TIME used it to bring readers a picture of the destruction of the Amazon rainforest. Emblematic Group and PBS’ FRONTLINE used it to take viewers into the cell of an inmate in solitary confinement. The New York Times uses it to reconstruct journalistic scenes in 3D.
Photogrammetry allows journalists to tell stories about the world around them by creating three-dimensional replicas from photographs.
Learn more about the photogrammetric process and how it can be used for journalism in a new free online course from the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas.
“Introduction to photogrammetry in journalism: capturing your world in 3D” is a massive open online course (MOOC) that will show you how to add the process to your digital toolkit.
The course, which is possible thanks to funding from the Knight Foundation, runs from June 27 to July 24. The MOOC is asynchronous, meaning course activities can be completed on your own schedule, during the four-week period. There are recommended deadlines in place so you don’t fall behind.
