3D Visualization for the Humanities: Photogrammetry Basics

Andrew Maurer (The Imaging Center, Smith College)

Please join the History of Art & Architecture's Image Resource Center for the first events in their 2019-2020 Digital Image Lab (DIL) series, Mapping. This ongoing series offers workshops and roundtables to explore and discuss mapping in a broad sense, including data visualization, map creation, digital recreation, as well as provide mapping tools and resources.

We are excited to inaugurate this year's series with two workshops given by Andrew Maurer, the Interactive Media Coordinator for The Imaging Center at Smith College. Andrew provides consultation for curricular and research projects combining art and technology, including media creation and editing software, 3D design software, 2D and 3D printing and scanning, and web-based projects. He will give both workshops on Friday, October 11.

The morning workshop will introduce Photogrammetry, the process of using still images to produce digital 3D models that provide new possibilities for visualizing and interpreting cultural objects. In this hands-on workshop, participants will create their own 3D model, learning best practices for achieving consistent, high-quality results. No experience required!
