03-10 or 10-17 July 2016, IASOS, (Bodrum) Turkey.

Course leader

Dr. Nicolas Gailhard
Archaeologist specializing in ancient metallurgy, graduated of Paris 1 Sorbonne Nouvelle University, associate member of a CNRS research team, graduate pilot drone.

Target group

PhD students, young researchers and advanced users of new sensor technologies and methods for digital recording and modeling in cultural heritage and environmental applications.

Course aim

The Summer School aims to bring together young scientists, developers and advanced users from geomatics, cultural heritage, archaeology, environmental monitoring and mapping fields to study and discuss the latest developments of drone platforms and related data processing procedures. Drones have recently become a powerful platform for aerial data acquisition. Drones are a low-cost alternative to the classical manned aerial photogrammetry specifically for large-scale topographic mapping or detailed 3D
recording of ground information. Drones are also a valid complementary solution to terrestrial acquisitions. The Summers School will deal with the digital recording and 3D modeling of complex objects and scenarios, with emphasis on those of cultural and natural heritage value, considering the entire workflow from platform and flight preparation, to data acquisition and processing and final graphical restitution. We will use free software for make the 3D solution like VisualSFM and MeshLab.
