Dear UNAVCO Community,

UNAVCO is pleased to be sponsoring two one-day courses at GSA in Seattle
this fall.

   - 502: High Resolution Topography & 3D Imaging 1: Introduction to
   Terrestrial Lidar Scanning
   - 513: High Resolution Topography & 3D Imaging 2: Introduction to
   Structure from Motion (SfM) Photogrammetry

The courses provide a combination of lectures and hands-on demonstrations
of the imaging technologies. They may be taken together s a series or
individually.

Early-bird pricing ends on *September 18th*, so we encourage you to
register immediately. After this deadline, course costs increase by $30.

*502. High Resolution Topography & 3D Imaging 1: Introduction to
Terrestrial Lidar Scanning*
Fri. 20 Oct., 8am - 5pm
Cost: US$52. Limit 24. CEU: 0.8
Instructors: Marianne Okal, UNAVCO; Christopher Crosby, UNAVCO
Co-Sponsor: UNAVCO
Abstract: This one-day course will provide faculty, students, and
professionals with an introduction to Terrestrial Lidar Scanning (TLS -
a.k.a ground-based lidar) for research and education. TLS provides
high-resolution three-dimensional images of geologic features and has
emerged as a powerful tool for applications ranging from outcrop mapping to
an analysis of earth-surface processes. The course will focus on TLS
technology, data collection, processing and analysis, and examples of
science and educational applications. A combination of lectures and
hands-on demonstrations of TLS equipment and data processing will be used.
Limited financial support is available for students (see the UNAVCO Short
Course Series page). This course can be taken alone or together with "High
Resolution Topography and 3D Imaging II: Introduction to Structure from
Motion (SfM) Photogrammetry" (course #513) for an introduction to 3D
imaging technology that compliments TLS.

*513. High Resolution Topography & 3D Imaging 2: Introduction to Structure
from Motion (SfM) Photogrammetry*
Sat. 21 Oct., 8am - 5pm
Cost: US$52. Limit 40. CEU: 0.8
Instructors: Edwin Nissen, Colorado School of Mines; Ramon Arrowsmith,
Arizona State Univ.; Christopher Crosby, UNAVCO
Co-Sponsor: UNAVCO
Abstract: Structure from Motion (SfM), a photogrammetric technique that
uses overlapping images to construct 3D surface models, is quickly emerging
as a valuable research and education tool in geodesy, geomorphology,
structural geology, and related disciplines. Images can be collected with a
standard consumer-grade camera, making SfM a low-cost tool that compliments
other 3D imaging technologies, such as terrestrial and aerial laser
scanning (LiDAR). SfM can be collected from a hand-held camera or an
airborne platform such as an aircraft, tethered balloon, kite or UAS
(unmanned aerial system), enabling 3D imaging of features ranging in size
from decimeters to several kilometers. This one-day course will provide
faculty, students, and professionals with an introduction to SfM
technology, data collection and processing, and examples of science and
educational applications. A combination of lectures and hands-on
demonstrations of SfM equipment and data processing will be used. This
course can be taken alone, or together with "High Resolution Topography and
3D Imaging I: Introduction to Terrestrial Lidar Scanning" (course #502) for
an introduction to 3D imaging technology that compliments SfM.
