The workshop is aimed at familiarizing students, researchers and faculty members about emerging trends/paradigms of data visualization; namely Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) and their utility as research tools, are going to be a part of the discussion. Furthermore, this workshop will explore 3Dmapping technologies such as ArcGIS, City Engine, Unity Game Engine to manipulate and analyze spatial/geographic data to better understand the urban spatial, historical context.
Participants of the workshop are faculties, students and research scholars from Jorhat Engineering College, Rajiv Gandhi University of Cooperative Management, Assam Women University, Royal Global University and NEIST Jorhat, Kaziranga University.
Participants experienced several real-world pedagogical projects as examples and how to tackle various pre-optimization issues with regards to web deployment. Experts discussed the entire 3D visualization pipeline (from asset creation to delivery; with examples) and discussed the complexity of the underlying framework. Experts also discussed user analytics of immersive experiences and shared some of their research findings on immersive VR applications. Lastly, the experts from Emory University showcased Emory University-Kaziranga University joint collaborative project “Spatial mapping of ancient Ahom Kingdom”.
The eminent speakers are Dr. Kaushal Kumar Bhagat from IIT Kharagpur, Dr. Aryabrata Basu from Emory University USA, Dr. Micheal Page from Emory University USA, Prof. Tarun Kumar from Kaziranaga University and Dr. Sajal Saha from Kaziranga University.
