This creative project provided the opportunity to learn several technologies needed for other research projects.
Photogrammetry and LIDAR can create a lot of data, require cleanup, and often expensive equipment or software. A few years ago a grad student and I tried looking at panoramic modeling software, but found the interface too challenging to use.
I started looking into workflows to get from 360 photos to simple 3D textured models using my favorite 3D modeling software. I worked a bit in the summer of 2019 and returned to finish it in July 2020.
This dojo model is a snapshot of my current progress.
