Speakers: Matthew Vincent and Chance Coughenour

With the destruction of so much of Iraq's rich cultural heritage over recent years, Project Mosul was founded by Matthew Vincent and Chance Coughenour as a volunteer effort to aid in the digital restoration of Mosul's lost heritage. Using crowdsourced photographs from experts, tourists, or anyone with digital imagery, the project has now expanded to apply photogrammetric techniques to create three-dimensional representations of heritage that has been lost around the globe. Matthew Vincent and Chance Coughenour will discuss the creation of the platform and volunteer community which utilised photogrammetry and prompted new dialogues on the cultural value of digital data, particularly regarding lost or destroyed heritage.
