During October a meeting between the Italian and Spanish partners took place at Politecnico di Milano to share experiences and results regarding the completion of their case studies. Several research lines and transfer of technology were discussed, being the critical issues:
(i) different alternatives of image-based modeling and multi-data fusion procedures;
(ii) mesh simplification and optimization to improve the results exportation, either for visualization or analysis purposes, as the stability of the CH asset;
(iii) reverse modeling techniques to give an added value to the final diachronic 3D models, taking into account object’s complexity and non-parametric modeling limitations;
(iv) the current state of advancement of the project deliverables.
The CHT2 project has met today in Nafplio (Greece), in the framework of the 3DARC conference (http://www.3d-arch.org), for a midterm update about the various activities at M18.
The whole Description Of Work (DOW) of the project was reviewed and discussed by all the partners, defining strategies for respecting the various commitments despite the administrative difficulties met, not depending on the partners will.
The actual individual at the meeting were: Jon Mills from Newcastle University (NCL); Diego Gonzàles Aguilera and Pablo Rodríguez Gonzálvez from University of Salamanca (USAL); Slawomir Mikrut form Scientific Stanisław Staszic Association (SSSA); Gabriele Guidi and Sara Gonizzi Barsanti from Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI).
Although already started from September 1st 2015 mainly with management activities, the operating stage of CHT2 started on January 25th 2016 at 9:00 with the kick-off meeting.
Held in Milan (Italy) at the Bovisa Campus of Politecnico di Milano, it had the active participation of all european partners.
The actual individual at the meeting were: Gabriele Guidi, Sara Gonizzi Barsanti, Laura Loredana Micoli, Davide Angheleddu, Diana Canova, Vanessa Caterina Tritone from Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI); Jon Mills and Ian Haynes from Newcastle University (NCL); Diego Gonzàles Aguilera from University of Salamanca (USAL); Beata Hejmanowska form Scientific Stanisław Staszic Association (SSSA).
After a general introduction of Gabriele Guidi (POLIMI) regarding the project aims, and a presentation of all the disciplinary profiles of the individuals present at the meeting, a specific discussion about the activities to pursue in the different Work Packages was made. Diego Gonzales Aguilera from USAL introduced the activities to be made for the Methodology Definition (WP2); Gabriele Guidi from POLIMI for the Data Collection & 4D Model Creation (WP3); Beata Hejmanowska from SSSA for 4D Model Publication (WP4); and Jon Mills from NCL for Dissemination and Exploitation (WP5).
