Summary and Tasks Reminder

This lesson hopefully conveyed how creative and exciting the developments are that allow for the creation of 3D models and VR content. There are classic approaches coming out of photogrammetry, such as structure from motion mapping (SFM), that existed for a long time but only recently reached a mature level. There are creative minds that combine different technologies such as Google Earth and SFM to simulate fly overs and much more. The article we integrated by Chen and Clarke was only been presented in September 2016, so very recent. As we have been successfully using it in our own work, we thought we would integrate it into this lesson. It is a really fast-moving field and if anything, many products will become even more mature over the next years with numerous start-ups pushing into the market.
