNAVCO
Abstract: This one-day course will provide faculty, students, and professionals with an introduction to Terrestrial Lidar Scanning (TLS – a.k.a ground-based lidar) for research and education. TLS provides high-resolution three-dimensional images of geologic features and has emerged as a powerful tool for applications ranging from outcrop mapping to an analysis of earth-surface processes. The course will focus on TLS technology, data collection, processing and analysis, and examples of science and educational applications. A combination of lectures and hands-on demonstrations of TLS equipment and data processing will be used. Limited financial support is available for students (see the UNAVCO Short Course Series page). This course can be taken alone or together with “High Resolution Topography and 3D Imaging II: Introduction to Structure from Motion (SfM) Photogrammetry” (course #513) for an introduction to 3D imaging technology that compliments TLS.

513. High Resolution Topography & 3D Imaging 2: Introduction to Structure from Motion (SfM) Photogrammetry
Sat. 21 Oct., 8am – 5pm
Abstract: Structure from Motion (SfM), a photogrammetric technique that uses overlapping images to construct 3D surface models, is quickly emerging as a valuable research and education tool in geodesy, geomorphology, structural geology, and related disciplines. Images can be collected with a standard consumer-grade camera, making SfM a low-cost tool that compliments other 3D imaging technologies, such as terrestrial and aerial laser scanning (LiDAR). SfM can be collected from a hand-held camera or an airborne platform such as an aircraft, tethered balloon, kite or UAS (unmanned aerial system), enabling 3D imaging of features ranging in size from decimeters to several kilometers. This one-day course will provide faculty, students, and professionals with an introduction to SfM technology, data collection and processing, and examples of science and educational applications. A combination of lectures and hands-on demonstrations of SfM equipment and data processing will be used. This course can be taken alone, or together with “High Resolution Topography and 3D Imaging I: Introduction to Terrestrial Lidar Scanning” (course #502) for an introduction to 3D imaging technology that compliments SfM.
