A Decade of Structure from Motion: Shaping Advances in Surface Process Understanding

Submit an Abstract to this Session

Session ID#: 25120

Session Description:
SfM developed from the disciplines of Computer Vision and Photogrammetry in the 1970s.  However, seminal papers in 2006 and 2008 marked the point at which researchers began to use SfM for 3D reconstruction in real-world applications. This led to the current rapid expansion of SfM methods in nearly all branches of the Earth Sciences. However, despite the growing uptake of SfM within geosciences, there is a lack of cross-disciplinary communication, which reduces our capacity to share techniques, ideas and approaches. This session aims to foster cross-disciplinary discussions and to attract researchers currently working with SfM from all surface process fields and using the full range of airborne, terrestrial and/or archival images. Research areas include, but are not limited to, the cryosphere, geomorphology, hazard assessment and planetary sciences. We seek abstracts from both experienced SfM practitioners, as well as colleagues new to the field who are presenting innovative applications of SfM.
