Spring 2023 FSU Libraries Photogrammetry Institute

The Photogrammetry Institute is a semester-long series of talks and workshops centered on approaches to (and applications of) 3D data modeling in scholarly and creative academic fields, hosted by the Florida State University Libraries’ Office of Digital Research and Scholarship. Our program explores the multivalent uses of computer-aided remote sensing approaches (with an emphasis on 3D and photogrammetry) across the sciences and humanities to foster a collaborative, cross-disciplinary environment for the exchange of ideas.  Events will rotate between project showcases, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops throughout the semester.

Upcoming events

Event 6: Implementation:
Classical Archaeology

Friday March 24th
Location: William Johnston Building, G40

10-11:30 AM

Join Dr. Andrea De Giorgi, Matthew Hunter, and Allison Elizabeth Smith for a discussion surrounding the challenges,
strategies, and opportunities of photogrammetry and 3D modeling in archaeological research.
Panelists will additionally address the intersections of these technologies and techniques with
cultural heritage research, preservation, and education— particularly as they pertain to museums and public engagement.

Event 7: Publication

Friday April 7th
Location: Strozier 107A (Zimmerman Instruction Room)

10-11:30 AM

This event will discuss platforms and strategies such as Sketchfab and Thingiverse as a means of sharing out 3D models produced by photogrammetry.
It will also discuss how sharing 3D models can be used for the promotion of
cultural heritage preservation, conservation, and scholarly outputs such as publications.

Past events

Event 1: Capture

Friday January 13th 
Location: Dirac Science Library, Instruction Lab Classroom (208)

10-11:30 AM

Join Marcelina Nagales (Research Computing Center) and Dr. Mark Bourassa (Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies)
as they discuss their use of various remote sensing technologies and how data capture, processing, and presentation
aid their research practices. No prior experience necessary.

Event 2: Process

Friday, January 27th 
Location: Dirac Science Library, Instruction Lab Classroom (208)

10-11:30 AM

Marcelina Nagales joins us again to discuss best practices in 3D modeling within cultural heritage contexts.
This talk will highlight key differences between conventional 3D scanning methods and photogrammetric
technologies and how their applications differ for use in digital reconstruction.

Event 3: Applications of Photogrammetry:
Film and Popular Media

Friday February 17th
Location: William Johnston Building, G40

10-11:30 AM

Join immersive scholarship graduate assistant Amanda Brito for a presentation on
the evolution of visual effects and photogrammetric technology
in films such as The Matrix (1999) and Fight Club (1999).
The lecture will be followed by a discussion of the digital humanities in relation to contemporary popular media.

Event 4: Applications of Photogrammetry:
Dance and the Digital Arts

Friday February 24th
Location: Innovation Hub Pitch Room (LSB 112)

10-11:30 AM

Join the FSU Innovation Hub for a panel discussion centered on approaches to 3D technology in both dance and the digital arts.
Panelists include Daniel Smith, Keith Roberson, and Tiffany Rhynard.

Event 5: Documentation and Preservation

Friday March 10th
Location: William Johnston Building, G40

10-11:30 AM

Join the FSU libraries as we bring together 3D research practitioners and library professionals to discuss the
technological infrastructure components needed to best suit the demands of their research.
Discussion will be led by Dr. Michael Carrasco and Dave Rodriguez and include topics such as
model reproducibility, preservation, dissemination, and Paradata.
