Deadline: Monday 8th July
The PhD on 3D data fusion for complex environments will develop novel approaches to fusion of 3D geospatial data, from traditional airborne photogrammetry but using oblique cameras, to high- and low-altitude unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), vehicle-mounted roadside survey vans, and the streams of data from connected and autonomous vehicles, through to indoor mapping technologies. The aim of this project is to explore different requirements for 3D data from different application sectors and use this to drive research into a flexible framework to manage and integrate 3D data from different sources. Ordnance Survey will supply data, use cases and research support. Students will have an opportunity to undertake a placement within Ordnance Survey of between 1 and 3 months, during the PhD, and they will also have the opportunity to attend the Ordnance Survey PhD workshop events.
