2nd International Workshop

A tool for modern applications and CH recording

The event will took place at the Cyprus University of Technology facilities. We are looking forward to welcome researchers, practicioners and companies in the field of UW photogrammetry, computer vision, image processing, VR and AR as well as archaeologists to present and discuss their results and activities

The event follows on from a successful workshop held in 2015 in Sorrento, first on this topic and is aiming to bring together researchers, users and interested person in the field of underwater 3D surveying (photogrammetry, bathymetry, etc.), Virtual and Augmented reality. The event will feature 2 days of single-track technical sessions and invited talks, oral presentations, posters and demos. Topics include:

  • Underwater photogrammetry
  • 3D reconstruction for VR and AR applications
  • Underwater Cultural Heritage and Archaeology
  • Underwater 3D metrology
  • Marine biology
  • Underwater 3D scanning
  • Underwater platforms (ROV, robots, etc.)
  • 4D underwater modelling
  • 3D bathymetry
  • Active and passive sensors integration and fusion
  • Data processing and 3D modeling
  • Reference control and accuracy assessment

Omnidirectional Underwater Computer Vision Research and Applications at the University of Girona

For the last 20 years the University of Girona (UdG) has been developing methods for image processing, mapping and interpretation of underwater environments. The resulting technology has been applied in a wide range of fields including marine biology, geology, archaeology and the positioning and navigation of autonomous systems. A recent focus has been given to the use of omnidirectional multicamera systems which allow for a very efficient use of the survey mission time due to the multiple observations of the structures being imaged. This talk will overview the research activities of the UdG with emphasis on the use of omnidirectional computer vision for 3D mapping and their applications.

3D presentation of underwater cultural heritage: challenges, opportunities and future prospects

As development and resource extraction intensifies in the marine zone, there is a clear need to increase awareness of UCH and offer practical and cost effective pathways for protecting it and presenting it to the public. Digital visualisation seeming offers the potential do this. With the proliferation of low-cost commercial devices enabling sophisticated immersive experiences, a follow on boom in the design of immersive content was expected. How far has this happened in relation to UCH content? Are we now able to present UCH to the public in effective ways? Is there any consensus on how to publish, share and store 3D models once they are created? Should there be? Using case studies the author has been involved in, this presentation will critically examine the effectiveness of attempts to engage public audiences with 3D digital content and what challenges still remain.
