About the course

This course will offer an introduction to using 3D photogrammetry in recording the historic environment. It will outline what photogrammetry is and provide an overview of its potential applications in recording archaeology and built heritage. Guidance will be given on how to undertake a photogrammetric survey, including advice on image capture, as well as planning a survey. There will be an outdoor practical where participants will be undertaking the image capture of a built heritage structure. Training will also be given on processing a 3D model using bespoke software, as well as on exporting the results. 

This course is part of Stories in Stone, a scheme of conservation and community projects concentrated on the Ingleborough area. The scheme was developed by the Ingleborough Dales Landscape Partnership, led by Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The YDNPA (Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority) is a partner in the IDLP scheme and supporting Stories in Stone.
