Workshop : Digitising Religious Architectural Heritage in Ibadan (3D modelling)
Between the 6th and the 9th of November, IFRA-Nigeria organised a training in photogrammetry and 3D modelling as part of its research project on the religious architectural heritage of Ibadan. The training was provided by Marjorie Coulin, an Engineer at ICONEM. Founded in 2013, Iconem is an innovative French startup that specialises in the digitisation of endangered cultural heritage sites in 3D.
Marjorie Coulin also facilitated the digitisation of three important religious buildings in Ibadan. The Cathedral of St James the great, the Sabo Central Mosque and the Cathedral of St Peters in Aremo.
The training equipped the participants with the necessary skills to become proficient photogrammetrists. A total of fourteen participants were selected for the training. The training provided practical hands-on experience to the participants. They were also trained on techniques for capturing data as well as processing the collected data.
