KVK studies: scanning and 3D modelling using remote sensing and UAV technologies
Klaipeda State University of Applied Sciences (hereinafter KVK) is a higher education institution with strong academic reputation: practice oriented studies of the 3rd biggest university of applied sciences in Lithuania. Graduates are able to successfully apply their knowledge in a real working environment as KVK focuses on study programmes that lead to a profession. A variety of scientific research as well as different projects and consulting activities are executed here. Internationalisation in KVK is of strategic importance, its experience - for more than 12 years in Erasmus programme activities, also Summer Workshops for students from abroad. KVK was participating (2017-2019) in the joint Latvia-Lithuania project – GISEDU. The aim of the project was to increase job opportunities and work force mobility, to develop new GIS competencies matching labour market needs in the region and to improve Joint GIS education services and trainings available. During the project, equipment for big data collecting, processing and modelling was purchased and mastered. Our experience is with different remote sensing methods: remote sensing measurements in the first museum (1812) in Lithuania, located inside the oak stem, Medvėgalis mound, the shore lines of the Baltic Sea at Holland`s Hats. The analyzation of the natural heritage condition of the Kursiu Nerija National park was made using LiDAR technology (case study of Agila dune) and also Klaipeda city’s sculpture park objects were scanned and digitalized with 3D Reshaper software to create 3D models.
