During the week of the 13th to 17th of May, the SMILE network celebrated a week of trainings at Escola de Camins of the Universitat Polit├Ęcnica de Catalunya in Barcelona.

The first training was Professional course III: Producing dissemination short videos I with Katja Schulze and Valentijn Pols from BaselineZ where students learnt how to realize their own geological data visualization through extended reality. The objectives of the course were to present results in a condensed and engaging modern form, interact with other researchers and the public and explore possibilities to add extended reality to educate and inform the public.

 

 

The second training was Technical course I: Ground-deformation monitoring techniques: an overview with Andrea Gatti form GReD and Oriol Montserrat from CTTC. The objetives of the course were to provide a global overview of the main techniques used to measure and monitor ground movements includingsatellite-based techniques (both radar and optical), airborne-based procedures (e.g., photogrammetry, LiDAR, etc.), and in situdata acquisition techniques (e.g., topographic techniques, GNSS, geotechnical and geophysical instrumentation, etc.).
