From 2D photos to 3D models

The upcoming NLAS workshop “From 2D photos to 3D models” is scheduled for 1-4 pm on Saturday, May 26th. This workshop will provide an introduction to the construction of 3D digital models from photos, of artifacts, archaeological features, and landscapes. It will showcase some of the diverse ways 3D photogrammetry techniques are being used, as well as show you how to implement them to suit your projects. This workshop will include:
– Highlights of the use of 3D photogrammetry in archaeology
– A basic tutorial, using an open-source software package and photo set (both to be provided)
– Tips and tricks for 3D model success, both in the field and in the lab

The use of a personal laptop computer (one on which software can be installed) is required for this workshop, and attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a digital camera (a smartphone will work) and bring the means to transfer photos from the camera to the laptop if they wish to try their hand at creating their own photo set and assembling a 3D model (a photo set will, in any case, be provided).

Date and time: Saturday, May 26th, 1-4 pm
Location: Q-2013, Queens College, MUN
Cost: $10 for NLAS members, $20 for non-members
To register, or for more info, e-mail

Stay tuned in the coming months for details regarding a 2-day artifact photogrammetry workshop in October, led by Dr. George Bevan from Queen’s University and organized by the Shipwreck Preservation Society.
Once again, thank you for your continued support as a member, and we hope to see you at the workshop!
