UPCOMING EVENT: AACAI Photogrammetry Workshop



AACAI Committee

AACAI is hosting a Photogrammetry for Archaeological Consulting Workshop on September 22, which will be presented by Andrew Wilkinson. The workshop will be held at Biosis Pty Ltd, 38 Bertie Street, Port Melbourne.

The one day workshop is designed as an intensive course to introduce the basics of photogrammetry and how this technique can be applied in archaeological consulting. The workshop will cover the application of photogrammetry in archaeology, how to capture the subject, how to process the images, and applications for presenting the final product.

At the completion of this workshop, participants will have an understanding of photogrammetry and be able to record a subject and produce their own photogrammetric models.

Due to the practical nature of this workshop participation will be limited to 20 people. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided. Numerous lunch venues exist within close proximity to the venue.

The workshop will be demonstrated with Photoscan Standard edition. Participants should bring a laptop with Agisoft Photoscan software installed, a digital camera (DSLR preferred) and notebook. Participants will be working in groups, so those who do not have access to a laptop, the Photoscan software or a camera, should be able to work alongside someone who does.

Agisoft Photoscan software download and computer requirements are available from their website: http://www.agisoft.com/ 30 day trial and education licenses are available. Notes will be made available to participants prior to the workshop. Participants will receive a Certificate of Participation.

Cost: AACAI members $150, Non-AACAI members $200
