3D ARCH 2017





7th International Workshop

3D ARCH 2017

- 3D Virtual Reconstruction and Visualization of Complex Architectures and Environments -

3D-ARCH is a series of international workshops which started in 2005 in Venice and move throughout the years to Zurich (2007), Trento (2009, 2011, 2013) and Avila (2015), organized as an ISPRS and CIPA event.

The main focus of the workshop is to discuss steps and processes for smart 3D reconstruction, modelling, accessing and understanding of digital scenarios from multiple data sources. Topics include:

  • Multi-source data and multi-sensors approaches
  • Low-cost sensors and open-source algorithms for terrestrial 3D modeling
  • Automation in data registration
  • Image matching and 3D reconstruction
  • Point cloud analysis
  • 4D modelling
  • Procedural modeling and BIM
  • Accuracy requirement and assessment in 3D reconstructions
  • 3D applications in terrestrial and underwater environments
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality applied to the visualization and conservation of complex environments and heritage
