Just a few action shots from the stream table demonstration I helped with as part of the U of O's Geography Awareness Week. Thanks to Jessie for organizing and Sarah and Alanna for being co-demonstrators.

Kinect Field Mapping Trial

Just a quick demo of field mapping with a Microsoft Kinect. We set out to test the Kinect outdoors. Luckily, Scott Creek is under a wonderful canopy of Cascade forest, which was good for the Kinect's infrared depth sensor. Check out the video of collecting and processing the data in the field and below is an interactive 3D point cloud. We used Faro Scenect to collect and process the Kinect data. More to come on this later...
