2nd International Workshop

A tool for modern applications and CH recording

The event will take 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 modelling
  • 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.

Exploring underwater sites through virtual and augmented reality

Virtual and Augmented Reality (V&AR) technologies have demonstrated to be an effective tool for presenting cultural contents to general audiences and for engaging people in educational experiences. Nowadays, the opportunities offered by V&AR can be exploited to present and promote the Underwater Cultural Heritage (UCH) and to raise awareness about the need to preserve it for the generations to come. Photogrammetry and computer vision have been proved to be a valuable tool in gathering 3D data content for VR and AR applications in UCH. In fact, on the one hand, VR can improve the accessibility of the UCH for general audiences, without any constraint given by distance or time. On the other hand, AR is a valuable approach to improve the divers’ experience by enabling new ways to enjoy the underwater world. This presentation will describe case studies, opportunities, and open issues related to the use of V&AR for improving the accessibility of UCH to both divers and non-divers.
