This is an advanced 3-day workshop for using Agisoft Photoscan. Use a digital camera to create a series of 2D images that can be transformed into a 3D model.

  • Part I (October 3): We introduce Structure from Motion as a method for constructing 3D models of objects, architecture, and landscapes using digital photography and discuss guidelines and strategies for taking indoor and outdoor photographs sufficient for this purpose.
  • Part II (October 5): Steve Davis provides instruction for constructing 3D models using Agisoft Photoscan, focusing on the use of Structure from Motion to document archaeological excavations and artifacts. Students then will be given instructions for collecting their own photographic data to create a 3D model using either 123D Catch or Photoscan.
  • Part III (October 12): Students will construct 3D models using their own photographic data.
