An Introductory Tutorial into 3D Visualisation of Cultural Heritage

Dear SEEDI list members,

An Introductory Tutorial into 3D Visualisation of Cultural Heritage will be held in Golden Sands Resort, Varna, Bulgaria, September 10, 2014. This seems to be unique opportunity for those willing to see how to use affordable tools for 3D scanning.

The tutorial is an acompanying event to AIMSA conference, see for more information below or on the conference website http://www.aimsaconference.org/


Cheers,

Milena Dobreva

This one day tutorial is designed to give delegates an introduction to
the theory, process and practice of capturing and preparing digital
models of cultural heritage artefacts and standing archaeology, and
how these digital objects can be used to enrich the understanding of
our past.

The day will be broken into two parts: theory and practice. The
morning session will consist of a series of lectures designed to
ground the delegates in the potential for digital cultural heritage,
the challenges of undertaking such a task and the current trends in
exploiting such digital resources. The second half of the day will
include a number of practical sessions allowing delegates to get hands
on experience with technologies available with an emphasis on low
cost, ease of use and sustainability.

Lecturers: Drew Baker and Martin Blazeby, KCL UK
