Subject: Photogrammetry Training at The Postal Museum in September
Through the London Museum Development Digital Futures Scheme we're
happy to be offering a free one-day photogrammetry training workshop
at The Postal Museum Digitisation Studio on Tuesday 4th September.
Run by myself, Hannah Winn (The Postal Museum) and Alec Ward (London
Museum Development, Museum of London) this course will cover the
absolute basics and is aimed at cultural heritage professionals in
general, so please do share with your colleagues outside of the
studio, but is also well suited as an introduction to photogrammetry
for photographers and imaging techs. We'll go through the whole
process of capture, processing and building a model using Agisoft
Photoscan (a free demo can be downloaded). We'll also discuss
different software options and scanning technology with side-by-side
Priority is given to staff/volunteers working at non-national London museums.
