12pm – Photogrammetry Workshop with Marcus Abbott
Bungay Library and Bungay Castle.
Please note this event is for WVCAG members only.
About the Workshop
Come and learn how we can process digital images to produce 3D models of archaeological sites, have a go at processing your own digital photographs and learn about photogrammetry, which matches up features in photographs and using specific software can automatically create a 3D model. We will be using Bungay Castle as a case study, and hope to produce a 3D model of the castle in the course of the afternoon. You do not need any photographic skills to participate in the course and if you don’t have a camera, one will be provided.
Marcus is a professional archaeologist whose work is principally focused on innovative heritage projects that utilise the latest technologies for survey and visualisation. He provides full onsite three-dimensional digital data collection utilising survey grade GPS systems, total stations and the latest in laser scanning technology. Off site he compiles and organises this digital data to produce survey drawings, reconstructions, high-resolution models and fully navigable 3-D recreations. He is an expert in digital drafting and 3-D modelling techniques applicable to a wide range of projects and visualisations, especially those for museum installations, touch-screen displays and web based presentations. His experience incorporates a diverse range of projects varying in historical period and nature, both upstanding monuments and subterranean archaeology.
