Conférence – « Where Geomatics Meets Geoscience » 2nd Virtual Geoscience Conference (VGC 2016), Bergen, Norway

Les 22 et 23 septembre 2016 se tiendra la 2nde édition de la conférence Virtual Geoscience Conference (VCG) à Bergen, Norvège.

Le thème principal de la conférence sera la collaboration multidisciplinaire, et la tendance actuelle de la convergence des recherches en géomatique, visualisation, la 3D et la réalité virtuelle ainsi que la réalité augmentée, qui sont toutes entrain de se combiner avec des applications en geosciences pour donner naissance à des nouvelles et intéressantes possibilités d’analyses.

Thèmes de la conférence :

1. Method developments
Focuses on innovations in acquisition and processing of 3D datasets, new sensors, devices and platforms, and integration of different techniques. This revolves around technology development (hardware and software).

  • Laser scanning (lidar) & novel 3D mapping sensors
  • Photogrammetry/structure from motion (SfM)
  • Sensor integration (multi/hyperspectral, radar, thermal, geophysical)
  • Novel platforms (UAVs)
  • Mobile & real-time computing
  • Augmented reality in fieldwork
  • Laboratory-scale measurement (fossils, flumes, plaster, sediment tanks)

2. Data Analysis
Taking the processed 3D or 2D datasets and using them as the basis for analysis.

  • Interpretation
  • Automated feature mapping
  • Geostatistics
  • Numerical modelling and simulation
  • Visualisation, computer graphics
  • Virtual reality
  • Change detection/monitoring

3. Application Fields
Showcase the major influence of spatial data across the geosciences, combining acquisition, processing and analysis to solve problems and answer outstanding questions.

  • Geology (including petroleum geology): sedimentological mapping, reservoir analogues
  • Structural geology: fracture mapping and network modelling
  • Geomorphology: characterisation of surface processes
  • Natural hazards: rockfalls, landslides, coastal erosion
  • Glaciology/cryosphere: glacier front monitoring
  • Volcanology: lava flow mapping, crater modelling, laboratory methodsHydraulics/through-water mapping
  • Climate/environmentInfrastructure: tunnelling, railway, roads
  • Mining and energy

This list is certainly non-exhaustive. The final programme will be designed based on the scientific quality of the submissions received.

The 2nd Virtual Geoscience Conference (VGC) will be held in Bergen, Norway, 22-23 September 2016.

The conference main theme is all about multidisciplinary collaboration, and a recent trend is the general convergence of research in geomatics (spatial science), visualisation, computer vision and graphics, as well as virtual and augmented reality, which are filtering into geoscience applications to give new and exciting analysis possibilities.

Workshop – 3D scanning, ArcheoLab, Marzo 2016, Torino

I 5 & 6 marzo 2016 si terrà a Torino un workshop sui laser scanner 3D: « Scanner e software low cost per il rilievo tridimensionale » organizzato dall’ArcheoLab.

Impara come rilevare in 3D un oggetto utilizzando strumenti e tecniche low-cost: da immagini digitali, da video digitali o con uno scanner 3D.

– Parte 1 –
Durante il corso verranno mostrate e utilizzate, attraverso esercitazioni pratiche, le principali soluzioni software low-cost, sia proprietarie, sia free e open source, che permettono di estrarre un modello 3D da una set di immagini digitali oppure direttamente da un video; in particolare, si utilizzeranno le seguenti applicazioni: Photoscan (Standard e Professional Edition), 3DF Zephyr (versione Lite e Pro) e MeshLab.

– Parte 2 –
Durante il corso verrà utilizzato lo scanner 3D a luce strutturata Scan in a Box, uno strumento prodotto in Italia che unisce ottime prestazioni a un costo accessibile.
Dopo una introduzione teorica sulle tecnologie di rilievo Range-Based, il corso prevede esercitazioni pratiche nell’utilizzo dello scanner per rilevare un oggetto.

Iscrizioni : early bird entro il 10/02/2016 a 149 €, e dopo 169€ (inclusa la quota associativa 2016 all’Associazione 3D Lab)
