To advance our research on tree stem mapping using ground-based cameras, we need to acquire high quality videos on the ground using cellphones with optical image stabilization technology. Up to now, I have found 3 phones with this capability:…
I recently figured out how to animate models I've exported from Photoscan, so have a few animations I've made of the campus scan.
At Jonathan's request: sun paths.Continue
Another training complete! Eric Principato came down this weekend for flight training. We covered everything from mission planning to copter repair to Photoscan. Eric is starting a position analogous to mine, as the lab mechanical engineer for Dr. Lyndon Estes. Eric picked up piloting…Continue
This project develop a system which allows users to build interactively 3D models of real-world environments by means of mobile devices like smartphones and tablet computers. Regarding the repid progress in mobile technologies, this methodology bears tremendous potential by offering unprecedented interactivity and mobility. In particular, the feedback, provided to the user in the course of reconstruction, can assist his movements in order to construct a 3D model with the…Continue
It has now been a few months since I met Jonathan at AGU, and I have been meaning to get active in this community since then, but I am finally getting around to it. I suppose it is better late than never. As an introduction, I'll give you guys an overview of what we're doing here at Wake Forest University.
Our UAS program is run out of the Department of Biology by myself, a master's student, and 2 faculty members. We also involve 2 undergraduate…Continue
