This free, online, 2-hour Digitization Academy course positions the biodiversity collections and research communities to contribute high-fidelity digital captures of biodiversity for emerging opportunities in immersive media, including augmented, mixed, and virtual reality and 360-degree photography/videography. We will introduce workhorse structure-from-motion and cutting-edge, AI-enabled NeRF 3D modeling techniques, best-in-class examples of their utility, and potential new directions in the space for the biodiversity collections community. Participants will gain an understanding of how immersive media approaches can be applied for research, education, and outreach. The course is open to everyone from the biodiversity collections and adjacent communities from around the world.

This course is offered through iDigBio's Digitization Academy.

The course will be delivered in English.
