When skeletons meet 21st century 3D technologies

21st August 2018, 14:30 to 15:00, Palace Green Library (Learning Centre)

14:30 - 15:00

Free - booking required

Kamal Badreshany, Research Associate in the Department of Archaeology, Durham University

Photogrammetry, broadly speaking, is the science of making measurements from photographs to locate the exact position of any number of individual surface points. By using software that integrates the ‘Structure from Motion (SfM)’ range imaging technique, a highly accurate 3D model can be produced from a series of overlapping 2D images.

This talk by Dr Kamal Badreshany (Department of Archaeology, Durham University) will examine and demonstrate how 3D models of bones are constructed using SfM photogrammetry and the process 3D printing. The broader role of 3D technologies in the Sottish soldiers project will also be discussed.

This event is free, but booking is required via Eventbrite due to limited places.
