Virtual Workshop: Scientific survey using Unmanned Aircraft Systems: 3D reconstruction of coastal environments

Thank you for your Submissions! Unfortunately, this Course is fully booked!

Instructor: Dr. Elisa Casella

Date & Time: June 9th and 10th from 12:00 to 4:00 pm

The use of UAS is revolutionizing many fields, among which environmental studies and all the sciences where a small-scale aerial view can provide high-resolution information to study natural or human-induced processes. Together with UAS, the development of new-generation photogrammetric methods are building the base of a more efficient way to measure environmental changes.

The aim of this workshop is to provide an introductory course to coastal scientists willing to explore the potential of UAS in their studies and using them consciously. This workshop has also the aim of introducing the photogrammetric method through the Agisoft Metashape suite. Participants will be able to reconstruct the 3D environment of a scene and measure 3D properties of objects in a given reference system using photos.

Who can attend? The course is for all ZMT Alumni and Doctoral Candidates at ZMT. Guest researchers and interested Postdocs can participate as well.

Maximum number of participants: 10

Requirements: Laptop, internet connection, installing a trial version of Agisoft Metashape (details will be provided in due time)
