3D Workshop Program

Call for presenters

The program for the workshop at NSCC’s Centre of Geographic Sciences in the Annapolis Valley, Lawrencetown, is now available (see below).

The event will be a great opportunity to learn about the latest collection hardware and analysis and visualization software, from GIS to Virtual and Augmented Reality. From lidar, sonar, drones, & close range photogrammetry, just some examples of how we are collecting 3-D data.
