Workshop: Digital Photogrammetry for Structural Geologists, Montgenèvre, 1 July 2018

1 July, 2018


Dr Stefan Vollgger from Monash University, Australia will give a 1-day workshop on the principles of Structure-from-Motion and how to use this technique to aid 3D visualisation and interpretation of field data.

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.
