This course provides an introduction to Photogrammetry, or the creation of three-dimensional (3D) models from two-dimensional (2D) data obtained from photographs, while introducing related 3D concepts and technologies. Along with basic 3D concepts (point clouds, meshes, file formats) there will be an overview and experience of creating and managing 3D images, which will provide a better understanding of the process of capturing 3D data from a variety of objects (from a stone to a city). Specialist software (e.g. Agisoft Metashape) will be introduced in order to build a 3D model from a series of photos, using a trial version of the product to produce and adjust your 3D model.

Exploring some of the competing methods of capturing 3D data in several fields, including 3D scanning and CT scanning, will be combined with an overview of preparing the results for use in research, in publications, and in VR/AR/XR projects. In addition, some useful sources of information and guidance will be provided, along with software and hardware tips and some of the key repositories used for sharing your models, or for making use of models made by others, or just for getting inspired. This course also will provide an opportunity to meet others who are already using or would like to use photogrammetry or other 3D technologies in their research or personal projects.

PHP: From Basics to Data Collection Through a Webform Tue 10 Mar 2020   09:30 [Places]

This PHP introduction course explores the basic elements of PHP script programming. PHP allows web developers to write dynamic web pages, for instance by simplifying ways to collect data through a web form, and to process and include data, by placing small scripts directly into HTML files.

Session 1 will provide background, tools and exercises for writing and editing PHP in HTML files, uploading them to a web server, and making them available online. There will also be an introduction to programming in PHP, to help enable you to later adapt the examples to address your more advanced examples and projects.

Session 2 will extend the simpler exercises in Session 1, adding more options and capabilities, as well as providing new and more advanced examples. Using the tools and techniques from Session 1, there will be opportunities to adjust and partly customise the examples, and if time permits potentially begin a small exercise of your own.

This course is part of the Scientific Computing series.

This course is aimed at those new to programming, or who have never been formally taught the principles and basic concepts of programming. It provides an introduction to the basic concepts common to most high level languages (including Python, Java, Fortran, C, C++, Visual Basic). The aim of the course is to equip attendees with the background knowledge and confidence necessary to tackle many on-line and printed programming tutorials. It may also help attendees in deciding which programming language is suitable for their programming task.

Knowledge of the concepts presented in this course is a pre-requisite for many of the other courses in the Scientific Computing series of courses (although not for the "Python for Absolute Beginners" course).
