The Capturing Reality Forum took place at the Salzburg Congress in Salzburg, Austria, from 23-25 November 2015. The Forum provided an inspiring platform for professionals to meet, learn and share ideas with industry’s best with a focus on technologies of laser scanning, LiDAR and 3D data capture and modeling.
A tendency can be observed, in which photogrammetry in near real-time processing plays a significant role in obstacle detection and semantic recognition from images to be implemented in road traffic solutions. The major problem is, to filter out the relevant data from massive image data, says keynote speaker, Luc Van Gool (ETH Zürich). In this context LIDAR and photogrammetry have been competing for some time. UNIGIS Salzburg offers a photogrammetry course and a LIDAR course will start in early 2016.
UNIGIS Salzburg participated at the Forum and provided information at the UNIGIS booth. An UNIGIS Come-Together with after-conference drinks and interesting talks took place on Tuesday.
