3D Scanning and Spatial Analysis Research
Director Left: Assistant Professor Nick Webb, Computer Science
Director Right: Professor Steven Rice, Biology
The MakerWeb Consortium is assisting professor Nick Webb in the Computer Science Department and Professor Steven Rice in the Department of Biological Sciences to create 3D scans of various natural and built environments for analysis and research.
Professor Webb is using the 3D scans to create point clouds for autonomous robotic navigation and Professor Rice is creating scans of natural environments to study flora development.
