Want to learn more about Engineering, Computing and Design? Come to an Engage lecture. Organised by the new Bangor IEEE Student Branch, and hosted in the School of Computer Science, academics and leaders give fascinating lectures about core technologies, modern ideas, or key principles.
The first "Engage" lecture will be held: Wednesday 4th October, 12 noon, Main Lecture Theatre (MLT), Dean Street
Join us on Wednesday the 4th, at 12 p.m. in MLT, Dean Street where we will have a special lecture from Professor Roberts, some free refreshments provided, and elect a new treasurer for the society (please message the Instagram page to nominate yourself or email our chair firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to be nominated but cannot make the meeting, please also provide a couple of sentences as to why you should be our treasurer).
Professor Jonathan C. Roberts has research interests in exploratory and explanatory Information visualisation.
Harnessing Photogrammetry to Create Alternative Visualisation Models of Heritage
"In this work I will discuss and present diverse ways to display data and images from heritage sites. We, as scientists, researchers, and archaeologists, need ways to preserve our heritage for future generations.
Heritage sites are eroding away, and there are many sites that are perilously close to the coast. Our solution is to use photogrammetry: where 2D photographs are changed into 3D models through mapping and matching pixels between photographs.
What can we do with the data? How can we display it? Come and find out more."
Collaborating in multidisciplinary teams (including, law, security, media, archaeology, ocean science) he investigates novel ways to display and analyse data, to create novel exploratory solutions, alternative views and tell stories with data. His research is creative, focusing on the design and development of interactive visualisation solutions. He is best known for his work on Multiple Coordinated Views and the development of the Five Design-Sheets (FdS) design method. He co-authored the book Five Design-Sheets: Creative Design and Sketching for Computing and Visualisation, Springer Nature, June 2017."
