Replicate

First consortium publication presented at the 7th International Workshop 3D ARCH in Nafplio, Greece.

March 1st - 3rd, 2017, Nafplio, Greece

From the 1st to the 3rd of March, the 7th International Workshop ‘3D ARCH – 3D Virtual Reconstruction and Visualization of Complex Architectures’ (www.3d-arch.org) was held in the beautiful city of Nafplio, Greece. 3D ARCH is a series of successful events organized by two international societies, the ‘International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing’ (ISPRS, http://www.isprs.org/) and ‘Comité International de la Photogrammétrie Architecturale’ (English: ‘International Committee of Architectural Photogrammetry’, CIPA, cipa.icomos.org).

The main topics of the workshop focused on 3D reconstruction, modelling and VT/AT applications for visualization and conservation of complex architectures and heritage. It represented the perfect scene to present the REPLICATE first-year results. The speech, discussing the paper entitled ‘A smartphone-based 3D pipeline for the creative industry' – the REPLICATE EU project – (download pdf here), was followed by a demo, which showed, in real time, the best frame selector app, SfM server and point cloud editing app running on a mobile phone. The audience revealed great interest, and many are looking forward to using the REPLICATE tools.
