On the Radio
While some historic structures around the world are deteriorating, members of USF's Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies (AIST) are using high-tech 3D imaging tools to help capture a virtual version of them for future use.
And as these tools get smaller and more powerful, the importance of their job grows. Find out more on this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
Radio - During "Morning Edition" on WUSF 89.7 Tuesday after the 6:30 AM and 8:30 AM newscasts | During "All Things Considered" on WUSF 89.7 Tuesday at 5:44 PM | After "Florida Matters" on WSMR 89.1 Monday at 10:30 PM
Television - Tuesdays at 11:55 AM and 8:55 PM, and various times throughout the rest of the week
Travis Doering, PhD, director of USF’s Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies, or AIST, explains how 3D imaging works, and also talks about some of the other tools they use to put together a full virtual rendering of a structure.
Lori Collins, PhD, director of USF’s Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies, or AIST, talks about how 3D imaging tools have evolved: much smaller than before, but more powerful than ever.
