Conference Sessions: Virtual Reality
Back to Reality: From Scan to Model to VRClick to Open
Perched atop the majestic hilltops in Tuscany, Volterra is an ancient Italian city, continuously inhabited for 3 millennia. This session explores the use of lidar and photogrammetry to capture and compile point clouds, mesh models, Revit models and virtual reality experiences documenting the city’s priceless treasures. Participants in International Reality Capture Workshops, held annually in Volterra, gain unique access to equipment, expertise and timeless architectural and archaeological treasures. The team consists of professionals from around the globe and local practitioners living and working in and around Volterra. This session will take you on a tour of Volterra and the data captured there (over 3 terabytes!) We’ll explore the point clouds, the tools we used to process them, Building Information Models created from the data, and finally some video and virtual reality experiences of the results. This session will show you a small cross-section of this exciting and ongoing work!
