Planetary Data Training Workshop – Planetary Photogrammetry

Planetary Data Training Workshop – Planetary Photogrammetry

University of Arizona, Space Imagery Center
September 12th to 15th, 2023

In this workshop we introduce the basic principles of photogrammetry and the skills necessary to make a Digital Terrain Model from stereo image pairs. Participants will go through the process of creating a DTM and orthorectified images with a HiRISE stereo pair using BAE’s SOCET SET software and 3D hardware. We will also cover the use of Ames Stereo Pipeline and Structure-from-Motion (SfM) using Agisoft Metashape. The workshop is intended for researchers at any level who want to learn to generate their own stereo products. No prior expertise is required. 

Due to the specialized hardware required, attendance is in-person only and is limited to 10 people. There is no fee to attend, but participants are responsible for their own travel expenses. We offer two travel grants of up to $2000 each that focus on new planetary students from underrepresented communities.
