Required Fields

Digital Photogrammetry for Structural Geologists (YORSGET 2018)

This 1‐day workshop is designed for all structural geologists that are interested in generating digital outcrop models using Structure‐from‐Motion Multiview Stereo (SfM MVS). In this workshop attendees will learn a “best practice digital photogrammetry workflow” including image acquisition (choice of camera/lens, camera settings, image overlap, survey layout), the use of markers/ground control points and scale bars, the right choice of processing settings and how to share and export generated spatial datasets. All attendees will be processing UAV imagery of a coastal outcrop using the digital photogrammetry software package Agisoft PhotoScan Pro. During the training, attendees will also be introduced to CloudCompare, a free and open‐source point cloud editing software which allows to extract structural data (e.g., bedding measurements, fracture orientations, etc) and much more from 3D point clouds.
