Gottingen Centre for Digital Humanities is running a spring school on 3D Modeling and Reconstruction with Blender & Unity 3D. The school will bring together 20 international students who are interested in learning how to model 3D objects, how to manage 3D data, and how to create virtual worlds in 3D. The school will be held on 2–6 March 2015 at the University of Göttingen in Germany.
3D visualization technologies enable and advance the preservation of and research on all kinds of cultural heritage. Modeling, visualizing and animating culturally important objects or sites via 3D technologies allow researchers a more detailed and high-resolution view on their research material.
The spring school will bring together 20 international students who are interested in learning how to model 3D objects, how to manage 3D data, and how to create virtual worlds in 3D. You will be acquainted with the modeling of 3D objects using Blender, the 3D reconstruction with VisualSFM and MeshLab, and the creation of 3D virtual worlds using Unity 3D. In the morning sessions you will be taught theory and essential knowledge about photogrammetry, meshing, etc. In the afternoon, you will deepen and broaden this knowledge in instructor-led labs where you will apply the methods you have been acquainted with.
The workshops will be led by Johanna Pirker and Phil Gosch who already ran the 3D strand of the DARIAH Summer School 2014.
