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.

Les nouvelles technologies au service du Patrimoine disparu – L’arche d’entrée du temple de Bel de Palmyre sera reconstruit et imprimé en 3D pour être exposé à Trafalgar Square à Londres et Times Square à New York

[français & english]

L’Institute of Digital Archaeology propose une nouvelle façon de faire revivre le temple de Bel de Palmyre, détruit en août 2015. Il s’agit de reconstruire en 3D son arche monumentale (en partie encore debout actuellement) grâce à la photogrammétrie, puis de l’imprimer en 3D en taille réelle pour pouvoir l’exposer à Londres et New York.

L’IDA est un consortium composé de L’université de Harvard, l’Université d’Oxford et le Musée pour le Future de Dubaï.
L’Institut est également impliqué dans plusieurs projets, dont un ayant pour volonté de fournir à des volontaires des appareils photos 3D pour documenter les sites culturels à risque au Moyen-Orient et dans le Nord de l’Afrique : « The Million Image Database » (article à venir).

A propos du projet d’impression 3D de l’arche du temple de Bel :

« The aim of our proposed installation is to draw attention to the global crisis surrounding the looting and despoliation of cultural heritage objects and architecture and the importance of celebrating the beauty and significance of these objects to the everyday lives of modern people. » Dr Alexy Karenowska, Director of Technology at the Institute for Digital Archaeology, told The Independent.
