One of the new and exciting research and practice oriented frontiers we are currently pursuing is geotechnical imaging. Geotechnical imaging combines the fields of image processing, image analysis, geophysics, visualization, and engineering geology to enhance and augment information which is available to geotechnical engineers. We are currently working on several interesting projects
Advanced Rock Core Documentation
Core documentation is no longer limited to static photographs. We are using surface laser scanning (NextEngine), animated gifs, Cross Specimen Acoustic Tomography, X-ray CT scanning, and other techniques to document rock cores before destructive testing.
Photogrammetry for Construction and Inspection
We are currently exploring the uses of 2D and 3D photogrammetry techniques for earthwork construction projects and infrastructure assessment. We are currently using PHOTOMODELER and PhotoScan.
