Heritage Visualisation Lab

The lab objective is to develop and provide hands-on skills and in-depth understanding of scientific authentication of computer-based documentation and visualisation in the field of heritage conservation.

The lab specialices in applications and technologies for documentation, visualisation, and simulation of historical sites and artefacts. Tools and technologies available for researchers include Structure-from-Motion (Agisoft PhotoScan server), laser scanning (Konica Minolta vi-9i), and Virtual Reality simulation (Oculus Rift). The lab has also expertise in applications for 3d modelling (Sketchup and Maya), mesh-processing (Meshlab), interactive visualisation (Unity 3d), and Augmented Reality (Vuforia).

In the course given by the lab, students are trained to carry out photogrammetric documentation of heritage objects, buildings and environments, and to model, visualise, and simulate interpretations and associated research data.
