Introduction to Structure from Motion (SfM) Photogrammetry for Earth Science Research and Education short course (Sept. 24, 2016 at the GSA meeting)

Chris Crosby (UNAVCO), Ed Nissen (Colorado School of Mines), and I recently ran a one day short course at the Geological Society of America Meeting on an Introduction to Structure from Motion (SfM) Photogrammetry for Earth Science Research and Education. We had a good time sharing our enthusiasm for Structure from Motion with the group of 25 or so enthusastic participants. They came from a range of backgrounds as educators as well as researchers in active faulting, geomorphology, sedimentary geology, engineering, and more.

The course web site has some very useful content lectures and exercises. And, Chris reminded us of some quite helpful SfM docmentation that he and Katherine Shervais put together:

The workshop was co-sponsored by UNAVCO as well as OpenTopography. At OpenTopography, we are staring to provide SfM data and are working to build a drag and drop capability for user contributed correctly documented SfM datasets.
