Greenspace Voxels at the Newlyn Art Gallery

Started: March 27, 2017, 11 a.m.
Ended: March 27, 2017, 2 p.m.


We'll be showcasing our Greenspace Voxels project at the Newlyn Art Gallery as part of a week of Palace of Cultures events curated by the Keiken Collective.

We have been visualising cities in 3D using minecraft and physical models, using voxel data from full-waveform LiDAR (laser scanning landscapes from aircraft). We are looking at ways to visualise only the greenspace in cities, with all the buildings and roads removed - for environmental connectivity research and more thoughtful urban planning.

The event takes the form of a 40 minutes of talks followed by time to explore the physical and digital models. Karen Anderson, a researcher who uses unmanned aerial vehicles for environmental research, will introduce the project 'F3UES', waveform lidar, voxels and suburbia. Stefano Casalegno will explain the complexities of visualising 3D data, and give a taster of his work so far on connectivity using 2D rendered summaries of the voxel data. FoAM Kernow will be demonstrating some of the ways that we can visualise these data in tangible and digital forms - including a space where participants can play with the models in minecraft.
