3D MappingUtilizing a drone equipped with a 4k camera, you can easily create a 3D (three-dimensional) map of an area using photogrammetric techniques.
3D Modeling3D modeling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of an object (either inanimate or living) via specialized software.
3D Printing3D printing, otherwise known as additive manufacturing, is the process of creating a physical object from a 3D file, in this case an STL (stereolithography) file. Generally this process is done by laying down many very thin layers of material in succession. For more details on what kind of 3D printers are available, please see our Equipment page.
3D ScanningUtilizing professional scanning equipment to create 3D models of objects.
Augmented realityAugmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
Big data/data processing
Data management/preservationData resource management is the development and execution of architectures, policies, practices and procedures that properly manage the full data lifecycle needs of a project.
Data visualizationData visualization is viewed by many disciplines as a modern equivalent of visual communication. It involves the creation and study of the visual representation of data, meaning "information that has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information."
Geographic information systemsGeographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data.
High performance computing
InformaticsInformatics is a branch of Information Engineering. As an academic field, it involves the practice of information processing and the engineering of information systems. Studies focus on the interaction between humans and information alongside the construction of interfaces, organizations, technologies and systems.
Laser etching and cuttingEtching or cutting a wide range of materials, from aluminum to wood, with incredible accuracy.
MetadataMetadata is data [information] that provides information about other data.
Mobile Research
Social network analysisSocial network analysis (SNA) is the process of investigating social structures through the use of networks and graph theory.
PhotogrammetryPhotogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. It may also be used to recover the motion pathways of designated reference points on any moving object, on its components, and in the immediately adjacent environment.
Software development
Project managementProject management is the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and seeing to completion the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria.
Social media analysis
Statistical computingStatistical computing is the interface between statistics and computer science. It is the area of computational science specific to the mathematical science of statistics.
Text mining
Virtual realityVirtual reality (VR) typically refers to computer technologies that use virtual reality headsets to generate the realistic images, sounds and other sensations that replicate a real environment or create an imaginary setting. VR also simulates a user's physical presence in this environment.
