Exploring Contexts

Over the last few years (literally), advances in the field of computer vision and development of a technology referred to as ‘Structure from Motion’ has seen an explosion of online applications that enable users to create and explore 3D environments through imagery captured with their own digital cameras.

Whilst many in the heritage sector, including universities, have dabbled in using and trialling the technology, no one seems to have grabbed it by the horns and adopted its usage on a medium – large scale project.

CSI: Rombalds Moor aims to put this right, by embracing the panoramic and zooming capabilities of Microsoft’s Photosynth. This application was the first to bring the new technology to the masses when launched in August 2008, and still remains one of the best.

Panoramas will be uploaded as the project progresses, and can be found at here:
