Are you wondering what's next in Digital Aerial Archaeology?
Do you agree there is much more in a JPG than “just” cropmarks or soilmarks?
Do you believe there should be a way to make the landscape digitally measurable without the costs for a LiDAR scan?
There is a unique possibility for you: 2D-3D-4D... DIY Workshop – Digital Landscape “on demand”.
2D-3D-4D is a Do It Yourself “easy” workshop organized at Amersfoort (NL) just after the AARG 2013 conference (http://www.decars.nl/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=124&Itemid=76&lang=en).
It is ”Do It Yourself” because, besides some general topics and the outline of the event, the program will be put together by you, by your needs -involving photogrammetry and free (or affordable) software/solutions-, by your specific research goals and question or simply by your area of interest.
It is an informal, friendly and open hands-on experience, where you will be provided with basic training with free software or where you can discuss and share your own way of doing things.
2D-3D-4D DIY workshop will be problem-solving oriented, and some of the problems (presented together with a possible solution) are:
- Is “vertical” the same as “ortho” photo? How can I go from one to the other? [2D]
- I need a quite accurate 3D model of my area of study but I have just a couple of vertical photos from the National Army. Can photogrammetry do it for me? Or is LiDAR the only solution to all my problems? [3D]
- Assuming I get a 3D model out of photos from the 50's, how can I measure or compare the changes occurred until today? [4D]
The above questions (together with the one you will formulate during your application) will find an answer during the 2 days intensive workshop to take place on September 30th and October 1st in Amersfoort at the Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed.
The workshop is provided for free, but you will be asked to take with you your own laptop or getting ready to share the work with someone else's laptop. No workstations will be provided for the workshop.
You may want to consider applying for a workshop grant from ArcLand, the deadline being 11th July 2013, 13:00 h (Amersfoort time). Notification of acceptance/rejection of the applications will be given by 16th July the latest. Alternatively you can apply for an ArcLand conference grant if you wish to attend the AARG conference as well and want to extend your visit in Amersfoort. You can find the rules and forms for ArcLand grants at http://www.archaeolandscapes.eu/index.php/en/outreach/grants.html. Proof of participation in this conference will be expected from all successful conference grant applicants. The deadline for applications for a conference grant will be extended also until 11th July 2013, 13:00 h (Amersfoort time) for participants of the 2D-3D-4D DIY workshop.
Please note that the workshop registration does not include the AARG conference registration! Please also note that workshop participants can register for the AARG conference with the early bird registration fee until 17th July, using the AARG conference payment form!
