Unity for Spatial Research: SpatioScholar
February 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST| Free
The workshop will provide participants with an introduction to the SpatioScholar workflow. SpatioScholar is an application developed in Unity for scholarly work that requires spatial and temporal processing and visualization in art/architectural/urban history and heritage studies. SpatioScholar provides a single interface for combining 3D modeled spaces, digitized primary documents, historical data and scholarly research and annotation. No prior knowledge of Unity is required. The team will demonstrate how to initiate a new SpatioScholar project with provided 3D models, an example project timeline, and provided primary documents.
Participants will learn to do the following using the 3D model and dataset:
(1) link the phases of a certain buildings or locations to a timeline slider for temporal simulation;
(2) connect primary documents to browse and review (photographs, drawings, textual primary documents etc.) within the 3D model
(3) leave notes, comments or browse others’ notes through the “Shared Scholarship” feature
Equipment Requirements: Laptop (Unity installed, specifications will be provided)
