The Project Week is an international course offering a combination of exercises for a virtual simulation of a 3D scanner (VirScan3D) and real application of 3D terrestrial laser scanning of historic buildings at the University of Bamberg. It offers practical experience in virtual and real scanning and an introduction to the theoretical basics of laser scanning technologies, construction of the scanners and application areas.

The 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanning. From simulation to real scanning - International Project Week is aimed at students from German and international universities who wish to try a completely new technology of virtual 3D scanning, to compare it with experience in real life and expand understanding of laser scanning technologies with their evaluation and visualisation.

This event is part of a DAAD-funded project. It is lead by Prof. Dr. Thomas Luhmann from Jade University of Applied Sciences in Oldenburg, Germany, and co-taught by Prof. Dr. Mona Hess and Dr. Maria Chizhova, Digital Technologies in Heritage Conservation, University of Bamberg, as well as Dr. Denys Gorkovchuk, Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture (Faculty of Geoinformation Systems and territory Management).

This project week is part of the DAAD-project "VirScan3D - Virtual Simulator for Teaching Environments in 3D Digitalisation", which itself is part of the German-Ukraine University Partnership 2019-2021 “Support and Internationalization of Ukraine Universities”

The course is held in English. Preferable, but not required is an affinity for digital surveying techniques.

There is no registration feeEligibility for participation is online application and enrolment at one of the partner universities (Bamberg, KNUCA or Oldenburg). Costs for travels and accomodation (youth hostel) for the students from the participating partner organisations of this project are covered by the organizers. Lunches are self-pay. The number of non-Bamberg participants is limited to 6 students, total number to 12 students. Participants will have to sign an insurance and liability waiver, and photography and recording agreement.
